    Knobs - easy fast and cheap

    Good day

    As you noticed, I'm using many knobs for my jigs and I made them in many 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.

    To the pics....

    Best Regards

    Niki: I haven't said so before but thanks for all the effort you put into sharing your "photo tutorials". While I won't necessarily use each idea of yours I have seen, some are seemingly quite useful, plus they can spark additional ideas.

    Many thanks.

    Thanks for the great tutorials. I am going to put this one to use right away.
    I noticed your sanding block in a few of the photos. Is this one of your design? I would be interested in seeing it in more detail. Thanks again,
