Thread cutting die

(Customer's Reviews)

Excellent tool if you follow the advice from previous reviews. I used it on the truss rod kit also sold by Stew Mac. It would be good if the 1" wrench was made available. I had one sent in from Australia!


Training is recommended.

(Customer's Reviews)

To cut a thread is not a trivial job. It must be well aligned and centered. The right side of the die must be used to start the thread more easily. The right 1" socket die holder must be used (some people try regular wrenches or vise-grips to hold the die, and get poor or no results). I use a lathe to hold the steel bar in the plate, and the die in the chuck, so everything is centered. It should be good to practice: First try to cut threads on soft metal bars, like aluminum or brass, with plenty of cutting oil (or WD40, at least). Dry threading steel is not a beginner's task.


Does the job

(Customer's Reviews)

Does the job but it's hard to work with.
