Thread cutting die

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.

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.

I am building a replica 59 Burst and bought the Stewmac vintage trussrod. This trussrod needs cutting to length and threading at one end. It is convienent that Stewmac offer this product so I can correctly to keep to vintage spec.

I had no experience using one of these but it still worked out great. Price was great too.

I found that using this die with the traditional truss rod was a pretty heavy cut. I had trouble getting it started so i tapered the end with a belt sander. Then when it was on, it was easy to cut the threads

The die works well, you should have a cutting die tool to mount the die in for best results. It is difficult to start with just a wrench.
