This kit includes all the parts needed to add a threading dial for cutting inch threads to a G0516 with an imperial lead screw.
Chris' Tips This threading dial is not a great design and tends to bind. You should expect to have trouble making it work.
The threading dial tells you when to engage the half-nuts during threading. It turns when the half nuts are NOT engaged. IT DOES NOT TURN WHEN THE HALF NUTS ARE ENGAGED.
Mounting this threading dial requires that you drill two holes in the carriage. This drawing shows where to drill the holes.
This product works with the following lathes. (If your machine is not on this list, check with us before ordering.)
