    Default Fan belt tool Did not want to spend the money!

    I needed a serpentine belt replaced on the sons car and did not want to fight with it and did not want to spend the money on a belt tool.
    I know it could of been done with another tool out of the old box but was trying to make it easier on me with my crippling arthritis but I had seen these before and was tinkering in the shop so I made one for him and one for the box although it would of been cheaper and quicker to by one i figured its all good. made them out of scrap and old socket extensions and put some heat shrink on the handle for a little better grip.

    Defiantly was not as hard on the shoulders as using two wrenches locked together.

    CrazyHorse,

    We wouldn't be here and Miller wouldn't have this forum if everyone could buy something off the shelf.

    I come here to get ideas and learn and am truly grateful that there is still a place for a bozo like me to come get and share ideas.

    Maybe there is a market for a left handed monkey wrench....................

    keep 'em coming !

    Yep I know what you mean, I have seen all sorts of good ideas and shop made tools here thanks to everyone here in the miller forums.

    I am picking up a nice little 9x36 south bend metal lathe in a few days
    so i can tinker around and maybe make a tool or two.
