I have a vertical machining center running a mitsubishi meldas 520 am control
and I am trying to cut an internal 1"-11.5 NPT using a single point threading tool and am having no luck whatsoever trying to figure out what the book is telling me to do as far as a program to accomplish this. any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks
