bobski 05-05-2013 01:49 PM

how does it work?

not a nut buster, the bolt is flat.

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.........

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

unfortunatley, the lathe was sold 8 years ago. dang. scrap metal.
