Default Knobs ~~~Bobj3

Hello Bob,
While ambling threw various post, I came across your post on making knobs. in one of the "Click-ons" below your post, you showed a diagram for a pattern for one of these knobs (green background, tried to copy it and post it here, wont copy) of drill locations. My question did you show the dimensions to that pattern anywhere ??

Hi John

Sorry but no I didn't

"I use a small clock face and/or a compasses to get the hole setup of the jig but aging it can be what you want to use." to fit your hand size, I used the 2 1/4" diam. for the normal size hand.

Ok,, got'cha,

Thanks for the advice. I could see where once the pattern is set up, a person could use a awl to set the drilling points into the material for the next knob and the next,,,,,,,,all from a hard copy of your pattern. Drill a hanging hole in one of the ends, to be taken down when needed.

Hi Bob....I just looked over the pictures you linked to and have a question. Is that sanding arbor installed in your table router? I have a couple of sanding arbors but am afraid to use them with my router due to the suggested RPM limitation on the arbor package. If it is a special high speed arbor where can I get one?

Thanks, Ken

Hi Bob,

Just wondering why you remove the barbs from the t-nuts.
Is it so the barbs will not split the knob?

Thanks Bob....It just looked like a router table is the reason I asked.

I have been looking long and hard at the Ridgid spindle sander that is changeable to and from a spindle and belt sander. I think if I can find a good deal on one I will buy next month.
