Are you requesting to join the queue? If so, please see the rules so you know what is expected

I'm adding you - and striknein, you're in for a second round, too.

I think that crank puller is one I put in for the last restart. It worked well for me for several years, but it was rather painful to remove bolts that were on good and tight. The handle isn't long enough to provide a lot of leverage, and I found the narrow handle kind of dug into my hand. This became a spare after I got a Park tool. YMMV...

Yes, the Park tool requires a 15mm wrench. You can remove the handle from the Spin Doctor wrench, but as I recall, the resulting flats take an 8mm wrench. Unless you have an extremely well-stocked tool chest, it's unlikely that your 8mm box wrench will have even half the leverage of the original handle. :-)

if i need extra leverage, i just use a steel pipe i have, it fits over most of my tools and usually gives me all the leverage i ever need

I so want to join this but need to get the count up. I have lots of the oddball goodies. Once my post count is up I want in, it just looks like a fun game more than anything.

That bell was one of the many things that I threw in there, glad it could go to good use. Rusty as hell, but it still went ding!

Please add me to the queue. I have some good crap and some really crappy crap to add to the box. (I promise the really crappy crap is not space-intensive.)

I have received it but do not yet have pictures to post, I will get it in the mail on Saturday. I would have it done sooner but between work, kids going back to school and my own school work, I am one burnt piece of toast.

BTW Gordo, I really dig the blue Trek with the brown seat and bar tape you have at the link in your signature. Is that the '82 412? I really like the grey mountain bike and the Raleigh too but that blue Trek really looks great.

thanks for the kind words,
yes thats an 82' 412, built it up over the winter, im sure you can find the forum post on it, and the grey trek mtn bike i built the year before its a 1990 trek 930, i rebuilt it with brand new components and had the frame powdercoated.. lots of fun but expensive...

not sure what im going to do this winter.... maybe the wife's bike

I'd be willing to bet at small stakes that he did indeed.

Macbethpoe: please check your PMs and check into the thread. You're next up to receive The Box and are being paged for your mailing address

Everyone else: check the roster on Page One/Post One and see where you're at; remember, the person in front of you needs your mailing address in order to send you the box.

Hey guys I'm sorry about the delay, I have fallen on some hard times and won't be able to participate, so if you haven't already, go ahead and skip to the next person. Bummer, I have been waiting quite a while. Thanks guys, sorry for the inconvenience.

Bummer deal, macbethpoe - I'm sure I speak for all of us here when I say I hope things improve for you with a quickness

Thanks for checking into the net with your update; I've notated the first post with a placeholder for you, so when you're up and running again, check in with us and we'll slot you into the rotation again. Okay?

jrhii - you ready to receive?
