comment What type of bolt has a shoulder portion above and unthreaded region below threads?
This will get the beginning of the thread between the bolt head and the smoothed part slightly damaged. To prevent that you drive a nut onto the thread and once grinding is complete you drive the nut away and it kind of restores the thread - see this diy.stackexchange.com/q/12465/807 for more details.

That's a neat thing, even better than a needle file holder.

comment How to drill a minute hole on a wooden pendant without a drill?
@BigHomie: That's a drill chuck detached from a drill but it can be used for this task. The downside is it can be relatively expensive and is of little use outside of this specific task.

@BigHomie: One argument against buying a drill is that it takes up some space for storage. Many people don't like "clutter" which they call anything they don't need on a daily basis.
