Sounds like enough ppl are wanting a tool.  I'll start pricing materials  I'll keep you all up to date as things progress.

Do you guys want me to make just the thread and you get the black iron parts local, or do you want the complete tool?  Keith

Material is ordered.  I bought enough of the Acme rod, to make 12 tools.  I'll be useing the 7/8-6 rod for a bit more wall thickness. 

Complete kits, will be made, with the draw tube.  I will be shipping them the cheapest way I can. 

I only got emails from a few of you, PM me, I'll drop you my mobile number. 

 

I have a job I'm running now that uses an offset tailstock setting.  So once that is off the lathe, I'll set it up for this job, provided the materials get here soon!!

I machined 6 of the tools today.  I needed to order a box of taps.  Sorry I thought I had some.  Anyway, they should be here in 2-3 days.

I finally finished mine last weekend, I had to borrowed a friends lathe. But I got it and it worked like a charm. I ended up using 1" ACME rod. I'm keeping an extra as a spare, But I have 4 other if anyone wants one. I don't mean to under cut you or any thing Keith, but I have no use for 6 of these things.

I wish you would have done this before I dropped a couple hundered bucks on material and tools, and spent a few hours of machine time

Like a said I don't want to step on anyone's toes, but I started making one 3 weeks ago. I had to order larger threaded rod because 3/4" wasn't cutting it. I'll just sit on these for awhile.

I've already have a gentlemen's agreement to 383, so unless something catostrophic happens, I will be ordering through him.

I received 383 240'z tool and the machine work turned out very nice!  I might not be using this for a while, but it should work great.  He was able to ship really fast too.

I just used 383's tool tonight and it worked like a champ!  No stripping of the threads and couldn't be happier.  Thanks again.

PM sent.  For everybody else, the tools I made are $70 shipped Priority Mail to a US address.  They are made from 1018 tool steel with a pipe puller tube. I went with a larger 7/8 for the tool, the tool is double ended so IF you manage to strip it the other side of the tool is ready to use. Thank you everybody. Keith
