CORSE DYNAMICS Life Saving Oil Filter Wrench: Ducati OEM Filter
Corse Dynamics offers an oil filter wrench which works quite well, but we still have customers that insist on using the good ole screwdriver method. If the screw driver hole tears open because the filter is too tight the entire filter falls to pieces leaving the top still connected to the motor. We have heard of failed attempts to remove the rest with: pliers, shears, vice grips, strap wrench, channel locks, or heat typically without any success.
This tool is the solution, it is constructed of aluminum in order to keep the cost affordable, this works but it is not for everyday industrial use. It is designed to get you out of the pinch and save you hours of unnecessary anger and frustration. We have tested this, used this, and are happy with it. We weren’t planning on making them, but it is such a valuable tool for certain situations that we have decided to release it to the public.
1/2" drive provision allowing use of the longest torque wrench in your tool box for leverage.

Let me get right to the point. When the description for this item says "not for industrial use", it really means "1 time use only". Whatever grade aluminum that was made out of is complete crap. This item did get my stuck oil filter off, however there are a few issues with this item.
1) The aluminum made with this is way too soft. I suspect they used alloy 1001 or 3003 instead of something stronger like 6061 or 7075. All 6 prongs are already bent to the right and the 1/2" drive hole is pretty much marred from square to oval-ish
2) When you stick the 1/2" drive thru the hole, it will hit the dead center screw on part for the filter which results in the 6 prongs not being able to fit snugly into the 6 holes in the canister. As a result, you have to just barely get your half in drive thru the hole.
