    Ingenious design, beautiful execution.

    More than a hundred bucks, I believe I'll keep my money and make one.

    It is one of those days. I don't know how it did that. Yes it was a response to IAMSatisfied. I would rather have s beautiful tool that is a lot more than a shear, as far as a shear, a pair of electrical wire pliers have a shear and cutters and strippers for a hole lot less.
    Sorry

    This is a great design and so well thought out, especially the hex bit feature.

    The hex bit reminds me of, in a different domain, the screw chuck designed by the Oneway brand, in the woodturning area.
    It s an mt2 shaft holding an hex bit as well, covered by a kind of screwed cap, allowing to use any wood screw for holding the workpiece, like woodworm screws.

    Christophe,
    Similar concept but appears to be utilized in the woodworking environment to hold small parts.
    The device I presented was a merging of several work-holding methods scattered around the net.
    See the attached examples:

    Once again I would like to thank everyone for all the positive input.

    Yes Shelly, it's clear, I really like your design, and I was wondering if I could make a kind of "2 in one" that would serve for both usages, because I can have the need for both of the use cases.

    Nice post, I vote for it !
