Willard Baxter 's Threading Machine *LINK*

>Do any of you have/use the Willard Baxter Threading machine that my friends over at BestWoodTools make and sell?

Many of you know that Willard was a woodturning legend here in the SouthEast, that past away a couple of years ago from a brain tumor. The new woodturning studio at the John C. Campbell Folk School is named after and dedicated to him. I was lucky enough to see Willard himself demonstrate it, but at the time, I could not afford to buy one, and frankly based on what I was doing then, could not see the need for one.

Since doing a couple urns needing threaded lids, I now have the need.

Yes, I could learn to hand thread, and might some day, but right now, I am interested in opinions of this tool.

Thanks
Mark
