    I thought I'd share my how-to:

    1) Measure nut and figure out dimensions.
    2) Yoink appropriate size socket from toolbox at work.
    3) Use solidworks on company time to make a quick print. Throw in ridiculous tolerances for haha's.
    4) Give print and socket to Ed in the machine shop at work.
    5) Get socket back in a couple days.
    6) Buy 6-pack of beer for Ed.

    awesome!

    You should have had him run 5 so you could sell the others to make up for your pack of beer you had to give him.

    haha... nice Matt. I hope Ed didn't actually try to hold that on the tooth width.

    And +1 for using work resources, although most of the stuff here I have to do myself. Used the manual lathe last week, going to charge my shock with nitrogen this afternoon.

    I'm jealous of you guys who are allowed to use the machines at work. Our shop is worth millions and I'm not allow out of the yellow lines even though I'm 30 days from having a machinist cert.
