I was playing with my lathe today and trying to make a two-part cane using the hardware that Rockler woodworking sells. http://www.rockler.com/brass-cane-hardware

Any tips on getting the hardware screwed into the pilot holes? They have non-standard threads so I was pretty much stuck using one side to screw the other side in place which meant they got stuck together. Maybe if I use something as a gasket like a "washer" cut out of cardboard, or rubber so they don't screw together as tightly?

we have a similar type of product here but the base is screwed in the both parts of the shanks but I usually use epoxy as well then a threaded rod fixes then together so its a three piece job and looks a little longer than the ones you have shown. I suppose a stick supplier would supply them but it would cost to ship

I had brought the parts to the hardware store to see if I could find a matching bolt and nut to grip to screw the parts into the pilot holes, but they had nothing to fit. In the end I picked up a short piece of rubber tubing and cut off a half inch piece to put around the threads to protect them while I used a pliers to grip it and screw it into the pilot hole.
