General Mach Discussion / NFS turn metric values for x axis
« on: July 16, 2015, 04:08:16 AM »
Ok, call me an idiot but I am having issues setting up values for metric threading in nfs turn wizard, my big problem is understanding what to use in the x start and x end fields, because if I follow the machinest handbook on what I thought to use I end up with something less than usable for an external thread. I am trying to make a 8mm 1.25 pitch thread using the wizard, starting with an 8mm rod and I convert all my values to inch and tpi of which is 20.32 and I get the proper pitch measured by thread gauge just not the right diameter for test fit. I am either too large or too small by just enough to not be usable, in the ballpark. I am using diameter mode.
Any help would be great

Newfangled Solutions Mach3 Wizards / Mach3 Turn wizard metric threading
« on: February 20, 2015, 03:53:59 PM »
I am just checking to see how the treading wizard works. I need to do some metric threads, do I input the values in the wizard and threads.txt in inches (converting the metric value by dividing 25.4) and just specify the pitch I want with no TPI specified? I ask because all values in the threads.txt are in inches. My machine mach3 setup is all in inches but I have a few times when I need to cut a metric external thread and would use the wizard to do them since they are easy.
Thank you
