So, Helping my guitar player put together his steel shop building. It literally requires thousands of nuts and bolts to put it together.

The nuts are hard to grab and hold with gloves, and with your bare fingers they quickly tear up your skin as you try and get them finger tight.

So I printed up a bunch of nut holders for all the guys working on it. Just a very quick model in sketchup and print, but they proved to be very popular, lol.

I even made it so the other side would take a 3/8" socket driver attachment. Not that you could put much torque on it, but just to spin things up to finger tight.
