  • First threads on my new lathe

    Today I decided to thread something. Nothing special but it was really fast and easy to do. It is a 1.5 mm thread on a 25mm shaft turned down from 35mm shaft. I didn't use any oil until the last two passes. I was just trying to get the sequence down.

    Having the DRO to increase the depth of cut was great.

    I think one of my first projects will be a swing up threading tool.

    I know it is all old hat for you guys but for me it is really a treat to be able to do some of these things.
