I think you have just given the secret away! But thinking about it more, maybe you haven’t. I’m confused!

You shouldn’t get nuts about the nut, the secret lieth there not. Hope your wife doesn’t mind you using her best kitchenware :-)

Cool. I’ve made a couple of these, but not with the nut in the middle. Adds another level of “What the Heck”

Every time I see one of these, I think to myself that I have to make one. Then I spend an hour trying to figure out where I put the secret formula, get lost in thinking about a different project, and then it never happens. Now here we go again.

Thanks for all the kind comments.

Along with a cup of boiling coffee, the secret will be kept safe :-)

Well at least the water had to boiled to make the coffee.

I hope the nut spins freely otherwise people will assume the rod is cut in half. It will add an element of surprise if they assume this just to spin the nut and notice that the bolt has not been cut.
Nice touch.

The nut does indeed spin freely on a solid bolt.
