Making And Modifying Custom Tools

At some point every mechanic, will need a custom tool. Whether you are a master technician or an automotive DIYer the perfect tool does not always exist. So we have to either make a tool, or modify an existing tool to fix our car repair needs. Maybe the tool we need is just too expensive. Maybe it doesn’t exist, or maybe you have to be a dealership to get the tool. Whatever the reason, having to make or modify tools is extremely common.

    Hi Charles, I use the key that comes with angle grinders,(to set a disc on the shaft) and a cheap G clamp or mini sash clamp for getting the caliper back on rear wheel brake fixes. I clamp the caliper so that i can press it in by turning the handle, while the grinder key is used to turn the caliper back down. Works really well and real easy too. Cheers, Ira

    Hi Charles twenty five years ago or so before I picked up a set of crows feet I would take my extra box wrenches heat and bend the required degree to remove bolt in hard to reach places. Really enjoy watching you on YouTube Bob.
