Home Made Sphere Removal Tools

Post by G4EIY »

The picture below shows 2 tools that I have made, they both work, and to date have not failed.
I use rubber ring cut from an old Mini inertube to fit between the sphere and the tool, I find this gives extra grip, and the tools do not rotate when hit with a hammer.
With the small one, I use a socket with an extension attached, and belt the end of the extension with a hammer.
I gave them a lick of paint for the posting.
A picture is worth a thousand words.

Hi All,
G4EIY is right. Pictures say more than a thousand words. I found the description elsewere on the forum but I can't remember the brains owners name [:(]
If anyone would like to borrow it, just send me a mail [:)]
The threads gets a VERY firm grip on the spheres rendering the tool VERY effective. The total price for me was ca. 2.5 EUR and 20 minutes of fun(ish) work. Really not bad...
