    my hydraulic coupler pressure relief tool

    If you have ever taken the fel off and left it parked in the sun while you are mowing or forget to depressurize it, you know it can be a PITA to get the fel male coupler hooked back up. I had a set of QD couplers that would drip, so I replace the set with new ones to fix the drip. I threw the old ones in a spare parts box and forgot about them till today. I grabbed the female end and drilled out its guts and a couple of holes in the body. I then welded a nut on one end so I could run a bolt down to the end and release the pressure on the male end. I then welded some round stock on the bolt and QD body to get something to hold on to. Please forgive the crappy welds, I forgot to turn the gas on at first.

    Great idea! Once, I tried slightly unscrewing the fitting to bleed off the excess pressure. It worked, but it also blew out a chunk of the o-ring
