Anyone ever cut external NPT Pipe Threads in thick wall Brass using a Pipe Threading Rachet/Die or Machine?
Cut them using a lathe before
NPT?? really?? If you ever do it on the lathe again I would love to watch. that boggles the mind.
Can use the compound and/ior the taper attachment if the lathe is equipped with one
We dont have a taper attachment for any of our lathes.
If it’s small, you can rotate the spindle head of the Sherline to cut tapers.
He/She who rotates is responsible for truing it back up when done.
Trueing up a Sherline is east, just insert the keyway again in the spindle. The same withe the Lathe or the Mill.
