Curious how many of you guys build your own tools - be it for saw work or other? This thread is a place to post up your creations and share your inventions with others.

They say necessity is the mother of invention.

I needed a tool to remove some rubber anti-vibe bushings. I think I could have bought one, but I didn't want to hunt one down and wait for it to arrive in the mail. So, I took an old collet wrench I had laying around and got busy with my 4-1/2" grinder.

I love all of it. I'm a fan of make it yourself.

I'm a poor person and I'll build every tool I can and I like seeing you guys do the same.
Agreed. I'm poor and cheap. I'll be damned if I'd pay 100 bucks or even 10 for something that I can bang out in a hour.
