lathe threading
« on: July 12, 2012, 08:14:39 AM »
I have been reading posts on lathe threading. my question is has any body been able to "trouble free" cut threads consistently on the mach lathe setup?
I haven't been able to find a positive answer to that.
thankyou

Yes. thread all the time, anything from 10mm long to 900mm long. 3mm dia to 100mm dia. 0.5mm pitch to 4mm pitch

Yep, threading works fine. CNC threading will spoil you...!

I now use a SmoothStepper so can use the Index pulse of the encoder on my spindle motor. Previously when I used the parallel port I used an Optek OPB916B or 917B
