Quick Threads Wizards
« on: December 24, 2007, 10:10:48 AM »
Here is the Re-uploaded "Quick Threads" Wizard, (

I  built a Lathe Threading Wizard called "Quick Threads", you can do Multiple threads, clearances, directions, hands...etc.
I added that nice little "Free Ware" Thread calculation Wizard that was posted up here so You can have an easy access Thread form calculator chart!! It has a Help file for how to use it, please read the "Read Me 1st".

I hope you like it, tell me what you think,

There already are some roughing/finishing wizards for just that, run one of them first then run the threader.

Hi Scott,

I'm just getting started with cnc threading and your new wizard seems like a good starting point.

One dumb question to start with...  How do I change a value on one of the wizard screens?  If I highlight a field, I can change the value, but as soon as I select another field the value reverts to it's default.  I'm doing something silly, please enlighten me...

When I load the wizard the field values are displayed in a yellow font on a bright green background.  Its kind of difficult to read.  Is there an easy way to change this?

Hi Scott,

It looks like I pulled down v2 with the non-muted colors.  I'll pull down V3 and try again.

Still haven't figured out the change settings silliness...

I wish I had a buck for every time that problem has appeared here. After you enter a value you must press the ENTER key, if you click into another box mach assume you really didnt mean to change the value.

If you want it to appear as a turn  wizard then it goes into the c:\Mach3\TurnAddons\QuickThreads. It will then appear on the list of wizards shown by the menu item for wizards.
