Thread: Short handle for TS blade angle

  1. #1

    Short handle for TS blade angle

    This is used to turn the blade angle adjustment on my Rigid table Saw. I can’t use the stock handle since I added a router extension. Where can I buy a shorter version or how would I fabricate one?

    Buy a hanger bolt of the appropriate thread size and screw it into a short length of dowel.

    buy a bolt of a good length and double nut it. I have been known to soft solder the nut on when there is not enough room for double nuts.

    Thanks for the ideas. I bit the bullet and bought a solution from McMaster-Carr.

    I have seen rotating handles made for such a shaft with piece of pvc pipe and a cap glued on one end with a bolt hole drilled axially through the cap.
