Thinbit has expanded its selection of Microbit solid carbide tools to include acme-threading profiles. The added tools are designed to cut thread sizes 6,10,12,14 and 16 threads per inch (TPI). They are equipped with geometry to cut a specific thread profile. Otherwise, the lather can be set to cut alternate thread sizes.
