They didn't show up because I forgot to add them. :oops: Here they are. :)

Nicely done.
Spiffy hunting vehicle. Reminds me of a couple of stories by Patrick McManus.

JackF: I got a notice from the McManus Index that Pat McManus died recently at 84. Loved all his books.

Ok. This thread has gone on long enough and wandered enough that I can no longer resist the urge to offer an answer to the question in the title.

A screwdriver.

JackF; Thanks for letting me practice on your 30tpi screws. I had occasion to make another 30tpi for a Lyman 310 Tong Tool expander die. I didn't have to search for how to do it because of your request. Oddly this one was a .400x30-2A. Glad I don't have to make the nut.
Regards,
