    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.
