    I need the dimensions to make one.

    I've done some searches and cannot find anything but tools for sale.

    Does anyone have a link or a drawing with specs?

    I had the same problem. I used my Mk 1 eyeball and made one that works. I started with a piece of .125" black pipe and drilled it out to clear the firing pin.Then I filed/Dremeled the prongs to sorta fit the notches on the firing pin. Mine came apart fairly easily so torque wasn't a big deal. If it was stuck the soft steel might be a problem the first time you try this.

    If nobody comes up with anything better I'll try to take some pictures tonight and post them. I'm computer challenged so this could be an adventure.

    Thanks, guys!

    THR is once again superior to several well-know search engines when it comes to finding serious gun-bits. :D

    That's the very critter! Thanks!

    That .125 pipe idea is a good one for out here in the middle of nowhere.
    I make a lot of my tools from what I find in various shed corners.
    Mk1 eyeball rules! :)

    greg531mi provided the print but I still needed to practice the picture thing and this was a good excuse.

    The pipe was slightly oversize so I chucked it up in a drill press and filed it down to fit. The shank is longer than necessary but wasn't worth cutting off. It's crude but functional. That's usually how my wife describes me. :neener:

    Thanks longrifleman...

    That's the sort of "it'll do" tool that keeps the Northern Territory operating.

    You should see some of the Aboriginal cars running around here. :eek:

    Looks like you've got the picture posting knack.

    Thanks to P95's tutorial. Couldn't have done it without the help.
