Small, lite and no fat. That is what this coupler brings! Fabricated from 6061 T6 aluminum, the tapered coupling nut fits most tapered shafts but is specifically fit for Fixcraft's LT and XT. This nut will yield you the longest possible shaft length among coupling systems. As for fastening the mallet head, we use a 316 stainless steel, flat head socket screw. This can be tightened conveniently with your 3mm key on your tool set. Detailed specs are as follows:
 
SCREW:
• 316 Stainless Steel
• Length = 25mm (0.98")
• Thread = M5-0.8
• 3mm Key to tighten.
 
NUT:
• 6061 T6 Aluminum
• Length = 5/8" (15.8mm)
• Thread = M5-0.8
 
TOTAL SYSTEM WEIGHT = 7g (0.25 oz)
 
 
INSTALLATION:
 
WARNING!! - Your shaft MUST be TAPERED for this system to work! 
 
1) Drop the nut into the opening on the non-tapered end of the shaft.
 
2) BEFORE CUTTING, be sure to set the nut firmly. Tap the nut with something (a rod) or tap the tapered end of the shaft, facing downward, on something hard. 
 
3) Cut the shaft, from the tapered end toward the nut, until you have between 3/8"(9.5mm) to 1/4"(6.35mm) of shaft from the bottom of the nut to your cut.
TIP - Always cut shorter than you need and work your way up. If you cut to much, you will be screwed.
 
4) File teeth into the tapered end of the shaft. Triangle and half round files work best for this. This is to prevent the shaft from turning while playing.
 
5) Make your shaft hole on the top of your mallet head and the screw hole on the bottom. The screw hole is 1/4".
 
6) Countersink the screw hole with a blade or countersink bit for the screw head to be flush with the mallet head.
WARNING!! - DO NOT OVER COUNTERSINK THE HOLE. This mainly applies to thin walled pipe. If you countersink too deep, the screw could pull through the pipe wall.
 
7) Mount the shaft onto the mallet head. Line up the nut with the screw hole.
 
8) Insert screw and tighten. Be sure the shaft teeth dig into the inner pipe wall and the screw head is flush with the outer pipe wall.
 
9) Cut the shaft from non-tapered end down to desired playing length, plug and wrap handle.
 
10) Enjoy your sexy new mallet!!!
