An Easy Knurled Knob with a hidden Tee Nut
- I came up with an easy way to make a knurled knob with a hidden "tee"
nut the other night I thought I'd share. I am making my lady a
tapesty loom, with rollers on it. The knob is used to tighten the
roller against the support and lock it in place. It could also be
used on chairs or anything else that uses a hanger bolt. This one is
designed for a 1/4"-20 tee nut and a 2" knob.
I made two of them in about 20 minutes. The only step I left out is
that I routed the edges with a 3/8" roundover bit when I was done to
take the sharp edges off the knob. This can just as easily be done
I came up with this for those times when you are using a nut and bolt
combination, but want to hide it.
Its on my Photo Page under Knob Instructions There's a photo of one
of the knobs I made as well. I still have to put in the 3/4" plug
that hides the nut, but you get the idea.
Yours in sawdust,
