Introduction: Bolt Bracelet
Made from M6 x 16mm stainless hex head bolts and some M6 stainless nuts
You will require at least 10 bolts, depending on your wrist size.
Drill & drill bits (Pillar drill recommended)
Hammer & centre punch
Step 1: Drill the Holes in Bolts
Centre punch all the bolts in the middle of the threaded end.
Drilled out using a 3mm drill bit with plenty of cutting fluid.
Step 2: Clasp
Weld two nuts on the head of a bolt. I used another bolt to wind the nuts together straight and so the threads align properly. Make sure you can wind a bolt down both nuts.
I also cut the threads back in half on the bolt.
Another bolt will have a nut on as a locking nut.
Step 3: String
Tie a knot on one end and slide the Female part of the clasp on first, nut side first.
Slide all the bolts on and tie a knot the other end.
Step 4: Done
The bolt should freely spin and tighten up into the nuts. Use the locking nut to help stop the bolt coming loose.
