Next I created the guide block for the tap (for the second time) in this picture you can see the block with a 2” hole and my paper template laying on top. The black on the metal is the part that will be used to guide the tap and create the nut. The wood I used was from an old shelf that I build when I was in high school – birch. In front is the LONG tap that I created out of popular. Yes, I know, not the greatest wood to use in creating my wooden screw jigs. On the right side of the tap, was my first version that didn’t work, so I removed that old guide part so I could do a second attempt. At this point I cut the slot in the tap to fit into the guide block.

EDIT: This should be the second part to the Blog
