Pliers Pivot

Pivot for slip-joint pliers. The original couldn’t be tightened completely without locking the pliers. I got tired of the nut coming loose, so I made a replacement that could be tightened completely and still allow the jaws to move. After several years of use, the threads stripped. It was made out of mild steel. I had to make a new one, so I used a broken stud. I figure that is as good a metal as any to make a fastener out of. My camera lost all the pictures of the turning operation, but there is nothing special about this particular project. Pictures will begin at the milling operation and follow into the second turning operation.
