    Very nice. It's a bit too long for my taste, but the work is fantastic.

    Very nice, Kevin.
    I would like it better if it was tapered back into the original bolt handle.
    Would that be a hard process to do?
    Also, what does this cost as I have some interest.

    I must agree, it is a pretty long knob. Trueblue, do you mean trying to blend the round knob into a rectangular handle? Here's another knob I made, it's also pretty long but I just make whatever the customer wants. This one blended in pretty well I think. Badger knobs blend in good too.

    Had not thought about how difficult blending a round knob to a square bolt, but that looks good.

    you ever given any thought to offering that jig for sale? Looks like a winner to me! Maybe through Brownell's.

    I believe that jig is available through Pacific Tool
