Re: How Russians Turn Tapered Threads

Ianagos. Can you explain that? My semi-modern Tai lathe has a gear shift and it either feeds the lead screw or the keyed shaft. I think you are on to something here and there could be modification to two axis power feed. Well there is two knobs on my pacemaker that allow you to either engage the cr...

Re: How Russians Turn Tapered Threads

That's pretty cool sadly my lathe can't engage the leadscrew and feed at the same time either but for 45 degrees I can engage both crossfeed and carriage feed.

If I may ask how did you get the correct angle on the a alluminum straight edge? Also how did the aluminum deal with internal stresses being relieved? I was going to do a cast iron straight edge but may do an aluminum one first just wondering if it can become a useful tool.
