« Part 5: Version 2 - all the pieces... Part 6 of Building my wooden Screw series Part 7: Getting the guide nut ready... »

The process of creating the nut that will become the guide for the screw. I’ve got my nice long tap already into the guide, which gets pulled through the “nut”. I’ve got clamps to hold the nut block to the guide block, which is clamped down on my 1/2 of my glued up bench top. To start, you have the blade barely sticking out and start cranking it in, making sure that any of the scrapings fall off before you reverse it back. Once out, you advance the blade just a bit and continue the process until you get deep enough.

Here is a shot of the opening where the blade exits out allowing all the scrapping to fall off or get cleaned off by you.

Eventually you will get the blade advanced out far enough to get this – a NUT!

Now onward towards building the screw!
