Hi Bob.  Are you going to drill holes for a 'tommy bar'?  The die holders were one of my first projects and they have been invaluable (I had to make no less than 3 different sizes for my ACE-Hanson set and my Harbor Freight die sets).

Regards, Al

Nice work! And a rare example of where a machinist's screw jack would be useful. But t-slot hardware works just as well, as you discovered.

A tommy bar is a must. I don't have one on my die holder and I need one with bigger diameter threads.

Tyler, nice catch on the machinist jack.  If there was ever a perfect application for one this is a prime example, used to support an extended object for horizontal drilling.
