Let's see those tools that you invented/created/adapted to serve a special purpose.

Sure, here's a couple.

Frozen- on oil filter on a Kawasaki Mule 550 where the filter is in an oh so woderful place? No problem....

Got a water valve stem stuck in a wall? Well, no problem!

Didn't exacly want to shell out any money for a Briggs flywheel puller, So I made a little plate adaptor so I can use a regular two jaw puller.

On the corner of my welding table/ workbench rests a handy little gizmo for truing/ beveling up metal stock. I had a yard sale Shop Smith disc sander attachment, a real nice motor, some belting and a welder. Rather hasitly I stuck it all to the corner of the bench, intending that if it worked okay I would make a table just for the sander. Come to find out it works great, and it is really handy right where it is.
