Has anyone made a homemade knockoff of the dry ice tools sold by Furnace Industries? I'm currently stuck in southwest Michigan looking for something to do in between bouts of climbing at the gym. If anyone has undertaken a project like this I'd be interested in hearing about it.
I made one. The rubber part is an automotive accessory belt. The rubber layer on this is not sticky like the real DI tools' belt. Mostly I made it as a gag. But it seemed to work.
I made some too. For me the loop was a plastic coated steel cable. Quickly enough it had a wrap of athletic tape around it. I made it oversized to take up similar volume as a gloved hand on a normal tool.It was a fun project. I ran a wall at the time so I didn't need permission to use them. I used them all the time. I think it helped with lockoffs and long reaches.
That's pretty cool, man. Good chiseling technique!
A friend made a pair using two pieces of oak sandwiched together then cut out and shaped. I lost the photo he gave me last year of them, else I'd post it for you guys. I'm going to make a pair tomorrow for myself.
