Re: Tools you modified or repaired

Yep, I've got a bunch of ends for mine in a drawer I made for pulling various underbody stuiff on my '89 GT that was all smashed from improper jacking over the years.  I didn't get it perfect, but its 90% better than it was.  Any more was going to require cutting stuff open, etc.  I didn't see the benefit for the work involved.

I made this from tool steel and heat treated it, this gizmo is for crimping battery and weld cable lugs

Man, I wish I had a wire edm.
The body was made on a manual bench top mill and engine lathe used for the punch. I rough drilled the round hole, bored it to size then used  5/16” dia. long flute end mill to “V” the hole.
I had seen pictures of them but just guesstimated my dimensions.

Re: Tools you modified or repaired

I wonder if a person could rough up the end on a small nut splitter and accomplish that?


If multiple things can go wrong, the one that will go wrong will be the one that causes the most damage.

Yeah, that might work, I just like making stuff.
