homemade FAL stock removal tool

I can't find the original article describing this homemade tool. I did still have the printed copies though. I notice they were printed on 12/19/02. I scanned my copies and also took a few pics of my removal tool. I've seen posts on a regular basis concerning removal of the FAL stock and hopefully, some folks might get some use from this. Thanks to whomever posted this originally!

Nice!

I could also see grinding (dremel?) a short bevel just inside the socket walls to center the tool on grip screws more easily.

Thanks! I made mine back around '02 or '03 and it's the only tool I've used to remove FAL butt-stocks; works like a charm.
