Threaded inserts for hard and soft wood. Know the difference and learn how to install them quick and easy.
Threaded inserts have many uses both in final projects and in the workshop.
In the workshop, threaded inserts are great for adjustable jigs, sleds and templates. If you have a jig that needs to be adjusted for different sizes or fine tuning parts, a threaded insert can be the key to accurate and easy adjustments.
Having a threaded knob that extends through a jig brace to adjust a pivoting guide makes for easy adjustments and if used for miter joints, you can fine tune the guide to cut perfect tight joints.
Another great place to use threaded inserts is to make assembly easy and/or tight and ridged. Unassembly is also possible without breaking glue joints or damage.
Our threaded inserts come in both metric and standard sizes for both hard and soft wood. Watch the video below to see just how easy they are to install and use.
