Fore those of you who like to make your own tools

have you seen this web site

http://www.homemadetools.net/

There is a lot of cool stuff there.  I have only spent a few minutes but I am sure I will be spending hours looking over some of the cool tools people have made.

Scanning that website quickly, some of those projects make my heart thump.  I am sure there are some projects that are reasonable to accomplish but some of them would take so much time to find and gather up the components, not to mention the fabrication time, that you should have just gone out and bought one.

I like making tools, maybe cause I used to be a tool and die maker, right now I'm working on a special wrench to get at the door hinge bolts without taking off the front fenders.

How 'bout plans for making a rotisserie?  Free plans, that is.
http://redwingsteelworksplans.com
The same site has free plans for a 6X10 2 wheel trailer.
And, there are a bunch of welding videos you can watch for free.
Ya just go to the site and copy the plans.  They look pretty complete, including a materials cut list.
Good Luck.
