The bent wrench is my favorite example of a homemade tool. I'm not kidding - it's our logo!

This site is nothing but "rainbow ponies with bent wrenches".

Make your own 1.8 crank bolt removal tool. Bolt circle is 53mm, if you prefer.

It's not perfectly perfect, and the 15" length and its precision are up to your discretion , but it works great.

yep- AFM on 87 190e 2.3-16 is underneath the fuel distributor between it and the cylinder head. I went with a 1/4" drive philips bit and a 1/4" gear wrench. Tight fit o-rings on each side of the bit held it in.

Default 3D printed rear crank seal tool.


I had to put a new rear seal in my NB. I reverse engineered the hole pattern, crank, and seal. Designed this part and printed it. Worked great.

Thingiverse.com is a completely separate website. You'd need to upload there.

Thanks. I was wondering if there is a place to post on this site for the Miata crowd?
