When it comes to external threading, it can be a time- and labor-intensive process that requires specific expertise if it is going to be done correctly on a consistent basis. External threading by hand is tough work, especially with the tolerances being so tight. And while using the lathe is a solution that is becoming more and more popular, it requires the right tool and the right program—not to mention the right guy to run the machine. But what if I told you that a solution existed that made external threading a walk in the park?
