Make a Porsche tool 9596 ?

I can see the advantage of this tool and would like to make one but I can't find any images or specs on the net. In Bentley it looks like an aluminum plate with 3 holes drilled in it. Is that it, or is there something else involved?

A plate with three holes in it does not look a whole lot like the automatic transmission dis-assembly tool referenced. I think you are looking for a cam locking tool for timing the engine valves, and unless you have a machine shop and the tool dimensions, or a whole lot of time AND are good with a file just buy one. I tried making one from aluminum and found the shape and tolerances merit buying one. It's not just a flat plate. The one I bought fits into the cams one way with very little tolerance. Over the range of less than a degree of camshaft rotation for either cam it goes from fitting with no wiggle room to not fitting at all. If you want the cams timed dead on, and you do, I found the best way for me was to buy the tool.

No, Jamesp, The 9596 tool was the one that I wanted the image for. The drawing in the Bentley only shows it installed (where it looks like a flat plate with holes) and on can't see the business side of the tool. Thanks for your comments though.

The only thing this tool does is prevent you from dropping the torque converter bolts into the bell housing when reinstalling the trans. While a nice touch, it is not really needed if you just exercise care and don't drop the bolts........
