Didn't want to sacrifice one of my good HF sockets ya know...

Anyway, I took a 12 pt. Crapsman and pointed it in the right direction in the mill, and just started milling out one of the points opposite to the other, And it works and can be discarded to the scrap bend when I'm done, although I prolly could have cut this out with the die grinder much easier and quicker.

I can hopefully get this BC out of my shop and my way...

I have only a couple more projects to finish up and get back to the owners
then I can really set and rest awhile. before my next mid-evil bloodletting

This is mostly for future reference. At work we have built many spanner sockets. Almost always we have to fit over a shaft so we find an appropriate sized pipe and weld pieces of key stock to it for the drive. Quite a few of our "sockets" have a large nut welded to them rather than sacrifice a good socket.
The person who said "no guts no glory" is probably dead.
There is no such thing as too much ammo.....the real problem is a target deficency.
