Great suggestions. The speed and accuracy that this little jig offers is pretty cool. I should have built something like this a long time ago. Thanks for your comments.
Threaded Rod Cutting StationView Instructable »
Hi Bill. I just bought the threaded rod at the local hardware store, nothing fancy. Seemed plenty straight for this project. The modified bearing press is handy for stuff like this. Best of luck.
Hi Bill. Thanks for your comments. I haven't tried other thread sizes, the 8tpi just matched a lot of stuff I had around so I stuck with that. It seemed pretty forgiving due to the larger size but with some modifications I'm sure smaller threads could be used. I don't have any other photos of the press. It's been a while since I tinkered with the design but it was a lot of fun to build and play with. Best of luck.
Thank you. This was a pretty much on-the-fly kind of build. A lot of late nights just playing with sketches and ideas. A lot of trial and error. Once I finished it and played around with some cutting I did re-design it to hold a regular sized router. This opened up lots of possibilities. Then I made a whole bunch of projects with the machine and had a blast working with it. There are many projects on my YouTube channel with it in action at drez20001. Building it was not overly difficult, it just took time and patience. Thanks again for your comments.
