    Just lost my caffeinated beverage through my nostrils due to the pixel censoring. You saved my virgin eyes yet burned my nares.

          I know this is an older video... but when threading a blind bore on a manual lathe, use an opposite hand tool and spin the spindle in reverse. Thread from the inside out, then you don't need the relief or "gutter" as you call it and you never have to worry about crashing. The tool can be fed into the stock to depth while the spindle is on, then engage the half nut. This creates a relief of exactly one thread pitch length and allows for true blind tapping to the very end of the hole.

            Sometimes I flipped my tool upside down and thread backwards so I don't worry about hitting a blind hole

                  Please don't ever stop filming ! I learn a lot from your video's when I'm not pausing cause I'm laughing to hard to pay any attention. I have been machining parts for years but never had anyone teach me, I learned what little I know on my own. I think its really great their are people like you who share their knowledge . I'm truly greatful....

                        nice to see someone else do this job. Everything that you did, I did back in 2009. Had a guy come to me with a lead screw on a router table. It was scary to watch you do what you did and predict every step before it happened..... " Great minds think alike and idiots seldom differ!" Haha! even the results.... I recall saying to myself.. "coulda made it a little tighter... and its loose in the middle." I did this with a 0.375 round bar drilled and tapped for blind nut on the end and i used a 0.125 TC bit i broke on some other experiment. Cheers!

                            I have an old Craftsman Planer Jointer. My part that raises and lowers the infeed table is made of cast aluminum. The weakest part of the planer. Every time that part comes up for sale on EBAY it's like a stolen sports car, "Gone in 60 Seconds".
                            Because of this video, I decided to buy the Ferrule but and attach the pivot arm that connects to the underside of the table.
                            Maybe I can make a bunch of them and sell it.
                            Electronics is my specialty. Making things is more fun. Thanks for the inspiration.

                              Sorry I had to comment again. Awesome to see you using multiple passes removing small amounts of material for a stable, clean, and harmonic free finish on the threads.

                                  You don't need gutter... It's extra work! Just drill deeper hole then needed, thread more then you need with a stop. Then part it. Tssted... Works! Only draw back is more material used. Tiny bit more.

                                                    Thank you for the precious tricks and the great fun. I was cutting an internal M19x2 thread with a Chinese Minilathe and a home made tool (in aluminum...but yet successfully!) and I would have probably not even dare trying without your videos.
