I designed this key turner especial for people that have arthirits or have a hard time turning keys. It's a simple design made of wood band it helps tremendously in reducing the amount of torque needed to turn a key along with providing a greater surface area to hold on to.
If there is anything that i could fix please tell me. this is my first instructable.
Step 1: Materials Needed
- .75 x 1.5 x 2.25 in.
- .75 x .5 x 1.5 in.
- .75 x .75 x 4 in.
(If you already have these peices you can skip to step 6, if not i will show you how I cut them out from a peice of wood that is 1.5 x 1.5 x 24 )
(Try to get the a hard wood that doesn't split easily down the grain)
As for the actual tools, you will need:
- A ruler
- A pen
- C clamps (optional)
- A saw (hand held, table, or band saw)
- Grinding sticks and/or sandpaper (optional)
- A drill
- A wood 3/32 inch drill bit
- Screws that can be 1" or 1 1/4"
- Wood glue (optional)
Step 2: Cutting into the basic peices
2. Measure out 1.5 inches, 2.25 inches, and then 4 inches (each measurment starts at the end of the other)
Step 3: The First Cut
Then draw a strait line separating the wood into two equal parts and cut
(The pen marks should be drrwan on the freashly cut surface or the one on the opposite side )
