Studded Knobs

Adding studded knobs Adding a studded knob to a jig makes it easier to use. But longer length studded knobs aren't available, so I make my own with a regular plastic knob handle, a carriage bolt, and a couple of nuts.

Here's how: Just thread two nuts onto the bolt. Then screw on the knob and lock it in place with one of the nuts. Now cut off the head of the carriage bolt and remove the second nut to clean up the threads at the end.
