Default Re: Mill/Lathe

I cut threads by holding material in chuck and then holding tap or die in vice with fixture or holding tap or die by hand in holder. Lathe chuck is spinning 50rpm so easy to get away from. Plus that gear reduction I have hooked to drive chuck I can adjust belt to slip at whatever torque seems safe.

So you use traditional taps and dies, someday maybe I'll get lathe that is thread cutting capable.
