    Easy to make and very useful.

    A set of ice tongs from ebay

    3/4" pipe from my junk pile, and a piece of washing machine drain hose for a grip.
    I drove wooden wedges into the end of the pipe to stablize the hook.

    The odd one is made with a tooth of a pole cimbing spike welded to a bolt. I found the climbing spike in the weeds where some lineman had dropped it.

    Bill, I love seeing homemade ingenuity. I'm the same way, I love to re-purpose things.

    Those tools will come in handy over the years...BTW, welcome to the forums!
