    All the captions to the pictures are missing (except one). To follow what you were doing it would be nice to have some explanation. Thanks much, Dean

      The gallery is a new feature on WordPress. I didn’t realize that I could leave the captions on and they would be hidden. I’ll know better the next time. That said, every picture that you see in the gallery is taken from a post within the blog. It’s all there, a lot of information. All you’ve got to do is start spinning the wheel on you mouse. Good luck and check out Lake Erie Tool Works.

    Did you always use the piece of metal through the kerf to guide it? Did you cut in a single pass? Was thinking about attaching a threaded rod to an old router crafter to use a router to cut as well.


    • D.B. Laney Says:

      Yes the threads were cut in one pass. There’s all sorts of different ways to approach it. Have fun but be safe.

    Very nice! Last year, I converted an old Delta lathe into a computer-controlled router-lathe, and my first project was a 3.5″ diameter bolt and nut. Here: .

    Looking at your site, I realized it was one I used as a reference — your attempt to cut threads in the nut on the lathe is what gave me the idea for my fixture for internal threads.

    Great site! — keep up the good work.
