    Making a proper bolt!

    Ever get tired of that "righty-tighty" nonsense? Ever throw a wrench across the room after finally figuring out the bolt is a left-hand thread for some godforsaken reason?

    Well, the Russians have solved the dilemma.



    Anyone know what that motorized Makita gadget is?

    So.... a bolt that goes both ways.... I think they already have an acronym for it

    Looks like a baby plunge router minus the plunge base.

    Makita trim router, laminate trimmer, etc. Fixed base, not plunge. I've got one, great little tool.

    I was watching that same exact video last night and marveling at the machining. Even though about the only word I understood was him saying "Yes!!" a few times as the bolt freely spun out I really liked it.

    Yes, especially the last few minutes of him playing with his nuts

    He could have tapped the nut both ways also I think
    Could he then tighten and loosen it clockwise and anti clockwise ?

    A good guess is better than a bad measurement

    Neat for sure. Pretty worthless though for anything practical. The only way it works is with massive pitch. Reduce the pitch to useable and there would be no threads left. That is already weak. Normal pitches forget it.

    I think a Yankee screwdriver has had threads going both ways for 50 years.

    The original maker made another video where he threaded the bolt in two directions as requested by viewers.

    I'm sure I could still cross thread it with an impact wrench.

    Re: Making a proper bolt!

    That is very cool...

    But 5 days of turning...jeez I wish I had that much free time.

    I guess if it is below zero for half the year...then 5 days screwing around in the shop ainít so bad.
