Well I've reached the stage where I need to cut an internal thread on the CNC lathe.  I use the Simple Threading wizard for OD threads but there's no obvious way to tell it I want an internal one.  On the other hand if I make X End larger than X Start in the wizard it generates code and doesn't raise an error - is that the way to use it for ID threads please?

Answering (I think) my own question, running in simulation mode suggests that this does indeed work.
