    And the multi-color assortment of electric tape. Ready for any build color combo imaginable. Very pro. And if we are getting all CSI I am speculating that is baby or talcum powder residue next to the keyboard for extra attention to detail inner tube wipedowns./img/vbsmilies/smilies/biggrin.gif

    " Campy you are correct on all accounts LOL ."

    What is best in life, Conan?

    "Surfing the web for porn while truing wheels and repacking hubs while perusing the Harbor Freight ad for new tools! Oh...and to hear the lamentations of my woman when she cleans the lightswitch!"

    You are close. The tool is behind the glasses. It is a bb30 bearing press. I also have 24mm drivers coming for the press. So i can press in any bottom Bracket. I got the press from a store on ebay for $25 shipped.

    I see another difference in the two pics--the paintbrush between the scissors and the cable snips.

    It's a beautiful bicycle workshop! Any serious cyclist would envy such a complete and neatly organized setup. But I have a question:
    Is that your complete and only workshop?

    I have a lot of tools for working on everything from the mowers, to plumbing, to woodwork.... and have [SADLY] separated my bicycle specific tools to a bicycle toolbox. Is this your expanded version of a bicycle toolbox... or do you do "other" repairs and such.. or limit the other stuff to a toolbox?

    "I have a lot of tools for working on everything from the mowers, to plumbing, to woodwork.... "

    ...motorcycle tools...cars & truck tools...tractor and farm machinery tools...building construction tools...tools of mass destruction (aka long, skinny handled tools that mainly destroy my back!)...micro tools for instrumentation...hobby tools...electronic tools...firearm tools...plumbing & electrical tools...

    All those tools and i STILL need to put some black fingerprints on the garage light switches to piss off my wife!

    Hippie owns us all unless we can post pictures of grease prints on the switch plates...or...at least a 55-gallon drum of empty PBR cans beside the work bench!
