My late start to the 2022 riding season received a further delay when one of the fork seals on my 2008 Yamaha FJR 1300 started leaking on my first ride of the year. The fork rebuild proved to be one of the most frustrating and haphazard maintenance tasks I’ve tackled, but I came away from the experience with more confidence in my mechanical abilities than ever before.
With how hot it got this summer in Cleveland, Ohio, I finally found the motivation to buy a floor fan for my garage/workshop. After doing some research, I settled on Harbor Freight Tools’ Central Machinery 20 in. High Velocity Floor Fan, and I’m very pleased with my purchase.
Several of the big box home improvement stores offer a version of a horizontal eight-gallon air compressor at a reasonable price. My recent purchase of one such compressor got me started on researching just how much I could do with it – without spending a fortune on tools.
