OWT I cut the open end off the combination wrench with the chop saw, ground the end on the bench grinder until it fit tightly in the hammer head, then welded it top and bottom with the mig welder. Wrench handle held 5-6 feet of wire. Just noticed I mispelled wrapped.

MRGIZMO this would be for my trail tool kit, wich is a little on the bulky side, but I would like to try to do all my home repairs with what I carry on the bike.

Frog I just have a lincoln flux core welder 120 volt at home wich is fine for 95% of what I do, and would have worked fine for this project, but I welded this on a miller 200 at work (saves my wire). A couple of guys I know have the hobart 135/140 amp handler 120 volt, They seem like a great machine for the home shop for the money.

Howardgene, having been inspired by these 'multi-tool' ideas that have been presented I got an idea for you; The ball-peen end of your hammer may not be a feature that you are likely to use on the TW. If you carefully grind it down to represent a 'stud' onto which you can slip a 3/8th's or 1/2 inch drive socket the use potential may really expand. Granted, it will not ratchet, but with quality (many facets) sockets it will still be very useful (I believe). You can then also use sockets with the appropriate allen-heads. Gerry

Good idea Gerry, I put a rachet head on my tire iron or I would do that. If I were to do it over again I would put my hammer head on a 19mm box end wrench and carry a 22mm socket, since I need 2 19mm's for the front wheel. What if I tacked a piece of 8mm allen wrench on the ballpeen end, and used 1/4" hex bits for my 6mm and smaller allen wrenches.

Boy, do I feel silly. YOur tire iron gave me that idea. Sad to say I did not realize that both muti-tool ideas were presented by the same person. Maybe I will look into just welding a stud for sockets onto one of my tire irons. Gerry
