This is my new thread cutting jig for cutting threads inside and out of turned boxes.I saw this one posted here and made my own version of it. http://www.atbq.qc.ca/jm2/thread.htm I used 3/4 baltic birch plywood and a little maple.The 1×8 threaded rod is the same 1×8 that my lathe has so I can turn the box or lid in my chuck then just transfer it on to the jig. It works great ! Sorry about the turned pictures I tried to turn them the rite way but they keep posting side ways.

Dang that is super cool! Food for projects! I’ll bet there was a bit of trial and error to get a good fit.

Excellent, since you have all the kinks worked out make a upgraded model and let me have the old one. (Laughing)

Neat!

I do some (poor) machining work here and there and it took me a second to realize what the heck your jig does. Nicely done :)

Nice job Brian. I came across that site before and have it on that “to do” list that seems to never get done. Glad to see that you put one on the “Completed” list.
