Felice is getting ready for the Holiday Market start this weekend. She discovered that one of the nuts on the "EZ Up" booth we use was missing. No way to get a replacement nut in time...
Turning down some cold rolled steel.
Tapping. Because it was a blind hole I used a tap which ejects the chips backwards.
I filed to make the rounded edges and cut off the nut.
You can see the original has a slot.
I didn't worry about copying it exactly...
