    Posted: 27 Feb 2011 at 12:10pm
Hi - I've just aquired this thread cutting jig and wondered if anyone can help me with information on its use. I have a basic understanding of how it works but I'm not sure how best to set it up. It appears to be complete except for a cutter. It was originally designed to fit the old Carbatec lathes from about 20 years back, but I have managed to get it to fit on my Axminster M330 by swapping the cam lock washer off the tailstock and it locks onto the bed firmly.
I  found an old advert  in the March 1993 edition of Practical Woodworking showing this and other 'Titan' branded products from a Company called M&M Tools. It claimed the ThreadMaster could cut threads up to 12" diameter. It came as standard with a thread pitch of 10 tpi but optional accesories were available to convert this to either 4 or 16 tpi.
Any information on where I might find a suitable cutter, instruction manual or just some guidance on how to use it would be much appreciated.
 
Many Thanks.

Hi John,
Wivamac do a similar threading jig for their lathes. The jigs and spare cutters are sold by the Toolpost so talk to Peter Helmsley and ask for a TPC3412, Cobalt HSS cutter for threading jig. The website has a price of £22.47 which I think excludes VAT

many thanks for the replies and usefull info, Toolpost came up trumps, Peter Hemsley gave me loads of help, sorted out the cutter and also sent me some info that Bonnie Klein had produced on a home made jig that basically does the same thing. I reckon I should be able to now get this up and running.
 
p.s. first time I've dealt with Toolpost, definately won't be the last, what a great shop, Peter was more than helpful, brilliant bloke - thanks for the intro!

I just picked up one of these units the same as you have  would you mind emailing me any info you have to timberly@xtra.co.nz  This one came with cutter brand new in box but no instructions  The lathe I brought on the weekend a Coranett record no1 I brought not for the Lathe but as I wanted the threader for a mate  unbelievable amount of gear But being a number one Morse taper makes all the bits of no use to me  It come with 4 craft supply chucks about 7 tool rests and engineers chuck and 40 chisels,more centers than you can shake a stick at
Wouldnt have a clue to what half the stuff with the chucks is as Ive never seen these brands before
  I thought I was a tool- aholic

Hi Terry, Have you thought about putting it altogether and seeing if you can make something with it (like a decent pen (in the shape of a canoe Wink))

I have tried to train my cat but he has no real interest.

In fact he decided he would rather just have a kip.

A lathe is a tool not a constraint.
