Mike Peace demonstrated how he manually uses thread chasing tools to add threads to the lid then the body of a turned box.  He then demonstrated the results of a collaborative effort of several members to construct a lathe mounted fixture to cut threads into a box.  The device resembled a hybrid of end mill table controls and metal lathe tool post controls mostly made of wood.  The end result was remarkable at how fast and easy threads could be applied.  Mike has authored soon to be published articles on the topic and wil soon make a video on the topic.
