Hand Thread Chasing with Allan Batty - Full Length Video
Thread cutting with the Mayes & Warwick® Premium Thread Chaser Set is a fun and rewarding technique that adds a little extra touch to your custom turned boxes. Thread chasing by hand is nearly a lost art, but due to demonstrations and articles by British turners Allan Batty and Bill Jones, it is becoming quite popular among todays turners. Two tools are needed for thread cutting; a notched set of chasers which include an outside and inside chaser. Also, the lathe needs to be capable of low speeds from 100 to 300 RPM.
