Default Golf Ball Knobs

I built a taper jig for my table saw and needed a couple knobs for the hold downs as I didnít want to use wing nuts. I had previously used golf balls for handles on my c clamps and thought it might work as a knob on the toilet bolts on the hold downs. I drilled a 5/16 hole through a golf ball and squeezed a ľ t-nut in the ball with a vise. It worked well and is easier to use then some manufactured knobs and you donít have the expense and trouble obtaining manufactured knobs. I painted them black and they look as good as manufactured knobs. Another life for those worn out golf balls.
