I thought I would share with everyone how I made my metal toe spikes in minutes. You will need
1. (1) Aluminum Rod
2. Metal pencil sharpener (the one with the small hole and bigger hole the big side will be the only side used.)
5. Hacksaw or Dremel with cutting wheel
Secure your pencil sharpener in your vice.
Test fit your aluminum rod in the sharpener to ensure you have the proper fit.
Cut 4 pieces of your rod and ensure the end is uniform and flat. This step is super important because it will make sure all the spikes are uniform. Mount your first piece in your drill.
Slowly turn your pieces in the sharpener, be sure you keep the drill straight and level and sharpen to your desired tip. x4
Done! Now you have 4 toe spikes cheap fast and easy! I changed blades after the first two spikes were sharp.
