The cutters are too soft. The 1/2" one cut six inches in walnut. Then next piece it refused to cut anything. Looking at the cutter through the slot showed the cutter was chipped.

first class tool at avery reasonable price,a light rub with sunflower oil on dowel works ,just like magic

Well made and excellent for the price.
Definitely soak the dowel with 50/50 boiled linseed/spirit (a plumbing pvc tube blanked off is ideal).
For the internal it is hard to align the tap exactly, so fix it in a pillar drill and hand-turn the chuck to start so it starts dead square. Then remove and finish tapping by hand, with plenty of oil in there again.
Works well on any wood but best on closer grain hardwoods - beech, ash... lime is excellent!

What a magic tool, works straight out of the box. I have never seen anything about oiling the wood before you cut the threads, but following the instructions with the tools - it worked a treat on some old beech from a school worktop.
The beech worked best by being soaked in linseed oil overnight, though a quick wipe gave almost as good results.
You will need some imperial augers or Forstner bits for the female threads. e.g. you use a 7/8" hole for 1" threads. and a 1" dowell for the male threrads. Fascinates all my friends.
