In the latest video I complete all the work on the Tap my buddy Chris Legendre designed. 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.
