Re: Metric thread dial

William Nelson

Almost every thread I cut is to a shoulder. How do you go about that if you can't disengage the halfnuts? Do you stop the lathe some distance from the shoulder hoping you stop in time or stop far enough to not crash and then hand turn the spindle to get to the shoulder? Perhaps this would be a good operation for left to right threading? I have had the occasion where I would have loved to metric thread but don't have the gears. Maybe in the future.
