Nice work. I made a couple of those a while back. They are very handy.

I have collected a couple over the years, have them in a bin with the round dies.

However, I have also collected "die heads" along with boxes of chasers.....

The regular die's do have the trouble of tearing a thread upon reversing.

But they are much cheaper, and if used only once in awhile, and with care,
should work well. I like the deep hollow part your design has.

nice job Ted.
It solve the problem of getting a straight start on the lathe.

Also I want to thank you for posting your drawings. You always do that. Not all of us have the skills to create them but they are useful.
