    I just bought the Wiper tool, Ignition tool, and the Light/Wiper Switch tool from Danchuck. I was shocked at the delivery cost but I was tired of using needle nose pliers, screw drivers, and regular pliers! I'm a happy camper now!!! I also bought the set of Clutch head screw drivers.

    This morning I went digging through my shop and found a 10' length of 1/2 inch metal conduit (left over from when I wired a prior garage), so I cut off an 8" piece (for making two of the wiper nut tools). I verified that the sizing is nearly perfect for fitting around the wiper transmission threads and aligning with the retaining nut... and I believe the conduit metal thickness/strength IS sufficient for tightening or loosening the nut. (This is the reason I'm a packrat and SAVE everything - but being a packrat and saving everything is WHY it takes me so long to find what I KNOW I have .. somewhere!)..

    Unfortunately for me after getting started on making them, I found out that my air lines (somewhere) have sprung a leak and I can't get enough air pressure/volume to the cutoff tools to speed this job up (and FILING it is very slow - but it will work).. air line troubleshooting is exactly what I needed to do today!

    Start with a bench grinder then finish with a file. Then drill a hole in the other end so you can stick a phillips screwdriver in hole for tightening & loosening.

    I don't know how you do much with a bench grinder and a file. A cutoff wheel makes more sense to me except for the last little bit removing the inside radius. I'd want my raw stock to be thicker than electric conduit too. I made mine on a milling machine.
