    Extended Basin Wrench

    I made this when I had a nut rusted to the underside of the faucet, trapping the sink (which I wanted to replace) in place. The traditional basin wrench didn't have enough leverage to break it loose. WD-40 didn't help, and there was consternation about torching it inside the cabinet like it was. It was constructed from a piece of leftover galvanized pipe, a shower valve socket wrench, and a couple of pieces of scrap rod hanging around the garage. This provided the leverage necessary to break loose the nut.

    I modded my jaw style faucet nut wrench, for a similar problem. http://www.homemadetools.net/forum/m...1539#post94060
    Willingly adding this to my plumbing box. MrNurseMan, this is equally useful. I think fitting an entire set of plumbers sockets is doable and worthwhile.
