There was a thread not long ago about creating an oil groove in a bushing. At the time I wondered if a cnc machine I have could create a groove by using something as rough as 1 or 1.5 tpi. I just made the depth .050 for the experiment. It seemed to work but the thread form for the first part of the thread was not perfect. This could have been done just as easily for an internal groove. I made a video of the operation but it is about 50MB since I know nothing about video.
