Does X7 verify shows threads cut on a lathe correctly? I see concentric rings. Bigger question. Can I cut a helical groove path on a 2 axis lathe with a groove tool? Feed rate would be crazy. The tool has to have a lot of lead clearance. I'm trying a thread path with a groove tool. Its close but verify doesnt show it correctly. I know the math for drawing true threads is is HUGE. I can make a form tool for the shape I need. Im just trying different ideas. You have to think outside the box to get this one to work. Think of a collied hose for a airgun.I need that shape for 9" or so. Without a form tool, I dont know if I can cut the profile with a groove tool. The start , stop points have to be on the money. Any Ideas I'm not seeing? Machineguy The material is clear plastic rod, 1.250 dia.
