My Indispensable Tool rev2.
View from bottom side of .5" plywood which served as IT base.
Threaded bolt locks into this plate from top side.
Cover plate prevents spinning arm from scratching firebrick.

A cotter pin held the pivot point in place, which was the end of a long nut that I drilled a hole through for the pin.

View from back of pivot arm base which was created by welding 2 flat washer together to a threaded bolt.

My Indispensable Tool rev2.
Finished product, this worked very well for the entire dome portion of the build.
The 3 wooded legs are attached to the base by hinges to allow for removal of the IT.
Each of the 3 legs has a threaded pad installed in the end to allow each leg to lock against the base of the dome to hold the IT in place and centered throughout the build.

My Indispensable Tool rev2 in action.
I ended up not using a clamp at all through my build.
I found that by holding the brick securely in place w/ my hand, then placing wood shims on the back side that the brick was locked in place.
I applied the mortar, then placed the brick in the IT, then shimmed the back, and added more mortar if necessary.
By time I got a few more bricks done this way, the mortar had set enough to remove the shims and fill the gap left w/ mortar.

Default Indispensable tools sitting idle?

Anyone out there have a usable indispensable tool that is sitting idle? I am still getting requests to make these from my original offer (there is a dozen or so of them floating around out there) but unfortunately I have moved away from all my wonderful toys to make such things. If available just respond here and perhaps people can connect that way.

Thanks,
Jim
