To create a thread, a tool bit specifically designed for single point threading is required. The tool bit is mounted on a tool holder connected to a lathe and then pointed at the workpiece with precision. As the workpiece rotates, the tool bit moves into it and cuts a channel that corresponds to the shape of the wanted thread.
The single point threading tool bit is inserted into the workpiece at a predetermined depth. The tool holder is responsible for ensuring that the tool bit is fed in to the correct amount. Once the necessary grove has been formed, the tool bit is disengaged and removed from the workpiece.
For threading purposes, a single point threading tool bit can be fed into a workpiece from the outside to produce an external thread, or coming from the inside to craft an internal one.
Single point threading tool bits can be deployed to craft a wide assortment of threads, most notably V threads and square threads.
A single point threading tool bit is a handy tool that facilitates the manufacturing of a multitude of unique threads. Its simplicity makes it an ideal choice for creating intricate and varied threads with relative ease.
