Go to you tube and look for geometric die head and you will see how those cutters work.

looks like a different version of thread files. I have the thread files. Think I only used them once. Should give them away one of these days.

Hi Jim , back in the early 70's I was shown how to use a geometric die head . The thing that is throwing me off on this tool is that the "die" is held in a handle . I did find this vid , but I really don't see it having anything to do with metal machining .
Bill , that was my first thought . Hold the tool up to the thread turn on the lathe and chase the thread . I know that's wrong , my fingers hurt just thinking about it .
