I was using my old thread die holder the other day and wanted to show it to you. When you're making U-bolts you can't get a conventional die handle to turn past the other leg of the U-bolt so you need an extension so I made a pipe holder. There's an old half inch drive socket welded in one end and a piece of square tubing welded in the depth of the die in the other end. I bored a hole in the side of the pipe near the bottom, tapped it and threaded a sharpened bolt into it that will go right into the little countersunk hole in the side of the die.
Anyhow, I have two different sizes of these gizmos as I have two different sizes of dies in my set.
