In Detail

This handy device considerably improves the accuracy of thread cutting in the lathe tailstock by holding the die both square and concentric to the work. It consists of a 2MT or 3MT arbor with a parallel shaft, a sliding die carrier with recesses for mounting 13/16" and 1" dies and additional carriers for 1.5/16" and 1.1/2" diameter dies which fit to the main carrier. The arbor is fitted into the tailstock barrel, the die is fitted to the appropriate holder and the sleeve is mounted onto the shaft where it is free to slide along as the thread is cut. Perfect results are guaranteed every time!

Quicker than cutting with the lead screw if you have the correct die

Great bit of kit for cutting threads and starting them off square. Much quicker than setting up the gearing and cutting a thread with the lead screw providing you have the correct die, will also allow cutting of imperial threads on a metric only lathe and of course vice-versa. Solid, well made and easy to use.

Versatile piece of kit. Works with 4 sizes of die and does it well. I have the 2mt version.

Nearly there.

A neat little tool, saw and tried it on a friends Colchester lathe. A must have if you do thread cutting on the lathe and don't have a (very expensive) die box. It would be even better if a 1 morse taper was available for those of us who have small lathes.
