You could always make one, here's a humorous, entertaining but very useful video on the subject, https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=12&v=jAawhg6JtyY

These are the "other half" of what I have....seems to be one or two at about every garage sale....when they have "TOOLS!"  for sale...
   
Good thing they usually put these on a table...otherwise, I'd be tripping over the dang things Winkgrin

Before cordless drills I used my Yankee  for screwing hinges into the door and jamb. I removed the spring when I was warned that the spring action could be dangerous when installing mirrors and such.  I haven't seen the spring in 50+ years.
