    I'd be surprised if that "pin vise" could grip anything other than the size of the drilled hole.
    Especially with the minimal clamping supplied by the "nut".

    Home made pin vise.

    Quick knock up when a special size pin vise is needed. I liked the heat shrink tubing for the handle.

    It's not perfect, but then again, I've never seen an improvised tool that was. Well, except my ex-wife claimed that a Butter Knife was the perfect tool. She said you could hit things with it, cut things with it, spread soft things with it, and drive & remove screws. I couldn't see it that way. I wonder if that was what drove us apart?

    Obviously you had led a rather sheltered life up till then. She was the
    Mrs Fix-it of the relationship then? You were still acquiring "Roundtuits"?
