    Handy Homemade Machine Screw and Bolt Holder

    I am lucky enough to get the pick of the scrap from a local auto repairs garage, and a very regular item is the bottom front suspension bush mounting from various VW/Audi models. It is more cost efficient for the garage to replace the entire bush and alloy housing rather than having to extract the rubber bush itself, with the result that I get these complete :-

    Well, I just HAD to make something useful out of one of these so I came up with a Machine Screw and Bolt Holder for use in the vice, and an indispensible, effective and handy little tool it has proven to be, and VERY simply made to boot ! :-

    I'll have to make one of these(probably more) and a blank for odd sized shafts/tubes. Thanks for the idea as I was just sitting here trying to think of how to hold some old 303British military rounds to drill out the primer pockets for shotgun primers. This will be a go to for many projects.
