Cut Threads On A Wood Lathe
To easily cut accurate threads has been a challenge for woodturners, until now. The Thread Champ uses a new design that provides improvements over older style thread cutters.
Setup in two minutes or less.
See Youtube video at:
- Cut 8 and 16 thread profiles without accessories or attachments
"Note: Cutting a two start thread, as the Champ does in generating
the 16 pitch profile, permits the mating parts to be either in
phase or 1/2 rotation out of phase."
- Articulating beam allows matching threads without losing position
- Eliminate wobble
- Mechanical depth stop when cutting inside threads
- Tool Post included for either 1 inch diameter x 5 inch long; 1 inch diameter x 6 inch long; or 5/8 inch diameter x 4 inch long.
- Incremental easily controlled depth of cut
- Thread-cutting router bit and #2MT 3/8 inch collet are included
The Thread Champ cuts 8 pitch threads. For those preferring the look of the 16 pitch profile, the flip of a lever enables the Champ to easily cut two half-size threads in the space of one eight pitch thread. The Champ can do both thread configurations without additional cost or modifications.
The Champ features an articulating beam that allows you to swing the part away from the cutter, check the fit of mating threads, and then return to its setup position for a thread depth adjustment in seconds.
Wobble at the end of a long part is no problem for the Champ. With its widely-spaced spindle mounts that feature the ability to squeeze down on the spindle, wobble is eliminated. There are four jack screws that, if needed, can be used to zero in the concentricity of the thread area.
Once you’ve had to thread inside a dark hole, you will appreciate that the Champ has a handle that doubles as a mechanical depth stop. No worries about bottoming the cutter in the hole, and the handle makes threading a breeze.
The Champ includes a post to mount in either the 1 inch or 5/8 inch banjo receptacles, and also has two extra tapped holes in the base that can serve as mounting points on a beam of your design.
Don’t let its handsome looks fool you. The Champ is a true heavyweight that you’ll want on your side.
