Its called the easy-set threading jig because the depth of cut is easily controlled by twisting the silver round handle clockwise to push the main body into the cut. The handle has an internal click system so 9 twist clicks gives you the depth for the 12 tpi , 7 twist clicks gives you the depth for the 14 tpi, 5 twist clicks gives you the depth for the 16 tpi and 3 twist clicks give to the depth for the 20 tpi. The handle on the back gives a 6" swing so you can rotate under control easily. The 20, 16 ,14 and 12 tpi parts are machined with the front lathe spindle thread out of one piece. This gives ultimate accuracy unlike systems where the thread adapters have to be attached to a common holder.
The Threading Jig includes the 16mm thread cutter and the hinge plate.
The standard configuration of the Threading Jig is 16 tpi and 1" Tool Post.
You can choose a different tpi option to cut other thread pitches and a different tool post diameter. There are also Extra Spindles (Stems) available that enable you to cut other thread pitches with the Jig. You can also get an extra spindle/stem to cut the thread size of your lathe spindle enabling the direct mount of wood on the lathe spindle.
There are three options for holding the cutter: grip the cutter shaft in your chuck, use the optional MT2 Draw Bar Holder or the optional Spindle Cutter Holder that threads directly onto the spindle of your lathe.
