Anybody who collects antiques knows of the myriad of applications that old world woodworkers found for threaded dowels (see “Best Applications” on page 69). The large, coarse threads offer remarkable holding power and an astonishing degree of torque. And now, with the Wood Threading Kit—which offers precision cutters—you can make short work of cutting both inside and outside threads, though a few precautions are in order.
Works great, right out of the box
Recently got one along with some maple dowels, so of course, I HAD to try it right away (smile). The treads cut nice and clean on the dowel and tapped nicely in a scrap of cherry. Nut turns nicely one the dowel with out being loose.
Makes a strong connection between dowel and flat piese of wood. On occasion, when threading the inside of a 3/8ths inch hole, a fracture appears, at least when using a pine board.
Handy tool to have around!
I have the 3/4" version of this & use it all the time. I am hopeing this will serve the same purpose.
Do Not Reccomend
Attempted to thread wooden dowels for childrens work bench. Didn't work on first try. The blade is aluminum and disfigured right away.
I had purchased a threading tool before with good results but this tool came with poor quality cutting edge and I had to return it.
