Brass threaded inserts are used for easy removal of the artistic top piece as needed. Many artists make the tops and let people chose which base they like: stainless Whiskey, brass Whiskey, Niles bottle opener, etc.
The inside thread is 3/8″ x 16 tpi that will match all of my products. There is a solid band above the knurled area so you get a clean, smooth surface with no jagged spacing caused by the knurled surface. *note: if you have tear out of the threads in certain wood species, these inserts solve that problem. Drill a 7/16″ hole 5/8″ deep and push the inserts with the slits going up into the wood. You can either pound it in with a rubber mallet or thread the mandrel in and push it in that way (don’t rock the mandrel as that may make the top edge of the hole wider). When you thread in the mandrel, bottle stoppers or bottle openers, the insert ends spread slightly giving a tighter hold in the wood. You still may have to use glue with some soft or punky woods: if they go in tight, great. If they feel a little loose, take the insert out and put a few drops of glue inside the hole.
