    I've been doing something similar but working with a set of bigger tools. 6" or so. I feel the smallest vice grips are less than optimal.

    i was going to suggest something along these lines, without the handle though.
    like a fist pack hammer strike.
    maybe knurled steel filled with lead?

    id be interested if you come up with anything.

    Hey SAK, Bahco makes a convertible crescent/pipe wrench, I carry a pair in my pouch, which are pretty similar to the OP's.

    Looooove those tapes, the most compact ten-footers I've seen. They're hard to find these days, though. Where'd ya get yours?

    Huh. I got mine at ACE and Home Depot, don't recall seeing 'em at Lowe's, but next time I'm out there I'll take another look. Thanks!

    Looks good. Does it all fit ok - Is there any room in the case? I know there a little stubby hammers you can find which may fit, but they might be a bit bulky for what you are trying to do.

    I've seen a similar tool in red color sold in the tool department at the local Meijer's store. They look like they require a good amount of clearance arount the fastener.
