Jig Knob Tips / Astuces pour boutons de gabarits

Que faites-vous lorsque la tige d’un bouton de gabarit est trop longue ? Vous la coupez avec une scie à métaux, bien entendu.

What do you do when the threaded stem of a jig knob is too long ? You cut it with hacksaw, of course.

Compte tenu que la plupart des gabarits ne sont pas permanents, ne coupez plus les tiges. Coupez et percez un goujon (tourillons) pour couvrir ou combler la partie trop longue.

Because most of jigs are not permanent, don’t cut the stems anymore. Cut and drill a dowel to cover or fill the too long part.

Plus tard, lorsque vous aurez besoin d’un long bouton, vous pourrez le reprendre.

Later, when you will need a longer knob, you’ll be able to take it back.

En passant, j’ai acquis cette semaine ces boutons en liquidation pour 1$ cdn chacun. Toutefois cet établissement n’offre la livraison qu’au Canada et aux États-Unis. Gardez les yeux ouverts !

J’ai hâte de réaliser un autre gabarit maison !

By the way, this week I acquired those clearance knobs for $1 cdn each. However, this store delivers only in Canada and United States. Keep your eyes open !

I can’t wait to come up with another homemade jig !

    I have a collection of knobs I bought on sale at Woodpeckers website that eliminate all these problems. Instead of having the bolt or washer as part of the knob there is a press-fit indentation that accepts 1/4 20 hardware. I can set up a knob with one length bolt and when my needs change, remove that bolt and insert another bolt or a nut. Woodpeckers items are often over designed and expensive, but these items are a good buy.

      Steve, those are great too. I saw them but never gave it a try. Usually I like to make my own. Thanks for sharing.

      Best,

    A couple of good tips Serge. Using the dowel spacer is easier than trying to cut it with a hacksaw. And the threads are easy to get hacked up, as the saying goes. Unfortunately I don’t have a Busy Bee near me and the shipping cost makes them not so cheap. Thanks for the tip!

      Mark,
      I bought for $100, including a nice set of 3 ring turning tools (think half price – $60) and got free shipping, as usual. The closest store and the warehouse are in Ontario.

      Best,
      Serge
