only 1/2 inch of threads...



This option as well...



It's a good 1 inch just to the rod with the cap piece, and 1/2 inch to the rod without...



Is there an adapter piece that extends the mount that i missed? How is everyone mounting the rod horizontally onto the panavise with just 1/2 an inch of threads on the panavise mount?

I used a well nut on my X-Wing. It's basically a long threaded sleave. You should be able to get one to reach the outer edge of the hull. They come in many thread sizes and lengths. Would something like this work for you?

Oops, my bad. I used a brass threaded insert I got off Ebay. I just went back and checked my thread. The pics are gone though but this is what I used. Looks like you could screw one of these right in there.

thanks cosmic, but jason's video doesn't address the inability to span the large gap on the bottom of the body with the stock panavise mount.

do these brass inserts have a name? i guess i could make one out of wood perhaps?

Ahhhh, yeah, I cut a length of 1/4-20 threaded rod stock, and "added" it to the Panavise mount. Screwed the Panavise threaded bit into a female/female coupler, and the new length of rod into the other end. JB Weld held it all together.

It was something like this - got it at home depot:

Stanley 83-6353 1/4 - 20 Zinc Plated Threaded Rod Coupling

It's great, because the coupler lets the model screw down tightly to the Panavise mount AND the model without digging in too deeply.
