The Secret to Making PERFECT Wooden Screw Threads

How cool is it to make your own All wood deep reach c-clamps What about making your own Wooden Vise Screw Or even giant scale nuts and bolts made out of all wood

You can do that, and countless other projects with wooden threads, but if you have ever tried to cut them, you may have found out that the threads tend to tear out and the cutter shreds the wood while cutting.
I’ll show you the method that I use to get perfect wooden threads of any size. And I’ll be doing it in giant scale. The reason is to show you that it can be done if everything is properly prepped. Usually the bigger the thread, the worse the tear-out. And, that is because the threading tool, whether it be the tap or the die, must cut larger and deeper amounts at once.

There are jigs that can be made to do this but nothing works as good as a dedicated wood threading kit. I like the ones from Woodcraft, and Beall and Dieter Schmidt all equally well. The truth is, that the wood prep is the most important aspect. (of course your cutters must be sharp).

Check out the Deep Reach C-Clamps I made with all wood threads:

Here are some links to the various sizes that I use. Each link is a kit that includes both the tap and die. And that is all you need to make both the threaded rod, and the nut that fits it!
