Here is what the Nest sold. I see you can get them elsewhere for around $10.

I don't think I can design one of those on my own, some day I might have to go proper and lose the rambler mentality

i dont really have any pics of my "home brew" tools. as they are usually meant to be just one time use things. lol. i work at an auto repair shop, so i have alot of the stuff for pressing bearings and such with the press at work. (i know, yall will say im spoiled.) i really like my dewalt 12 volt 3/8 drive impact gun. as for the column lock plate remover, i found one that has 2 different sizes for ford/chevy/chryo and like 4 different shaft sleeve sizes. i think i paid like $15 or so for it, so it wasnt even worth my time to try to cobble up something. i wish i had a you pull it yard closer than 100 miles away. my 12 volt impact would be the MAIN tool for that!!! its small enough to get into a LOT of places, makes quick work of anything that has about 60lbs of torque or less. its only problem, the dewalt batteries arent built sturdy enough to handle the vibration from it all day every day. batteries only cost $50 for it, but i keep supergluing them, and rebending contacts, and such. lol. i need to get ahold of dewalt and see if they will warantee my batteries as its less than a year old.

Love my battery impact, mine's a Mikita, not a whole lot of ass, but still handy as hell.

1985amceagle got me thinking, my old lockplate cobbler was a shitty idea, so last night, I built a much better one :blazin: .

Maybe I'll test it out this weekend, I need to remove and re code the lock cylinder in the parts car anyway, :popcorn: .

lol, operation is very simple though, uses the steering wheel lock nut as an anchor, then just tight the top nut to draw the achor upward pushing the legs down on the lock plate :blazin: .

:epiphany: what would happen if you weld a piece of rod to the top bolt to where it works like a wing nut? I don't know if I should coppy this design, or go ahead and build my own that I already thought about.

One could do that, but I still have yet to do the final trimming on the threaded rod, when done, I'll just be able to use my battery impact on it for quick easy operation. Keep in mind, mine requires more material, welding, cutting, and grinding to replicate. I had all the junk laying around, so all it cost me was a cutoff wheel, some electric, some mig wire, shielding gas, and a bit of my time.
