    Ad-hoc reloading die holder

    Pulled two pieces of channel strut out of a scrap bin. The backside had round 1/4" holes, unlike the usual slotted holes. Got my stepper-drill out and reamed them to 1" and smoothed everything with a file. These were kinda crusty so I had to use a wire wheel and went to town on them. My 3" wire wheel is now a 1" wire wheel, but I got to bare metal. After the second coat of red I realized I wouldn't have enough paint to finish them both, but I did have a can of blue. Anyway, cheap, easy to fab and hardly takes up any room at all.
