Rick,

I tried the paste wax with taping aluminum, and it is great. Not as messy as oil. Thanks for the tip...

Good to hear, Dik- glad it was an assist; we're all in this together, eh?

Revisiting an old thread - I needed to make some male knobs with longer threads for my adjustable height workbench. Here is a photo showing all the bits & pieces, including the piece of scrap wood with the through hole and slot for the hacksaw that I used for cutting the pieces of threaded rod to length.

Thanks for posting the all-thread cutting jig. New to me. I always just free handed it. I assume it will also help cut down on all the grinding and burr removal afterward.

That's the theory - the nut being unscrewed pushes any overhanging burrs to the end of the piece where it is much easier to file them smooth. If I did more cutting, I would perhaps look at one of the small (cheap) abrasive cut-off saws similar to those sold by HF. The set-up I use is quick, cheap(a big consideration) and gives good results - firmly clamped in a solid vise, a few strokes with a sharp hacksaw easily cuts the part and leaves minimal burring.
