Episode 05 Wooden Thread Cutting

Wooden Thread Cutting

Cutting a thread in metal is a relatively easy affair, especially with the thread-chasing tools available for lathes. How cool would it be, to be able to easily produce a wooden thread – imagine all the applications! Tools, height adjustable stools, toys, wooden vice etc etc

This video demonstrates a very, very simple tool for creating male and female threads.

Purchased from Carbatec, Melbourne – cost was about $65 (for the 1″ version). The price varies depending on the diameter of the thread, with the 1/2″ going for about $60 to the 1 1/2″ for about $70.
