    Star Nut Setter Dimensions

    I have the tooling, material and the time, and desire to build my own star nut setter. Can anyone provide me with the needed critical dimensions of one?

    See: http://www.parktool.com/repair/readhowto.asp?id=67

    I'd assume the only real critical dimension is setting the star nut 15mm (9/16") below the top of the steering column.

    Can anyone tell me what thread most star nuts/top cap bolts are? I've got to tap this thing before I leave today.
