Crankshaft Holder Tool Repair

We had crankshaft holder tool that broke at the shop. The head/grip came completly off. Seeing how we need the tool on a regular basis, instead of ordering a new one, let's fit it.

I used my mill to clean up the rough break on both the tooth end and the grip end of the tool. I then drilled a hole small enough to tap out threads. Using a short piece of threaded M5 stock, mated both ends together.

Good as new!
