Installing the Leg Levellers and the Threaded Bolts
|After I've drilled the 3/8" hole in the bottom of the legs,
I mix up a bit of epoxy glue, smear it on the outside barrel of the T-nut
and hammer the T-nut into the wood. I do this assembly-line fashion
for all of the leg levellers.
Installing the threaded bolt might seem to be a bit
tricky as we don't have anything to grip with a wrench without hacking
apart the thread. This is where those two 5/16" nuts come into play.
Thread both nuts onto the good end of the bolt, and, using two ½"
wrenches, tighten them up against each other so that they lock tightly
together. Mix up some epoxy glue and, with a toothpick, dab a bit
of glue into the hole in the top of the leg. Insert the bolt into
the hole and screw it into the hole with a wrench. I've used a scrap
piece of wood to make sure that I've got ¾" sticking out of the
Let the glue dry overnight and voila! Wooden
legs for your module.
