Product Information:

This threadbox and tap, for cutting external and internal threads in wood, is useful for making clamps, jigs, fixtures, knockdown furniture, toys, and novelties. Although traditional in design, modern technology and metallurgical advances have improved the traditional threadbox and tap and perfected its components. Hardwood threadbox with turned handles has an aluminum insert to prevent wear and extend the tool life. Steel tap is machined to close tolerances and designed to allow easy chip clearance. The resulting wood thread is both tight fitting and strong. Includes threadbox, regular tap and instructions.

    Comments about Woodthreading Kit, 1-1/2" x 6 TPI :

    When first tried the threads of the rod were shorter than the tapped hole. The thread box must be pushed down while in use to lengthen the thread spacing so you get the same number of threads per inch in rod and hole. Otherwise the threads bind. The thread box also needed the blade honed so it didn't tear. After adjusting it worked well and I'm happy with results

    Comments about Woodthreading Kit, 1-1/2" x 6 TPI :

    The one star off is due to the tweaking I had to do before it would work right. After tweaking it's definitely five stars! The dowel I received was a tiny bit oversized so it kept binding up in the entry hole. I used a scraper and trimmed down the dowel a little so it fed in easier. It still kept binding up on the way out. It took me a little fiddling to figure out that it was because the cutter wasn't protruding enough. Once I set the cutter correctly and rubbed on a nice helping of boiled linseed oil it worked like a dream! I wish they made bigger ones too.

    It does what it says! Just make sure you lubricate the tap and die with linseed oil during use. It makes a big difference!

    Comments about Woodthreading Kit, 1-1/2" x 6 TPI :

    From the manual: "The hole in the removable wooden bottom is drilled to exact specifications by the factory." The opening in mine is not centered causing wider threads on one side. I used calipers to measure this. It cannot be corrected.

    Best Uses

    Comments about Woodthreading Kit, 1-1/2" x 6 TPI :

    When it works, it works great. The tommy bar on the tap is much too soft as a handle without wrapping it around the shaft. The cutter on the thread cutter is very low quality steel. I mangled mine on a hard spot (not a knot). I plan on making my own cutter as a replacement. With modification, this can be an outstanding tool.

    Difficult to use

    • Hard To Use

    Best Uses

    Comments about Woodthreading Kit, 1-1/2" x 6 TPI :

    This was a disapointing product. The tap handle bent and it was very difficult to cut through maple even if well lubricated. The die was just as hard but was solidly made. Perhaps the 1 1/2 inch size is just to much to ask of this design.

    The woodthreading kit includes both the tap and die. There are many uses for a threaded wood screw. especially since you can use many different types of wood and can use it for a vice or for assembly of other wooden projects.
