      Used that approach with 727 to block bolts. had a U joint in there too. Forget which car it was on.

        It is for that application, I wish I had short sockets with the U joint attached. The joints that flop around really aggravate me..............................MO

          As I recall it did take a lot of patience to get the socket on the bolt due to the U joint flop.

          I tape the flex joint with electrical tape. It still flexes, but doesn't flop all over. I've also used heat shrink wrap, but doesn't last as long.:thumbsup:

            Paper in the socket to hold the bolt in place also works

              Can't beat the u-joints. Must have in every tool box.

                I like these ball joint, impact sockets. They come in a deep socket also.

                  I ran across this fine piece the other day from my grandfather's collection.
                  It still has his initial's scratched in it.

                      I came across this video about making an anvil. It's kinda long but one can skip forward to get the picture.
                      It is interesting that it was even done. I have fabricated lots of big and heavy things and this brings a smile to me. (I can feel the effort at every point)
                      Why not make it entirely out of weld rod?:realcrazy:

                        Chekov certainly went through a lot of work to save himself a few hundred bucks.

                        Yep, most anvils go for $1.00 per pound.
