Good day

As you noticed, I’m using many knobs for my jigs and I made them in different methods until, one morning, after the 3rd coffee kicked in, I realized that I’m “wasting time and money” for something so simple…that I’m not going to put in the living room…

So I made them simple but, during the process, I thought, “How said that a knob must be round…actually, it’s just a lever to turn and tight a nut or bolt”...so I made it even simpler.

I stopped using bolts because it’s much cheaper to buy Threaded Rod and cut it to the required dimension and from one, I can make many “bolts” and don’t have to run to the shop for every bolt length.

So, here are my latest knobs

Best Regards
niki

I think Niki needs his own show…maybe something like This Old Woodworker? Of course it would be broadcast on PBS and LJTV.

Great job Niki.
