In the latest video I complete all the work on the Tap. At this point in the series you should have all the knowledge you need to make wooden nuts of whatever size you want. I begin the video by explaining how to locate the mortise for the blade. I continue by showing the entire process involved in making the blade: shaping, hardening, and tempering. I then cut the mortise for the blade and wedge, fit the wedge, and make the “chip clear out” groove in front of the blade.
After this video I will start work on the screw jig (the tool used for making wooden screws).
PS// If anybody uses this information to make their own nuts, I would be glad to hear about it or see some pictures of your work.
