Default Simple mill threading tool

Hi,
I thought I would show you how I did a simple threading too for my milling machine. Probably not the first doing this, but at least I haven't see this method in use.
The nice thing about it is that you can use it for all types and sizes of taps and you have grate control over the process. It's easy to set up when you are doing all operations on a hole before you move the X and Y axis to the next hole. If you need more force on large taps you can put a bar in the holes in the chuck. It's fast and fun to use.

Glad you liked it :-)
Used it many times today and I really like it.
Maybe I will make several more cone adapters to fit the most used tapping size drils. That way I don't have to change tools to tap.

I have the same system on my lathe using a chuck with a straight shank and a bushing held by another chuck in the tailstock.
