I get around this by flipping the thread tool upside down, set a stop or set up a dial indiator and zero out to your shoulder and run the lathe in reverse threading away from the shoulder.

Works great!

Very cool! How'd you make those flanges for the three bolts that mount the velo stack to the carb? Was that also done on the lathe? Is that a seperate skirt that fits over the velo stack and "sucks up" the stack to the carb?

The flange is part of the whole, its not made from two parts but from the one piece of billet. The outer shape of the flange (where the bolts go) was done on the miller using a rotary table, with a little hand filing to finish. My mate Jeff made it for me in his little home workshop.

This is the kind of stuff he makes for himself, no CNC etc..

What kind of mill is that? Dual spindles? It looks larger than the Rockwells I've seen.

Damn, that has to be handy, not needing to flip the head over on its side, swing the turret and all kinds of other nonsense, just to do something on the side of an awkward part.

Edit: looking more at the scale, is that a CAT50 machine? The guy has that in his garage?
