Home Made Tools

I haven't seen one around, so I thought I would start a thread where we can all share tools that we have made ourselves out of scraps, repurposed things, whatever gets the job done. Give and get some Ideas.

Pictures are strongly encouraged, everyone likes pictures!

Here's an adjustable bearing puller I made to get my carrier bearing off when I changed it. Made out of 1/4" flat stock, bolts with wing nuts, and a few nuts on a threaded rod. The small springs keep it on what you're working on so it won't go anywhere even when it's not tightened yet.

Nice adjustable bearing puller. I have a store bought one that is too short. Instead of buying another one at 90 bucks from the store, I replaced the arms with longer flat stock I had lying around. I like your design with the extra holes which makes it adjustable, I didn't think about it at the time. I will have to incorporate that into mine. Can't wait to see what other members have invented and innovated.

Ill have to remember to get a pic of my window removal tool. It sounds dumb but it makes getting the window out of your truck a very simple job.
