I need threading tools for the lathe... Anybody here used this kind of Aloris setup?

    It won't give you any idea of engagement with a thread of any specification though and if the nut is a little sloppy compared to standard and the actual mating part is spot on things may not work out well.
    If you benefit from the Dunning-Kruger Effect you may not even know it ;-)

      Hi,

      It's amazing how few class fit callouts you see on shop floor prints.......

      No, you won't know the exact measurements of your thread without measuring, but experience of screwing nuts and bolts together will tell you if it's good enough for casual work.

      If you are doing life threat level work, that's a different matter. Then you must know for sure. Otherwise, good enough really often is.

        I do both depending on the need. Wires for checking "must be right", and for others "if it screw on it's fine". Problem with so many mass produced nuts /bolts is they are awfully loose, and I get caught now and then. Then there are those threads where there is no available "nut / bolt". I was slowly accumulating a set of "good" masters but they got mixed back into the general population at some point.

        In addition to wires, for the stuff that matters I have a nice thread mic which is great for external (if the threads are cleanly deburred).

        Internal threads are another story... good luck with wires! Hard to beat full profile lay-down inserts for guaranteeing results.

        One day I'll find a dusty gigantic box for go/no-go thread checkers imperial/metric and internal/external 4-48 to 2 inch, and all for $10.

          So I bought a couple of these tools, one for internal threads and the other for external.
          I'm not sure what grade of carbide they are, but it sound like it could be pretty hard.

            I guess you would be diking around in the shop with those?

              That's standard procedure for me.

                  What size do you need? I have about 50 Aloris BXA tools & several duplicates. Let me know if BXA will work & I check the shop but might be a day or 2 as I screwed up my back WORSE & it's not getting better so I may be done but if the size works & I have any extra it's yours.
