This instructable shows how to make a vise-grip slide hammer. The slide hammer can be used for about anything that you can think of. If you can clamp it with the vise-grips, you will be able to pull what is stuck free.

Tap handle 10. Tap magic cutting fluid 11. Cutting oil 12. Lathe 13. Bench grinder 14. Welder (I use TIG) 15. File 16. 10-1.5 / 25mm cap head screw
<p>Great I'ble -- the amount of uses for a slide hammer are surprisingly high!!</p>
<p>Nice. For anyone wondering if you really need a slide hammer, it's the difference between tearing your hair out for an hour and being done in ten seconds. This is a cool addition.</p>
Really cool!
Dad used this method, except with a threaded hole drilled into the center of a main bearing pin on a printing press. As far as I know, there would otherwise be no way to dig that pin out of its channel, being completely flush with the shaft that it engaged. Non-spooky action at a distance! <br> <br>Mike
now if I just had the tools to make this one...
Cool idea but what would you use this for?
umm dent puller <br>
Very good idea. Now off to the work shop to gather up the materials.
I made something like this a good few years ago and it is a truly 'must have' tool. Thank you very much for having the energy to bring the idea to a wider public :-) <br> <br>I wish you well, <br>Steve.
Excellent idea!
Great hack on traditional tool. We used to use these to clean die casting from injection molding machines. A screw in the vise grips and ya have a dent remover . Well done!!
That is really clever and would definitely come in handy. Well done!
