Woodwork Tips - Jig to Install Threaded Inserts Questions:

What is the best way to install threaded inserts?
How do you install threaded inserts at 90-degrees?
Do you want your screws going in square to the hole?
Does using a Drill Press to install threaded inserts make sense?

Using a Drill Press for threaded inserts assures a square install. You can use a cut-off machine screw in a drill press to install threaded inserts. However, it can be difficult to turn the chuck by hand, especially in hardwood.

Would you like to have an easy method?

Here is a Woodwork Tips - Threaded Insert Installation Tool.

You can use a large plastic T-Knob on the machine screw. The large plastic T-Knob gives you a better grip to apply more torque. You can use a nut just below the T-Knob to help drive the threaded insert into the hardwood. This makes it easy on your hands.

With this simple jig, the T-Knob & nut, you can use your fingers and thumb to turn the machine screw and spindle. This gives you more leverage to go into hardwood.
