A few jobs back a guy had a setting tool for lead expansion anchors for use in hollow walls that he made himself. I should have gotten a better look at, I was trying to figure out how he put it together. Has anyone here made one?

I had to re-locate a control cabinet that the elevator guys had put up in a CACF room and they had used 8 zamacs to hold it up...man was I cursing them. Grinder wouldn't fit in there. They work great, but try getting them out again lol.
Pull the center nail out with a cats paw, then the whole thing with the nail puller. That's if you have room for said nail puller, otherwise, just blow it up.

I've hit them with a 1/4" metal drill bit. Destroys the damn anchor in the road and they come out like a rivet. :thumbsup:

I've never seen a diy set tool, but I'd like to. I have the Greenlee 3/8" tool, I'd also like a 1/4" but don't want to pay $65 for one.
