Something else I found while sorting stuff out.
The first one was almost done when I put it away God knows how long ago, and I had to use little bitty hand files to make the hole in the middle.
Like you can’t tell.
No handles on the files either, my hands are sore now.
It works though.
This next one was the reason I made that one in the first place. It was a down and dirty quick solution to hold a needle dick bug fucker of a tap on some project I was working on at the time.
Pretty simple really, just buy a barrel nut and two corresponding bolts, drill a hole in the middle of the nut big enough for the end of the tap, thread two bolts in and pinch the flats on the end of the tap.
I have a small tap wrench but the tap I was using at the time was too small for it even.
I’m talking dinky.
The one in the pictures is just one I dug out of my tool box.
It worked so I kept it around and it wound up in a box full of crap when I scraped a bunch of shit off the top of my work bench to make some room.
I have several little boxes and cans full of stuff that I have scraped off my work bench over time like that. It is a pain in the ass going through them because most of it is just junk but every once in a while a little something catches the light just right and lets off a little sparkle.
