This screw is used to mount a carving to a carving arm or bench. Carvings are secured by pre-drilling a hole in the base or the back of it and then attaching to the tapered part of the screw. The crew is then tightened by using the hole in the T handle. When the screw has penetrated the wood deep enough for secure holding the rest of the screw is passed through a hole in a bench or a slot on the carving arm. The T handle which is also the nut is then threaded onto the screw until the work is pulled tight against the bench. Considerable pressure can be put on the screw by tightening the T nut. If the carving needs to be rotated loosen the wing nut and position the carving then tighten again. No need to drill a deeper hole like conventional carving screws.
Holds more tightly than a straight screw.
6 3/4 inches for small to medium carvings.
High quality construction with cadmium plating on the screw. Rugged T handle wrench for driving in the screw is black powder coated for protection.
Plastic coated handles on the T handle wrench for safety and easy gripping.
