Guilty as charged. Here's another one. My synchro hubs were pressed on so darn tight I really wished I had the factory tool for the job. To replicate its function, I decided to sacrifice a couple of those big lock rings and some cheap wrenches by rigging up the thingamajig shown below.

A big socket fit perfectly into the gear. After a LOT of persuasion with a 3 lb sledge, they finally came off the gear. And yes, that wrench bent quite a few times... call it cold-hardening.
