Nice job on the socket weld.  Ive seen some that were old spark plug sockets that were ground out to form the fingers.  I would think your welded socket would be stronger.  How about the pointed piece, what is it a piston stop?  Im a rope guy, Ive **** too many pistons with the stops especially when on an angle.

Yes piston stop. Didn't need much pressure to break the clutch loose. I never thought of rope, ill do that for sure if I'm putting to much pressure on it.

Simple and effective, all that's needed.
I'll pass on the piston stop,,, much easier to use a rattle gun (gently)and safer on pistons.
Cordless 18V rattle guns have become the normal tool in our saw arenas for quick sprocket changes between events.
Starter rope will work as well, but can be cut by the exhaust port if not a bit careful.

Nice tool AL! You can use rope or a plastic piston stop a couple of bucks at the local Stihl dealer

Maybe a piece of 3/8 fuel line over the steel would help soften the pressure point on the piston.

I like that idea of welding pieces on to a socket for a clutch tool.  I am one of those guys that has ground away on old sockets to form the fingers needed to fit the clutch.   

As far as the piston stop goes, I never use one.   I always use an 3/8ths impact gun and leave the plug in.   Never fails and it is so easy.
