Using a TAP as Thread Boring Tool

Using a tap to cut threads?! I know, crazy, right? But just you watch!
In a pinch you can use a smaller tap of the right pitch to thread larger bores than the tap was intended for.

  • That's pretty cool I don't know that I would've thought of that. I can appreciate all the effort it takes for you to make the videos as well as you do. With the pandemic going on. I've had to make videos for my students and found that's a lot harder than one would think.

  • Hi Tony. I have an unrelated question. Is it practical to do some limited milling on a lathe. I imagine some mechanism to hold work and move it horizontally through the cutting mechanism. How about the ability of the lathe to hold a cutting head?

    Lee Harvey GriswoldLee Harvey GriswoldDag siden
  • Add even more to that, note this: Take a 36 tpi tap, set the lathe to 36 tpi speed - and you get a single thread... set the lathe e.g. at 9 tpi and cut with the 36 tpi tap - and you get a 4 start thread.

Not all of us can move as freely through time as you can. Really love your sense of humor and amazing skill set. I recently acquired my second lathe and my first knee mill and have been going crazy buying tooling and trying to get it all up and running. I would love to send you some photos of my setup sometime.

  • @3:40, you say, '. . .but the business end of these are exactly the same as the external threading tool.' ...You make 1 of 2 errors. The first choice is a subject to verb number error: '. . . the business end of these are . . .' should be, '. . . but the business end of these is . . .' ...The business end is singular and needs a singular verb. That would be is. ...The other possible error is more logical. It's a subject of a later pronoun to verb number error. You should say, '. . . but the business ends of these . . . ' These is the key word here. These is a plural pronoun and logically should follow a plural reference, which here should be the plural 'ends,' not the singular 'end.' ...All of this might seem nitpicky and pompous of me, but think about it: English is ever-so-much-better when correct. You should correct this.

  • The book of Isaiah was written 700~ years before the Lord Jesus Christ was born. Read the Bible, pray, and fellowship with other believers. (Isaiah 7:14) Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. (Matthew 1:23) Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (Isaiah 9:6) For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. (Isaiah 9:7) Of the increase of his government and peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David, and upon his kingdom, to order it, and to establish it with judgment and with justice from henceforth even for ever. The zeal of the LORD of hosts will perform this. (Psalms 2:7) I will declare the decree: the LORD hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee. (Psalms 22:15) My strength is dried up like a potsherd; and my tongue cleaveth to my jaws; and thou hast brought me into the dust of death. (Psalms 22:16) For dogs have compassed me: the assembly of the wicked have inclosed me: they pierced my hands and my feet. (Psalms 22:17) I may tell all my bones: they look and stare upon me. (Psalms 22:18) They part my garments among them, and cast lots upon my vesture. (Zechariah 12:10) And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplications: and they shall look upon me whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn. (Zechariah 13:6) And one shall say unto him, What are these wounds in thine hands? Then he shall answer, Those with which I was wounded in the house of my friends. (Psalms 16:10) For thou wilt not leave my soul in hell; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption. (John 1:1 KJV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:2 KJV) The same was in the beginning with God. (John 1:3 KJV) All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (John 1:4 KJV) In him was life; and the life was the light of men. (John 1:5 KJV) And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. (John 1:14) And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (John 3:16 KJV) For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. (Isaiah 52:13) Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high. (Isaiah 52:14) As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: (Isaiah 52:15) So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider. (Isaiah 53:1) Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed? (Isaiah 53:2) For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him. (Isaiah 53:3) He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. (Isaiah 53:4) Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. (Isaiah 53:5) But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:6) All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all. (John 3:5) Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. (John 3:6) That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (John 3:7) Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. (John 14:6) Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (Romans 3:23) For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God; (Romans 3:24) Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: (Romans 3:25) Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remission of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God; (Romans 3:26) To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus. (Romans 6:23 KJV) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:1) Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; (1 Corinthians 15:2) By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:3) For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; (1 Corinthians 15:4) And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures: (Romans 10:8) But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach; (Romans 10:9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. (Romans 10:10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:11) For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed. (Romans 10:12) For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him. (Romans 10:13) For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. (Ephesians 2:8) For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: (Ephesians 2:9) Not of works, lest any man should boast. (Ephesians 2:10) For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them. (Ephesians 4:4) There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; (Ephesians 4:5) One Lord, one faith, one baptism, (Ephesians 4:6) One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. (Matthew 28:18) And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. (Matthew 28:19) Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: (Matthew 28:20) Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Proverbs 30:4) Who hath ascended up into heaven, or descended? who hath gathered the wind in his fists? who hath bound the waters in a garment? who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell? (Proverbs 30:5) Every word of God is pure: he is a shield unto them that put their trust in him. (Psalms 2:12) Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him. Jesus loves you very much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • What you need to watch in threading is oversize condition ,so to use a tap the proper way in lathe is float the tap so it follows the hole otherwise it acts like a boring bar. And gives you a oversize thread. Which also cause oversize if you feed too fast or to slow.

  • Hi Tony. Great video again! I've used this technique 'the other way around' - with the workpiece stationary and the tap spinning (CNC). It means different sized threaded holes can be machined with the same tap - obv. same pitch thus reducing tool changes! Also if an angle is ground on the 'leading edge' of the tap, similar to a drill bit, the hole can be bored first, then tapped. I believe this is called a 'thriller' (tap and drill-er)

That's how they did the 20 American Diplomats in Cuba that's High Frequency Energy Sounds into all 20 American Diplomats at one time or not ask American Diplomats that was in Cuba if they hear sounds in the inner ears or seen antennas on a Navy Ship nearby. Look up implants mine control an torture it said almost everyone was implanted at birth an also said law enforcement is behind the Torture. My 3 years old Son Zachary Davis Manke an I been Raped an Tortured by this device - antennas. My next door neighbor is law enforcement an my other I believe is a FBI.

  • Have a "so you think you are mechaknuckical, huh?" challange. The story. About twenty years ago I went to an auction.... about over, only a few things left ... there's this very pretty little table. Nobody bids, the auctioneer gets down to two dollars and I shrug. Sold. I go over to pick it up... it's heavy. Dontcha know there's a SEWING MACHINE in it. Another shrug, I get home put it in the corner where I wanted a sometimes possibly marginally flat surface... But it's really pretty so I throw a piece of plywood over it. And there it's sat. Now this is an old ugly garage. About five years ago the little leaks in the roof went completely... old rubber roof kinda tore itself to pieces over one winter/spring. In a heavy rain it was worse than having no roof at all ... no joke. I had thrown tarps over most tools and stacks of things, but over about two months ... when it rained A LOT ... I rebuit the roof (rather than slightly slanted rubber, an A frame roof ... try that sometime on a slant roof and tell me you have no use for high school trigonometry.) Anyway, the only protection this had was a slab of now rotting plywood and not only had there been a little water in the garage every rain for years but for about a - very rainy - month it was bare to the sky. About five years ago.... (the garage has been bone dry ever since ... the wolf spiders got PO'd and took off, but the granddaddy longlegs and other web spinners love the new digs) Well last week my daughter who's been knitting and stitching for years visits and says something about wanting a real sewing machine. A tiny litttle dim grain of wheat bulb in my head goes off.... I think I have one! So I dig it out expecting a rusty piece of junk suitable only for fill in the next sinkhole I see. But surprise it's still incredibly clean. Some pieces even move.. So I crack it open. It's an old Gimbel's Deluxe model fwiw. Wow. The cams gears and slides are incredible. A transmission mechanic might be comfortable with it, but me, I broke it down to where I can clean and oil all the remaining moving pieces, but I'm really afraid that if I take it down much more it will be something I can't get back together and get the timing and angle relations right. Well I have everything moving freely and oiled up ... I'm going to use lithium grease on some sliding cams ... and I think I can get the rest of it all back together again for her. At this point I know WHAT everything does though with the sewing thing I'm still not sure I know the why of everything it does. But it should be a good gift for oldest daughter I'd bet your Maho doesn't have very much on the way of complexity over an old good quality mechanical sewing machine! (I *know* that my 3d printers aside from all the electronics are mechanical toys in comparison, and it puts even my (Chinesium mini) lathe to shame. So just for giggles the challenge is to pick up an old quality sewing machine(I'm surprised says here you can get them for a hundred on ebay... I don't think there's ANYTHING for sale to consumers matching that measure of precision machining you can buy today for less than a couple thousand ... if at all) and have some fun with it. As said I think I know *what* things do, but if you turn up something I hadn't noticed or even more can elucidate some of the why of some of the wierd movements going on in there I'd be interested. Obviously I have no right to demand anything, and this is more of a "you might think this fun and interesting" kind of thing. But I am really, really, really impressed by the complexity and quality of machining in these old sewing machines.
