Thread milling
« on: September 15, 2008, 11:17:10 PM »
I have a question regarding thread milling.
Can a tapered pipe thread be thread milled?
I've done some standard straight thread milling but never a tapered thread such as NPT.
Anyone have any helpful hints?
Thanks in advance.

Yes it can be done, use a single point tool and lots of maths.

PM me your email address.
