Gentlemen, found my copy of subject book
 Threading Information Atlas 6" Lathes"- Atlas Press
 while finally reorganizing my
books and information of machining started in 1956 as student
shop helper working way through college at $1.00/hour
cleaning Institutes lathes, milling machines, floors, etc;
tuition $350.00/ semester  ... has it been that long?  :bugeye:

I would like to share it with all as it contains over 61 pages of  combinations for
threading, especially for metric combinations, especially  with my find of the
"Position D" special extension bracket assembly.

Would appreciate advice and guidance on how to upload jpeg images of pages
that I willing to  scan.

The Atlas 6" 'American Iron' with all its appurtenances still exceeds imports.

So envied the real tool and die makers who turned out unique
products for inventions and incipient precursors to  CNC machines.
Retirement allows reliving trying to emulate their native skills.

Ahem ... not yet delusional to dream to ever be that good.

Detailed guidance for octogenarian please for posting page images.

Best to all and thanks for years of valuable  and generous information
for self learning.
