Milling Threads

For those interested I shot a short movie clip of a tenon getting threaded. You need windows media player to watch it.

Tenon Threading

Here are some images from the operation...

This 3 flute thread mill turns at very high speeds to produce a nice thread even on maple. Typically wood like maple does not thread well without this type of procedure being used.

The end result allows a nice mating of the threaded ferrule.
