    Been using them for years.
    Even use them for thread milling on the CNC.



    And the latest use is to fit them to the swing threading tool which I now use all the while.

    Works great, leaves a great thread form.

    It works fine for making tapered threads and straight threads.

    I've used dies from geometric die heads in a 4-way tool post to create long threaded sections. Just clamp one die in square to the direction of travel and engage the half nuts...
    In a couple pases you are done; works great!

    Single/multiple point threading?

    I needed to thread a 17 in. piece of one inch pipe. The power threaders were all out of the shop. Well why not set up a chaser die from a power threader? Set it up in the atlas lathe using my homemade ball brg. "steady". Set the chaser in a 4way post and squared so as to keep the taper proper. Took a marking cut and it looked fine. Ran the thread about two pitches "running". Turned out a nice tapered pipe thread. I was wondering how many have tried this method?

    Woke up to an inch of snow this morning. Gone now.
Working...
