ABOUT THE SIMON HOPE THREADING JIG:
Its called the easy-set threading jig because the depth cut is done by twisting the outer (silver round handle) clockwise to push the main body into the cut. The handle has an internal click system so 9 twist clicks gives you the depth for the 12 tpi , 7 twist clicks gives you the depth for the 14 tpi, 5 twist clicks gives you the depth for the 16 tpi and 3 twist clicks give to the depth for the 20 tpi. The handle on the back gives a 6" swing so you can rotate under control easily.
The 20, 16 ,14 and 12 tpi parts are machined with the front thread out of one piece. This gives ultimate accuracy unlike added thread adapters.
The basic system comes with the selected spindle thread and a spindle for cutting 16 tpi threads, it also comes without the hinge plate. For ease of operation the hinge plate is recommended with the basic system. Optional threads apart from the 16tpi are available as well as extra thread cutters and a 2MT cutter holder with a draw bar if you do not have a chuck available for holding the thread cutter that comes standard with the jig.

- 3/4 X 16 TPI 16 and 12 tpi
