Threaded insert jig – HOW TO MAKE
How to get the dam thing straight in!
Ok, not a big problem, but a problem!
Idea! A jig so I can control the angel is 90 degree.
Solution a pice of scrap wood, some thread in a ‘nice’ size, and ofcourse the same thread as the inserts inside.
Draw up a hole that fits, the hight of the threathet insert and some extra for a nut.
Putting the pieces together.
Start with a wing nut, then a nut to hold the wing nut in place – then a washer, and stick it through the wood from the top – not put on a washer, then two nuts and leave enought threath free to mount in the threathed insert while mounting.
Hope it can be usefull, it helped me.
