$100 Ideas

Dual-Purpose Pliers

To loosen or tighten stubborn hose clamps, I made a tool that gets the job done in a snap. On the handle of a pliers, I welded a 5⁄16" socket sideways to the end. The sideways mount gives me extra leverage when a screwdriver won't work. Having the tip on a pliers means I don't need another tool in my toolbox—it just makes my pliers work double-time.

Bean Saver

We run soybeans through a seed wagon. When moving the spout from box to box across our

16-row planter, we always spilled some seed on the ground. I had the idea to attach a rain cap of the correct size to the end of the spout so it can be

easily closed. Now when we move among the seed boxes, we don't spill as much seed.
