The purpose for this report is to outline the design process for an oil filter remover/installer intended to be used with a ratcheting socket wrench. The goal of this project was to design an attachment for a socket wrench that could be used to remove or install oil filters in a vehicle. This report will discuss design criteria for the new design, a few current designs for similar tools and their problem areas, initial design ideas, the design process of the chosen design, and the prototype building and testing for the project.
