Topic tags/keywords: jig parts

I figure that most of you already know about this, but just to make sure:

I found a place that sells knobs for socket head cap screws and hex head cap screws really cheap (like 11 cents a piece for the small ones).

Shipping was $7.25 so I kept increasing my order till it went to $8 then removed my last increase.

I got 95 knobs for just under $31 dollars. That should last me awhile!

Thanks. I was paying a buck for round nobs but they included the bolt. It was a nice knob and I got them from McMaster Carr. However, I sure check on these.

I bought a bunch of golf balls at the local flea market and drill a hole, use a threaded insert and there you have it. A nice solid knob for many uses.
