Turk's Head Knot Tool

Well I've been gathering the materials and trying to find the time for weeks now, and it has finally come to fruition. I got this idea from knottool.com. I found this website and quickly realized I wanted a lot of them and they are a little expensive, so instead I decided to make them myself. This first one that I'm posting is an 8 bight tool. The PCV pipe is 1-1/2" in diameter. The set screws are 6-32 x 1/2" and they have a recessed allen wrench head. I plan on making tubes like this one out of 2" & 3" pipe pretty soon.

Overall I am very happy with it. The only thing I would change is that with an even bight THK, the pins need to be staggered from the top & bottom, instead of lining up straight. Anyways I hope you enjoy!

The example knot I tied is a 9x8 casa.
