Designed to be mounted on the Wivamac DB1410 Compound Table, the DB1430 Thread Cutting Jig allows threads to be cut on a workpiece which is held in a chuck mounted on the spindle of the thread cutting jig. The spindle advances 2 mm with each full revolution using the standard leadscrew (i.e. the spindle acts as a 2 mm pitch leadscrew. A limited range of alternative - metric - leadscrews are available to special order). A cutter with a 60 degree included angle and 8 mm shank is held in a small chuck mounted in the lathe's main spindle and is used to create the thread form in the workpiece. The system adjusts to the workpiece diameter and the depth of thread is varied by indexing the compound table across the lathe bed.
WivaMac are producers of high quality, high performance, superbly built and specified woodturning lathes.
We have worked with WivaMac since our very beginings, indeed we were a customer before we were a retailer. We visited Willy's shop in Belgium where we lived at the time and this was our 'pilgrimage' for woodturning equipment.
We have seen the evolution of the machines over the years. Hemsley Sr. continues to turn on his DB6000 to this day, whilst Hemsley Jr. tackles work on a Zebrano - generations of owners, separated by generations of machines, it seems only fitting really.
To this day, WivaMac continue to put quality manufacturing and innovation top of their list and continue to deliver superbly considred lathes to those who settle for only the best.
