Makeshift nut driver

I was taking apart an IBM keyboard from 1991 for restoration when I hit a snag. Instead of regular screws, the case was held together by hex head screws. I didn't have a socket long or small enough to fit in the hole and reach the screw. I needed a specific nutdriver, but I prefer not to buy tools that I'd rarely use again in the future. So I fabricated a tool out of a spare bolt.

I took a bunch of extra pictures this time because I wanted to test out a new 35mm macro lens that I got for my camera.
