Since George finally got his sticky here, I thought I'd re-post my review that I posted a few weeks ago in this thread:

So you’re reading the manual and it says “Remove the widget-arm with H-D special tool number 12345.” What the hell is this special tool and where do you get it? Most folks that wrench on their own bike know who sells the special ones – if by special you mean expensive. Some of these are so expensive that people often break things trying to figure out the best wrong way to do it.

Enter “George’s Garage

George makes and sells Service Tools for use on Harley Davidson Motorcycles. He’s been a wrench for a while and he decided that he could do as good as or better than the folks selling them now, and do it at a better price.

I was working on my Ironhead recently and noticed the “Primary Drive Locking Tool” that George sells is about $10 cheaper than the one in the catalog I was reading. I figure it’s time to give George a try. I send him my money and in a few working days I have a package. Come on; admit it, we all love packages! On top of the prompt service, a question to the email address on his website was answered promptly and courteously.

So, the tool itself is not rocket science. I mean, it jams the chain. What I noticed immediately though was that I no longer have to scrounge up a piece of wood, an old drive belt, whatever to lock the chain - it saves me time. I also don’t have to worry about destroying what I put in there (I have MANY screwdrivers with chewed handles) or breaking one of the teeth on the sprocket with something that was too hard - it saves me money.

For $21 I always have the right tool at the right time. Unless you’ve tried one (Primary Drive Locking Tool), you have no idea how much easier it makes things.

George is a great guy to buy from. Fast shipping and great service. I ordered a locking tool from him and was about half the price of the name brand. I'm planning on filling my box with George's cam tools soon. He's got some great deals on specialty tools. I highly recommend trying him out. Thanks George!

Fast shipping. The primary sprocket locking tool looks top notch. Definitely a quality product.

I will definitely buy more specialty tools from this guy as needed!

I hope he comes out with a wheel bearing puller for late model Harley wheels. Jims wants over 200 bucks for theirs.

George's Tools....Simply, Great!

I own the entire TC88 cam install/removal set of tools. Having worked in the aviation field over 25 years, and as a 1A tool inspector, I can tell you that these tools are of excellent quality and workmanship, and function as designed to.

Thanks, George for great quality tools that the average mechanic can afford. I highly recommend these tools to any "Do it your-selfer..."

Well I put the locking tool to the test yesterday torquing the compensator nut on the engine. The tool did what it was supposed to without tearing up. That is one tough sprocket tool! Especially with the clamp load you've got to put on that nut and your own while torquing it for that matter!

I dont think so...

I dont think VTF members get a discount from Georges tools, but I can tell you one thing. HE STANDS BEHIND HIS TOOLS. Not only that but he places alot of importance on his reputation and he is less expensive than the "other guy". I had a problem with an an order so I sent him an email and low and behold he calls me personally! Hows that for customer service? (!) I inquired about the warranty on his tools because the local indy here said he uses the "other guys" tools and mentioned he has broken a few of them. I asked how did the "other guy" handle the situation when you called and told him one had broken. He said, we can get another one right out to you.......AT FULL PRICE! Now I under stand George may not offer a lifetime warranty on commercial use of his tools but he did tell me that if I break one, send it back and I'll replace it free. What else needs to be said!

That is the reason that I have George listed in my links section. I use his tools in my rental tool kits and thus far no issues

Kudos to George. Just received the inner cam bearing puller and the wrist pin tool. Very professional transaction. I ordered, got confirmation and an email when it shipped with the tracking number. The package arrived very quick.

Thanks George!
