Re: Metric threading "close enough" chart
Dan,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
Unfortunately, when you're cutting metric threads with an English lead-
screw, the same mark doesn't get you to the same thread. You pretty
much have to forget the threading dial.
The advice I've seen posted before around here (search on "metric") is
to leave the half-nuts or the clutch knob locked in and just stop and
reverse the motor to power the carriage back to the start of each cut.
And you can do the last turn by hand if you have to, to set it exactly
where you want to start.
I know it doesn't sound all that easy, but after a few cuts you start
getting a feel for how it goes.
