    I still use the punch, cold chisel, and dust pan I made in AGM205 from my sophomore year at Clemson. Works like a champ. We made wooden handled screwdrivers too, but that one has been lost for a while.

    Heck yeah I still got mine. My dad stole the screwdriver from me. But that is fine since mine looked like crap.

    I have several home grown pry bars, and punches. Until i got relieved of it, I had a home made so or lift jack I made using an old airbag. It was real skinny on the lift end to fit under my low rider.
    I made a post hole digger with some pipe a valve and hook it to the water hose. It got lost in the last move.
    I have made all sorts of strange stuff over the years.

    Once I get my scrap steel supply back up I'll be building my own tire bead popper. Very simple actually. Problem with the store bought ones is they only work on a tire up to a 33". I'll make one for up to a 44".

    Those work great. I had one years ago at an old job. It was stolen before I could get it moved.
