COOL TOOLS YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT

Recommended Posts

I came across this looking for a way to avoid snapping rusted studs.

I am sure there are many other cool tools out there that turn a shit task into an easy one.

Do you know it this works on stainless?  Some induction heating coils do and some don't - has a lot to do with the frequency of the power supply to the coil.

If its magnetic it will work, if not magnetic, no go.

Thanks for this video! I went on to ebay and ordered instantly the cheap chinese version for home use:

Super cool but a small butane pencil torch will do the same thing with good aiming precision and would work on non-magnetic stuff, larger nuts that won't fit inside the coil, in tighter spaces, and wherever there's no electricity. I imagine it's also at least 10X cheaper, maybe 100X than the Snap-on tool.

Maybe only high carbon content stainless that is closer to being ferrous and has degraded accordingly.

Victor makes a wrench that does that.

Some induction coils work on non magnetic - depends on the frequency of the power applied to the coil

This hack works great on frozen bolts and nuts. If you haven't broken the bolt or stud yet then ignore the reference to welding. Use common sense so your not passing current through delicate electronic components.

Starts at the 2:00 mark to get right to the useful part.
