I made a poor man's CV tool out of an old 5/8 wood drill bit. Left the point on to center it, but ground it down a bit to fit. Has a steel tube collar covered with bike inner tube rubber to protect the pump tube. It would not work on one I tried, as the slot is a bit too chewed up. Will still need a proper tool for that one. This should work on a good CV. The blade is wider and thicker than my biggest screw driver. Hex end for socket. Most bits will probably not have a hex end, so threading it with 2 nuts should work.
Worth a try anyhow and so Rube Goldberg and thrifty too, Gar

Remember... if it's not Scottish... it's CRAAAAAP!

Rhubarb made a tool from a socket.  This looks like it would mess up a stuck NRV.  Maybe use the money saved buying yard sale stuff and buy a proper tool.

These are some I've done. I found that there is different thicknesses of slot and tube lead in size. That's why the two different versions. I've probably got to many hours and a little money invested in these where it would've been cheaper to buy the correct one... But sometimes it's not about the money... But about the challenge..

I think there are some youtube videos showing a similar setup. I think a 1/2" spade bit is used with most of the point ground off so the flukes fit in the check valve slots. The fluke cutting face might need to be ground flat or a reverse angle made to help prevent the flukes from walking out of the valve slots.

Ya the proper tool is really the way to go. Having it thread into the CV's air stem to hold it down is proper. I did get the idea from a youtube video, but it was a bit crude and reckless using a drill. I could imagine pump tube damage. A 3/4 bit also fits in the tube, but is getting close to the tube and wider than the protective collar I had. Not sure what a fluke is? Nice ones Toby. The collar fits the tube I guess.

Yes here's some examples in use

Toby, nicer still! Helps to have a machine shop or metal lathe anyway. You got the toys.

I'm just lucky to have the tools my father has accumulated over the years. We have a nice milling machine... But our lathe was originally run on flat belts... So it could use an update. My dad likes to call it galloping gurdy because it sounds like a stamped when running ðŸ˜

"Not sure what a fluke is?"

I was just referring to the blade portion of the bit. Using a drill would be some what out of control for what is needed. I use a setup like below when a wrench/ratchet can't be used and I need to apply extra seating force and controlled torque to break fasteners lose.

Primitive! But I have done it too, only with a crescent wrench and square shaft screwdriver. Most of my CVs have come out or were fine after carb cleaner and a wire poke. Another youtube video has a guy with a Snap-On (Snap-Off) tool that has a bit and you hit it with a hammer which rotates the bit slightly while jarring loose the offender.

Tobey, is the lathe run off the PTO of a Power Wagon  >:*)>

Lol not exactly. I can't fit it all in one picture but basically it's running a double V belt clutch setup to a large 3 phase motor... Then we have a homemade 3 phase inverter powering that... Antiquated

I'm a poor man. Money-wise, anyway. I bought The Tool, and will never look back. The threaded rod is the thing. It pulls the tool into the slot, and will even extract a pretty well FUBAR'ed CV.

Here's one that was pretty much broken in half:

Came right out.

Oh, yeah, I fixed the case for that:

Better now.

I buy LOTS of tools, but rarely new ones. I made an exception for the CV tool, and agree; it's far and away better than any jury rigged driver, no matter how well fitting.

Be really careful using a bit like that. I break those things on a daily basis, drilling holes in wood panels at work. I use 1 1/2" bits, and the tips just don't hold up. You may be fine as long as the check valve isn't stuck, but get one that's a bit tight or stuck and you'll wish that you had Mike's tool. I bought one from him and I've never regretted that purchase. Now, I remove and clean the check valve in every lantern that I buy.
