In Part Three of the Tap and Screw Jig Tutorial series I finish the work on the guide block for the Tap my friend Chris Legendre designed. 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.
