    -dustin......put this together years ago and no complaints so far.....

    sharpies (for huffing), tubular glue (for huffing), and a lighter (for freebasing) were the only other things i forgot to mention.....



    the blue bag has all the smaller specific tools and the black bag has some wheel tools.....tackle boxes have the small everything.....



    below that is everything else....bottles with ferrules, various greases, slightly heavier tools to the left, king hub tool, teflon tape for leaky disc caliper bleed valves, headset spacers, and a spare XTR 8 speed cassette (for me of course and not for sale).



    behind the main pallet is a good place for the 24 ft. rolls of housing (i keep two rolls of shift in 4 and 5 mm in black and gray and one roll of brake in black and gray) and spare chainrings (for me again and not for sale).



    cheap and sturdy....for all the stuff i don't need every 10 minutes.....



    above there's headset wrenches, cheater bar, various spares, and my favorite.....technical documents that clearly illustrate how to adjust/install whatever. if someone has a real interest i don't mind showing them the steps and so on.




    a large metric caliper....but the ideal place for it BUT......since this box doesn't tip over when it's carried.....there isn't a really need to worry about damage.



    headset tools, disc tab facing tool, tensiometer, boxes packed with brake and shift cable, and spare housing and other tools.....
    It’s impossible to rate welding/brazing quality by looking at a finished frame joint, even an unpainted one. Files, sandblasting, and a good paint job can take care of that. Such a joint will look stellar unpainted, but won’t last. Yet people all the time look at frames and say, “Nice welding/brazing…” The point isn’t to make you paranoid, just to stop saying things like, “That’s nice welding/brazing,” when you see a painted/unpainted frame. -- Grant Petersen

    one slip and most are done....it's best to always use a QR......



    misc.....shimano freehub body service tool.....pointless since it takes a tenth of the time and $30-$100 to replace......and in most cases.....i kept the old one and ended up taking it apart to see if it could be serviced.....i've not come across one that could have been saved. not one.






    from now defunked Wrench Force.....
    8 mm on one side and 14 mm on the other in cases where there is still a pedal attached to the crank arm.....the central portion slides on the bar to get past the pedal. plus extension.


    you can find them for cheap on eBay.....


    wrench force also had these made for them by the snap on people.....




    they come up on eBay often.....

    this stuff will not wash off....same lime green stuff that's on the chains and components....but good for bolts and so on.....



    the site is a bit dated but the tools are very well thought out and work better than everything else out there......

    this is version IV of the of the cutting guide......works as good as it looks......



    i'm not sure why i saved these but they have come in handy since people seem to crash bad enough that these pop out.......ha!

    Carlos related tool box:
