    I had to remove the NRV on a small stove so I made myself a tool. I already made one a while back but it was a bit rough and ready. This one is a bit better.

    Very Nice. The Coleman NRV's are also tough nuts.

    It should work with lanterns if I slide an o ring over the shaft to protect the inner surface and to stop any lateral movement.

    @ColinG Making your own tools that work well, I believe, is part of the fun. I like what you have done and I'm gunna plagiarise it some :). Thank you for sharing ....:thumbup::thumbup:

    The lathes at school take a real battering so the initial turned finish was really bad - looked like it had been chewed up, so when I got it close to the finished diameter I used a file to clean up the surface which is cheating but it looks OK. I was using scrap materials and the handle had to be aluminium because that's all there was but it works.

    Err, maybe. I made this one in my free time at my school's Tech department but in principle I could, yes.

    It was made from materials in their scrap bin!
