  • Homemade Tool for Really Tight Screws

    I heard about someone making one of these tools some years ago, but I still haven't made one.
    I just saw this one posted today, so I'll use his picture to show the tool.
    Just use your air hammer, then turn the handle while the bit shakes the screw.

    Tom i have a tool like that for frozen brake caliper and wheel cylinder bleeder screws.

    It works great, no heat needed

      for that tool you posted, a real good quality bit is needed so it does not snap, plus it will provide a better grab

    They work great! They have been in the aviation industry for at least 40 years. Used to remove steel screws for aluminum plates, also to chase off foremen, use hearing protection!

      I haven’t had to make one of those - yet....
      On cases like that, especially on motorcycles, I use an Impact Driver like this one...

        That's what I use a lot also, but so far I can't get the stanchion screws loose on my 28 Phaeton.

          There is a difference in quality on those impact drivers and how well they work. My Snap On driver has never failed me

        A homemade tool like that with a blade bit would be good for loosening field screws in a generator-it seems.
