Seams as though were always needing a different tool of some kind, even myself after being a tool and die maker for 43 years, you would think by now I would have every tool it would take to do anything, Well I do, The tools I make now are just to make the job I'm working on just as easy as I possibly can, It's not that I need the tool I just want it, So I make whatever I need no matter how simple the job I'll still make a tool to make it go easier, even if I'll only use it once, I guess this is what you call a tool nut.
This tool is just another angle plate, nothing spectacular just an angle plate, I have angle plates of all sizes, but I needed an angle plate that was in between two sizes that I had, one plate I had measured 1.250" X 1.250" X 1.250" the other measured 3" X 3" X 3" this plate measures 2" X 2.500" X 3.000".
Below are some photos of the finished plate along with a drawing showing how it was made.
As always thanks for looking
And happy machining
