John, I do believe you have got the hang of this process. Your stuff is always top notch. Using a Baxter makes you wonder why anyone chases threads by hand. A suggestion you might want to consider; I have found that using threaded inserts (made on the Baxter) makes grain alignment a piece of cake and the max width of the parting cut is about 3/32".
I have about quit doing threads. A set of magnets properly aligned will cause the lid to "pop" off as shown in this months AAW J and for this, I still use inserts to hold the magnets. Alignment, if you drill correctly, is perfect and a lot less hassle.
