DIY Valve Tool
Since I can't justify paying $19 + $7.08 for USPS First Class shipping for a piece of square-ended pipe from Palmer's, I got creative and made my own.

I used a Taiwanese 1/4" nutdriver and ground four sides of it flat on the bench grinder. It's not the prettiest but it worked to remove the valve retaining nut from my PMI-I. And it was free.

Very nice. I wish i would have thought of that. Luckily Titus sold me a tool for 19 shipped but I'm sure that cost you a couple bucks. Way to go

I would just like to say that I love you Automagger. This has solved my valve problems. Now I just need to figure out what's wrong with everything...

Your valve tool is far prettier than the one I built, it also looks easier to use.

Cool idea. Thanks for posting.

Just as a warning for all, this tool is only good for clean sheridans that have been serviced at least once in their lifetimes. If the retaining nut isn't moving, do not force it!

What about the threaded end of Sheridan valve tool

That end is more for convenience than necessity. I think you could still use the empty 12 gram with a dowel rod method for everything else (you need something that won't shear off the nutsert).

As for me, I just bought the tool.

Nicely done. I made one out of a piece of rebar before I had an actual sheridan valve tool. Worked but wasn't as nice as this.

this is a great idea. I'm trying it asap. It does helps that I'm rebuilding 4 Sheridans.
