Heck,My son-in-law built a Gingery Lathe out of car pistons, a 6' ladder and auto running boards.
His first threading setup used All Thread with a 10 tpi. He did use a bigger lathe to build the head, then used the head to build the tail. It was quite the project, and I would have spent the money to buy one, but by the time he had it built it he had a good idea how to use it.

No you are right. That lathe can't do anything. Although it was probably the most precise lathe at the time for its size, it can't do anything without an operator that knows how to use it and set it up. Why don't you ship it out to me. I know what to do with it.
