Here's a little slide hammer I knocked up out of scrap materials. Useful for pulling pins, dowels, etc., especially in cases where a dowel is in a blind hole.

Congratulations brianhw - your Slide Hammer is the Homemade Tool of the Week!
I took a look through our Slide Hammer Tools and our Vise Grips Tools to make sure this one was Tool of the Week-worthy, and it sure is. We have a nice combo of pullers, punches, vise grip multi-tools, etc. The retaining sleeve method, especially with that ball swivel (I can see that coming in handy in tight confines) seems like a great way to go. Attaches easily, can be used on various vise grips, and does not alter the underlying tool.
Good builders (or artists or authors or designers or whatever) typically create work that is thematically consistent and identifiable as their creation. This slide hammer is no exception; simple and clever application, short-and-sweet video, and scrap bin composition - it's easily recognizable as a genuine brianhw tool.
