  • Compound Rest Setting.

    When cutting a RH thread away from the chuck,(threading tool mounted
    upside down, lathe in reverse) should the 29 degree compound rest angle be
    set towards the tailstock or the chuck .
    I recently, successfully cut a RH 5/8 unc thread in this way,with the compound set 29 degrees towards the chuck.

    You always feed it into the direction of cut. So you set your compound so it advances into the direction the saddle will move.
