    Stud Tool

    This short article presents a thrown together tool that lets me install and remove studs. Someone new to the metal working hobby should be able to construct it.

    Great idea and it won't screw up the threads like so many of the manufactured tools will. I wish I'd seen this before my last engine rebuild - I wound up double-nutting all the studs for both removal and installation.

    Ken,

    Yes, double nutting works but gets old fast. I was lucky to find all of the bits in my junk box. Sure makes it hard to throw anything away ;-))
