First screw threads cut using Clough42 electronic leadscrew

Metric Threads on an Imperial Lathe

You might well have read my write up on how I implemented the Clough42 Electronic Leadscrew on my Myford Super 7 Large Bore lathe.

While I have been successfully using the ELS as an automatic feed, I had put off attempting screw thread cutting.  You know how it is.   Screw cutting is nagging at you to try, but it is on the ‘too difficult’ pile pending other more interesting jobs.  There is always something else to do, so you kid yourself it is justified to put it off until another day.  Well another ‘lockdown’ day dawned and I decided today was the day.   

My experiences are recorded here as a full write up
