« Part 2: Starting the Tap Part 3 of Tap and Screw Jig Tutorial series Part 4: Finishing the Tap »

Hello.

In Part Three of the Tap and Screw Jig Tutorial series I finish the work on the guide block for the Tap. I start by laying out and cutting the metal plate which is inserted into the guide block to guide the dowel through the Tap. After work on the metal plate is done I attach two wooden blocks to create the clearance for the blade as it exists the Tap.

The second video is designed to help those who may be confused about laying out the thread pattern on the paper that wraps around the dowel of the Tap.

Carter, the videos don’t seem to come up. I have really been looking forward to this next installment. Waiting with bait on my breath. :)

As usual you have been very careful to bring us great new ideas that work.

Sorry about that, not sure why the videos didn’t work. I re-did the embeding and it looks like it works now.

Many thanks to you Carter for guiding us through an ingenious way to make wooden bench screws.
Your jigs work very well.
I will try posting some photos of my work using your technique

Carter,

You are doing a FANTASTIC job of documenting your procedure!

I remember Roy Underhill doing a show on doing this a long time ago…
... you filled in some of the Blanks which made it a lot more clearer!

Thank you very much!

Super job!

It’s nice to know how one can make the jigs required to make Screws & Nuts any Large size one desires without spending an arm & a leg on it!
