Threaded insert jig [and blog]

See the HOW TO MAKE A THREADED INSERT JIG blog.

I thought it might come in handy for some of you.

Best thoughts,

Nice jig Mafe and well made. I read the entire story on your blog also.

Does the wing nut big enough to apply required tork to thread the insert? I think I would use a bolt instead of a threaded rod and use a wrench or a ratchet to thread the insert.

Thanks for posting.

Best,

Serge

Brilliant idea, Mafe. Wish I’d made one of these for putiing the inserts into my latest project. It would have been a lot easier and more accurate. Well done. Thanks for sharing.

Hi guys, there are some fine suggestions on the HOW TO now, from some of the guys, so make sure to look there.

Mafe:

This DEFINETLY belongs in “Projects” and a “Blog” is good also. So you covered BOTH bases Very Well!!

Probably going to make one of these myself considering my usual way is to drill the appropriate size hole, give it a wee whack with a Hammer, straight blade Screwdriver, and it’s in! (MOST times …LOL..). Actually depending on the use, I usually give the threads a coat of White Glue, and if it’s warranted, it I’ll mix up some Epoxy and that Sucker ain’t never coming out!!

Actually last Summer I did a ”Landfill Save” on a Cast Iron Bench that I “Stole” from a Neighbours Garbage. I had to install 20 of these in ALL of the ENDS of the 3/4” Thick x 4” Wide, Back & Seat Boards. They had to EXACTLY Match the Pre Drilled Holes in the 2 Cast Iron Side Pieces. I used the “Wee Whack” process. ...LOL…Worked okay, with just a little coxing. HUMMMM? Matbe I should “Post” that????

Thanks for Posting!

Hi again Rick,
As I just wrote, I’m happy for a man that have the guts to come back, especially with a pipe of peace tobacco – and I smoke it with big pleasure with you.
Thank you also for the nice words.
It’s a clever idea to use glue on the thread, so it will glide better and then stick, this advise I will use in the future.
Thank you,
Rick

And we can now make a new list for the priority:
1. The smell of peace tobacco at mid day.
2. Two adult men fighting ower what to post where, on a site full of love and wood.
3. The smell of napalm in the morning.
Big smile,
Mads

- Ups I forgot the smell of fresh wood, from a sharp and smooth running hand plane – this perhaps comes first!

Mafe:

Yes! I also derived Pleasure from “Smoking with you”. The Tobbacco was Very Sweet.

I can only Second your “New List For The Priority”, with the possibble exception of “napalm in the morning” ...LOL… BUT! It was a Great Movie!

However, to be in an Environment such as he was and the Emotional/Psychological Trauma he and all others must go through is NOT something I can even imagine. i.e “I Have Not Walked In His Shoes” therefore I may not judge.

It’s probably a lot more rational (in that situation) than “I HATE NAPALM!!”

Great idea…now on my list to build…if you don’t mind, I am going to try a hex head bolt instead of the wingnut, that way I can use nut drivers, sockets or an impact driver to place the threaded inserts…
