Beall Tool alignment jig.

I was having trouble getting consistent results with my Beall tool so my dad came up with this idea for a jig for it. My parents came over for the weekend and I got to spend some quality time with the old man working in the garage.

Nice jig, but I was scratching my head on what it did, since I am not familiar with this particular tool, so I went to the Beall site, and now I understand.

It is "The Big Threader" essentially using a router bit to cut external threads in dowel, for use in vises, press's etc.

I have the Beall Lathe Spindle Tap which is used to make the internal threads for wooden faceplates, etc.

Good to spend the quality time with family.

Now that is cool. Both the jig, and the family time. Wish my dad lived closer.

Nicely done. That will surely help you support the longer dowels. Great work.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"
