I am looking for 1/4" guide bushings -- slimline (already gooooooogled
many times) (screw-in or press in that will be placed in close
proximity to each other-- 7. Think oversized domino jig. I used to
have one made of steel (operative word = had) Maybe I should just make
another insted of spending all this time on the net. Many thanks
Yes, guide bushings- the ones on that site were the thinnest wall I've
seen, but I need something of the order of 3/8" OD or smaller. Would
stainless steel tubing work? If so, where might I get some?-- I'm not
planning to make a huge production run-- If SS tube might work, I could
always press out the old with the new. BTW the holes are are on the
order of about 1/8" apart
Look in the phone book under machine shop supplies. These are a standard
tool and die item.
Or go to http://www.mcmaster.com /
type drill bushings into the find box and you should be pleasantly
About the time I had mastered getting the toothpaste back in the tube, then
I don't know how slim they are offhand but Rockler Hardware sells drill
guides in a variety of diameters. As does McMaster-Carr. If you can't find
one that will work from McMaster, you need to seriously readdress your needs
as they've got dozens of different sizes and types.
Thanks for all the replies--- Think I'll hunt up my 1/4" hardenable
steel I've had laying around for about 20 years & just make a drill
jig-- Now to find that #$%^ piece if steel. Although I think I'll
check out the roll pins.
Another thoughtt may be a roll pin (sometimes called a spring pin).
They are sized by OD, but are hardened and hollow. Any hardware store
will have some, you will have to measure the ID to see how close to
1/4" they are.
