Necessity being the Mother of invention,today I had a particularly tight fan shaft nut,and nothing I tried would loosen it. My son dropped by and together we used a piece of new 1 1/2 tailpipe,a couple of 7/8 woodriff keys and dreamed up this tool. I drilled a 1/2 hole in the upper part to stick a 3/8 extension in,for a handle.It loosened the shaft and then just turning it with your fingers,out it came.

Jack

Love that!

Could have used it this week, had to find a Crescent wrench with small enough jaws to just fit, and use a Vice-Grip pliers for leverage, but your thingy is better!

Don't have one handy to try but wouldn't the adjustable Ford wrench work?

The Ford and Crescent wrenches have the same problem, getting the jaws down inside the opening. Jack that is a good tool. A+

Sounds like you need to go into mass production, Uncle Jack! :-)

OK.
Yes it would be a handy tool. Got it filed away for future use.

They are easy enough to make. Just use an old fan shaft to line them up.

An old tubular spark plug socket or chainsaw wrench would be good to modify too. Nice job Jack!

I think I will add a washer inside,just above the flat areas. It should make the tool like a socket and it will be easier to use to spin the shaft out.

Model a spark plug wrench works good also, Bob
