It is always fun to play in the shop and see what new skill you can learn. Thanks to some help from my good friend and CNC guru Bill Lisica I can now make threads on the CNC. That’s right, no lathe was used in making this 1.25”, 8 pitch by 5” bolt and nut combo. The wood came from the scrap pile out back of my local Lumber Liquidators and my best guess is Jatoba.

I’d say that this was grade great.
Crisp and clean, 50 years ago this would have been indistinguishable from magic.

Now that’s impressive. I assume you have a 4 axis CNC???

Nice sculptural piece that would look cool on a desk and fun to fiddle with during boring conversations.

I’ve never been able to figure out a workable fixture for machining internal threads. Nice work!
