The homemade specialty tool thread!

I offer you my newly made trans output flange puller. Made of some 1/4" plate, 2" pipe, BMW rear axle, and threaded parts from a chinese gear puller which long ago suffered a broken leg. It worked great. That thing was super tight!

If anyone needs it, you're welcome to borrow it.
I really get a kick out of making up tools out of junk laying around, and would love to see ones that others have made. Post'em up!

Oh yeah? My cheapo universal puller set with 10 different threaded studs cost less than your welder.

Actually there are a lot of these in the Tips&Tricks thread.

I think he gets the cool points on this one, though.

Pretty darn neat.

Some more transmission tools...

Here is what I've come up with to help with rebuilding transmissions.

Out put shaft flange puller and holder sitting on top of my disassembly/reassembly box:



Detail of puller:



Puller was made from steel plate and a castellated nut, as you can see in this pic:



Underside of the box where the shafts drop after heating the trans and tapping it down on the box frame. You can see the hole for the input shaft when I turn it over for shimming:

Saved five bucks and made this fabulous rear main seal remover. I have no idea what else it's good for.

True that. Most of my special tools crumble back into piles of nuts and bolts and broken bed frames as soon as I'm done with them.

Now that's a very literal interpretation of a slide hammer. I might go make one of those.

Pinching your fingers ?

I have to agree with Airhead Wrangler, it is the most literal interpretation of a slide hammer I have yet seen, kudos.

Melville- I like that centering tool. I once made one up on a wood lathe out of a piece of locust, which is about as hard as woodpecker lips. Too bad I can't find it anymore, a I'll need one again soon. Kai Ju, that output flange puller looks super tidy. What did you cut the flange out with? It looks factory made. Keep 'em coming, I'm really enjoying seeing what solutions you all have come up with.

Driveshaft coupling bell holder (to remove or torque the nut without straining the universal joint).



Holder with socket.



With socket in place.



So, you thought there was never going to be any use for those trigonometry classes. Think again!
