Since the bit used for cutting is solid carbide, you can produce thousands of threads without ever having to sharpen it or adjust its angle. You can thread any species of wood - including exotic - without pre-treating and many plastics as well. Your router clamps to the hard maple (Acer saccharum) and aluminium table. For fast setup, an aluminium centring sleeve is included. Precision machined Delrin threading inserts ensure accuracy without marking your wood. Internal threads are produced with combination taps designed especially to cut wood easily and cleanly. All taps have removable pilots with the capacity to tap a full thread within 11mm of the bottom of a hole, so that separate bottoming taps are unnecessary. The socket head screw, which secures the pilot to the tap body, is quickly and easily removed and just as easily reattached with the wrench included in each Wood Threader Kit. Available as individual 'one-size' sets or in economical multi-size sets. The complete range provides six sizes, supplied with comprehensive instructions.
