Mine was a windshield removal tool made out of bicycle brake wire and its handle bar grips for comfort. Cracked a few windshields at first, but those BMX handlebar grips were really comfortable. I used this tool for a few years, mostly on old hondas that rusted in lower driver side and creaked the windshield due to stress of the uni-body. Once the windshield was removed, could weld in a few brace plates and still use old windshield once I got the hang of my new tool BMX recycled homemade tool. No worries guy's, got my son a new BMX, he had grown out of that one anyway. Would use drill bit paste to give the wire bite and lubrication. Can't wait to see if this new thread will take off. I think we all have used unconventional tools or made them ourselves, but remember SAFETY FIRST. If your tool hurt someone else or yourself, post the experience, but do not give us the plans of it. Some unsuspecting person may just try it at home.
