This tool is sort of on the fringe of this newsgroup, but I never saw it before today.
(Amazon.com product link shortened)It's gotta be doable for (much?) less than $50. You can treat it as a "Guess what it's for" post! : ) I thought it would nicely accessorize a tap and die set. I sought to find a tap and die set at my local Sears "going out of business" sale, which my wife told me about yesterday... but I could see I was late to the party. It felt like a funeral at the store...I'll miss it. I couldn't help but think of happier times (concrete memories of this, that, and the other)...details omitted.
