Was just playing with my new lathe and practicing threading on some .250 steel stock. I was running 20 TPI setting. I micd the stock and it read .250. I threaded great and it worked well. Problem is I micd after threading and the .250 stock now read .273.
So the question is..What is the rule of thumb of stock to start with given you know the final diameter? TIA...
