>got a set of thread turners and a video tape. Had no trouble making an inside (female) thread in a piece of cocobolo, but the outside one was a bummer. The inside teeth were set at a slight angle in the tool, so they spiraled in nicely. The outside ones in the tool were strictly vertical and all I got was a set of parallel grooves. They make a lovely design in the foot of a bowl, but how do I get them to spiral?
