Hi wall, da word. also can be used as nut buster........ouch.........

bobski 05-05-2013 02:49 PM

how does it work?


not a nut buster, the bolt is flat.

willshoum 05-05-2013 04:48 PM

Used as nut buster, the screw is tightened against a small flat against the nut that has been stripped. Then with a hammer slowly beat the nut back and forth till it breaks free...........Hammer opposite the screw part.........

no, nut busters have a wedge on the part thats tightened.

Commonly a lathe dog is used when turning a shaft (like a gun barrel) between centers. The lathe dog makes the shaft turn.
