Willem,

I machined everything on my mill.  I used a single tooth cutter and the free threading wizard that comes with Mach3.  Brian did a great job on the wizard and it works great.  It took me a little while to figure out the correct thread size to match the parts that I bought since they were not really standard but I got it sized the threads work very smooth.

Willem,

Not sure what you mean by "made in one tighten"  I machined the insert first then glued it into the ebonite I then machined the threads on the ebonite.  These pictures are bigger then 1:1 the threads on the ebonite are .5 inches, these are actual pen parts.

PS thanks Brian... your help is always appreciated.

Pics are ebonite with an aluminum insert.  The pen tip (nib) and chrome sleeve were purchased parts.

Well I got it to work with some help from Brian :).  I wanted to match some existing parts that I had.  They are 10 x .75 mm threads.

I used this cutter on the mill.

Here are the test parts made from wood.







Now to try some real pieces.

Thanks for all the help!  ;D ;D

It might be me but that website description makes very little sense to me.  Just look at the relationship between H1 and h3. 

I also tried to calculate to the outer point (above D) and that made no sense either. 

If you use a thread pitch of .75mm then the long side of the 30 degree triangle is .65024 mm again that does not correlate with H1 or h3 or even (D-d3)/2 which should be very close.

I am not sure this diagram is correct at all.

Want to do some thread milling with a single tooth cutter.  When I use the wizard on field is Major/Minor and I am not sure what to put into this as a value the major or minor dimension?

I would turn off the firewall in Windows (assuming you are using XP).  And then I would try unpluging the router and any hubs for a few seconds.  If you go to network places do you see other network locations (computers, drives) if so you may want to try and  rerun the network wizard. You may want to shut down any anti-virus software while you test.

Those would be things I would try but you may have already do them.  Just as an fyi I totally disabled the XP firewall it is nothing but trouble.

H,

Mach3 has a plugin for the shuttlepro 2. If you go on ebay you can typically get a decent price. Here is the orginal link discussing the use.   http://www.artsoftcontrols.com/forum/index.php?topic=1220.0


I use mine all the time and it works great.
