Default Boosty'* not the only one with a short tool...

So, my parent'* were gonna throw this guy away...so I thought an angle grinder and a bench grinder could do wonders to it. Heh, so I just had to show off my amateur metal working skills. I am sure this will come in handy sometime.

Sorry about the shotty photography, its not my style, but I can't take a good picture to save my life this morning.

Oh, and my parents said I would probably find out this thing is worth like $1000 now that I have hacked it off, so if it is I don't want to hear about it

The down side to that is ... it doesn't work well for air mix actuators as I'd hoped. When you find a use...lemme know.

Keep your short tool in your toolbox, nobody wants to see it. :P

But seriously, you may find a need for it one day and be glad you have it. I have a set of the round knurled **** type socket "wrenches" that get used every once in a blue moon. I suspect some similar use would make that handy.
