Wood knob installation *PIC*

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.

I have had good success screwing a knob on with a brass machine screw, in this case 8/32 thread. The screw will cut the treads without need for a tap....however. A difficulty is getting the screw to start perpendicular to the knob. This difficulty is avoided by tapping the first 1/4" of the hole. I use a drill press to hold the tap to ensure it is perpendicular to the back surface of the knob. The hole is drilled as specified by the drill size for tapping whatever screw thread is used, in this case #29..
