Make shift vice grip slide hammer? I mean, it should work.


Shaun_B

They work amazingly well when they're needed.

Here’s a commercial version: https://www.toolweb.com/ast78415.html


ReptilianOver1ord

I made one a few years ago to get CV shafts out of my truck. Worked great.

You haven't seen interesting until you've seen what linemen do. I once saw a blow torch on the end of a hot stick to melt ice on a switch.


ThinBlueLine-204

I've duct taped one to the end of a roof shovel pole in order to kill of tent caterpillars. (Idk what the proper name for the snow removal thing is)


omega2346

A roof rake?


ThinBlueLine-204

Yeah, that. Couldn't think of the name

It’s not stupid if it works...


goddamnzilla

I would buy that.


TheMillwrong91

These are not stupid and plenty of people in my trade have these, these are a necessity on some jobs. They’re modified dowel/shroud pullers for when you need to pull metal shrouds out of grooves caked in shit or when you blow out a dowel that’s halfway out. Considering the eyelet on the end it’s a shroud puller.


Healthy-Gap9904

Yep! I made a similar one for pulling compressor valves. And stuck pins A good portion of the toolbox/service truck Is full Of custom and hand built tooling. I have all kinds of strong backs and pullers that I’ve fabricated over the years.


TummyPuppy

That’s awesome! I appreciate the explanation.


DontFuckWithDuckie

I'm pretty sure it's for pulling teeth


366Pete

Made one similar for pulling a stuck cv axle.


nevisian

Looks better than the slide hammer I have lol


UpsetYet

That is the slap jaws of life, if this doesn't break it loose, the world ends.


SuperHeavyHydrogen

Oh yeah, we got a thinker on board.


PermitNo1231

These work amazingly well. Used them a lot in The injection molding industry when parts got stuck I. The molds.


Wabbastang

Yep odd as it may sound, slide hammer vice grips is not an unusual contraption. Many stuck items have been freed with this last ditch effort tool.


Brodybishop

I've made one of these before. Works well.
