The know has been saturated in BLO.
Overly complicated but I need one setup to both clamp an iron frame to wood and hold the knob.
The thread-sert will be glued into the wood base.
The brass washer clamps the iron via a ¼”/20 shaft. It is tightened with a 7mm wrench (I don’t have a english wrench that small).
The other end of the shaft is threaded #12/20 so I can use a Stanley brass nut.
- Nipple spear take 2. Got smart and copied the commercial version. Learned a few things about work holding, the bulbous end fits both a collet and a center. On a manual lathe you flip it couple of times. Two tapers.Spoke spear - for digging nipples out of a puddle of linseed oil and putting them in a deep(ish) dish rim socket. Serrations really help retain the nipple. No idea of the angle, just stuck a shim under the front of the spinner and ground away.
