I forgot I had recently found these at an independent lumber yard.
They are 1/2" dia and 1" long they had several sizes to choose from. These should work well in this segmenting clamp jig. A little wax will help keep glue from sticking.

I was going to use these to make some temporary TBC bushings till Classics/LaserLinez gets more different bushings in stock.

WOW thanks Charlie lots of information. Greatly appreciated. I will give a few of them a try. I already made the jig just have to get the hardware. The only thumbscrews I could find are about an inch long maybe inch and a half.

I used a homemade cap from Delrin for the screws which I chose as Charlie said to avoid glue sticking. Truth be told, it may not be the best material as sometimes it wants to stick to the wood just a little and unscrews. Any plastic should work if you can tap it for the threads. I need to secure it to the bolts - possibly with epoxy. I know it won't stick well, but maybe just enough. Could also use a wax paper separator.

Long thumb screws available from ebay or amazon.
