Thread Milling 1/4"bsp port for watercooling distro plate

Post by TATH »

Hall friends,

I can use som help with Threadmiling a 1/4"port for one of my distro plates that i want to make.

I already am able to make M4 thread in 8mm acrylic pannels.
The only thing that is missing are the setting for my 1/4"ports. That thread must be 1/4" bsp
i got a tip from someone that i have to get this threading tool that is the closed.

P1.25 60 degree diam 6mmx20xd6x60 (length)
Dont ask me about the right feed and speed (still learning).

These are the specs that i put in my toolbase.
A friend told me "try and error". I rather do it more save.

Tips and help is verry appriciated. "sorry for my bad englisch/ im dutch".

A simple on-line search for BSP threads will find what you need. It is very important to note that BSP threads are a 55 degree v-form not 60 degree v-form. The thread mills you show are not correct.

As has been said if you are wanting to produce a BSP thread then you would need a 55 degree thread cutter.
Are you sure it is a BSP thread? I believe NPT is a common pipe thread on your side of the pond & it's based on a 60 degree thread angle which would fit better with the tip you say you have recieved :lol: :lol:

Hallo All,

I received a new Threading tool for the 1/4"ports i have to make in my distro plates.
The brand is Datron and itemnr: 0068450

I hope that there are people with more brains to help me with the specs i need to put in the tooldatabase.
imperial right!

This is my CNC router 2,2 kw aircooled spindle build in 2016 (getting the parts took me 2 years).

Threading is for me a complete new world. So it is not that i am lazy but i am not a engineer.

I can use som help with putting in the right numbers. "55 degree i understand :P

I build the cnc to make parts for my watercooled systems. Over the years i learned allot . No only making parts for my watercooled systems.

Sometimes i make things for college's like this:
