This was a great just because I can build! No real reason behind this project just wqntes to see if I could pull it off. Using my homemade slot mortiser I made a couple cool jig that can thread any size wood dowel and thread a corisponding nut.. super fun build I always love a challenge. Check out the video link below for full details..

Thanks everyone. Cant stop playing with it! Lol
Topmax- not sure what your asking.. if you mean the basic pitch diameter I try to keep it at .7608inches for the 7/8th inch dia screws I control that by carefully setting the depth of my cutter head for the threads.if your talking about thread count that is accoplished with a threaded rod that runs the length of the jig with a simple gear reduction system.. hope I answered you question..

Thanks, I thought the rods I saw on the jig would be too fine for the thread count without a reducer. I didn’t see how that was accomplished in the video.

It looks like the threads are left hand. Is there a special reason for that?
