accidental clamp

I made this the other day for a different reason, but found it is good for clamping small parts for welding.

Reason I made it. about once a year I need to replace the rubber blades on my snow thrower. To install the end bolts you have to flex the rubber blade to get the bolt far enough in to get the nut on then turn the bolt to get it to thread on all in a tight space. The point on the tool fits into a small hole in the head of the bolt allowing it to be clamped and still turn. will find out if the plan works next time I change the blades.

I can't seem to add two photos so I will make a second post
