Not that I'm the most sane person in the world but only 9? Why not make the 10th and send it to me? http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//biggrin.gif

Nice work, you'll have some happy friends and relatives.

I wasn't aware that many folks liked nuts,or for that matter go to all that work to get the meat out.
I will buy mine in a jar, thanx. http://bbs.homeshopmachinist.net//wink.gif

Those look terrific! Saves a lot of $$ on X-mas presents as well I'd imagine. I'd like to do something like that next year for my family. Did you use something like a threaded brass insert for the clamp, or just thread it directly into the aluminum?

Chad- Its just threaded into the aluminum. I used the plans from HSM issue nov/dec 2004
