I built this ice block removing device in the arts and crafts style with a far north influence. It is made out of repurposed/upcycled pine originally sourced from a local Home Depot. The pivoting part has an offset hole so it would float into proper position after being slid through a one inch hole drilled into the ice block. It is held in place by a 2 inch, ten penny nail bent with plyers. It took several minutes to design, build and test.

Amazing bit of technology, there. It seems to work well for it’s intended purpose. That young man appears to appreciate it. Worth every minute you spent on it.

Cool idea, very simple. Now with my luck if I tried it the ice all around me would break and I would get a polar bath. Oh and the device would be at the bottom of the lake/ocean, river whatever….. To further the loss of dignity someone would post a video of it on Youtube!
