The La Forge Royale Miter Jack hardware is officially in production. Based on response, we're going to make 100 kits. Here's what's included:
1. Hard maple screw, threaded at 1-1/8" x 4 tpi
2. Hard maple nut block, tapped to match the screw, oversized in length and width so you can cut joinery.
3. Brass ferrule. We sourced the same size as the original, 15/16" O.D.
4. Brass garter
5. Steel hook
6. Steel garter pin
7. Groove pin
8. All the screws you need to build it (not pictured). These will be plain steel, or black oxide.
All the metal bits (except for the groove pin and steel screws) are made by us in our shop, to the exact specs of the original.
Price is $198 plus shipping
For this we're going to offer pre-ordering. We'll post the "Buy Now" button to our store page tomorrow, Tuesday August 26 at 9am. We hope to have these ready by late fall, and well before Christmas. That's the goal anyway.
We're going to include some sort of brand with the kit. Still working out the details on that.
We've also updated the Sketchup drawing to show the grain direction of each part. See the red arrows on the parts explosion (Scene 2).
