Cheap Pinch Tools:

I posted some of this on another thread.

I had some spare PVC pipe and made some pinch tools for less than a $1. I used a fender washer inside the hub tool. I was surprise that the 4" PVC coupler handles the weight quite well:

Here they are compared to the IronMind items:

The 4 inch piece is used like a pinch block (picked up with the hand) and the small one is used like a pinch hub (picked up with the fingers).

Although I normally use the Ironmind ones, I have arthritis in one hand so having smaller weights set up makes workouts go faster.
