I've downloaded this wizard and have been reading the documentation, but I find it slightly confusing.  Just to be clear, when it says that "clockwise spindle rotation will cut a right-hand thread", is this clockwise as seen from the left hand side of the headstock, which I think is the convention for lathes?  This of course is CCW as seen by the operator standing in front of the machine.

Thanks, John.

Have not used that wizard in years. I have some info about its use in Threading On the Lathe  - Mach 3 Turn page 37 to page 39.
Make special note of the problem pointed out on page 39 about the program THREADS included with Quick Threads.

Thanks Rich, maybe I'll stick with the usual turning wizard!
