Hi Guys

Anyone know where I can buy one of these (other than Jessem: shipping was double the price of the part)

Thanks

Mark

Figure out thread size buy a bolt and cut it down. Cost should be around .30 cents and what ever the drive cost you, probably more then double the cost of the part.

Thanks Bob

I did actually think of that, but don’t I need a smooth sleeve to cover the bolt, so the head doesn’t stick out? (never used a starter pin before: just contemplating my first job that uses a pattern bit).

Hardware store is 1 mile away and i’m thre all the time!

A block clamped or screwed to the top can serve the same purpose as the pin. All you need is a place to rest the work as you engage the bit.

You could also sleeve the bolt mentioned above with brass, PVC, or copper tube, or even vinyl hose, available elsewhere in the same hardware store.

No, you cut the head off.

If you can find one with the right thread, get a shoulder bolt and grind/cut the head off.

Or tap threads into the hole and use the shoulder bolt as is.
