Allied Machine & Engineering AccuThread T3

Dover, OH – Allied Machine & Engineering, a leading manufacturer of holemaking and finishing tooling systems, adds the AccuThread T3 to their existing thread mill line. The new AccuThread T3 is built for machining hardened or hard-to-machine materials such as stainless steel, tool steel, and high-temp alloys. It is designed to machine only three threads at a time, reducing tool pressure and dramatically increasing the chances of tool survival. The T3 will provide a longer tool life, less tool breakage and higher quality threads for machinists.

Offered in both inch-shank and metric-shank options, the AccuThread T3 is made for deeper-than-standard threads, available in 2xD and 3xD. Additional diameters are available on request. Allied offers this thread mill for UN thread forms with pitches from #1-64 to 9/16”-12 as well as ISO thread forms with pitches from M2x.4 to M12x1.75. In addition, Allied Machine & Engineering provides their premium AM210® coating to these thread mills to protect from excess wear and improve tool life.

JROTC Ceremonial Rifles Fundraiser

Reader Levi McClure is running a fundraiser to restore ceremonial M1903A3 for a Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps program. Help out if you can!

My mission is to ensure the young ladies and gentlemen of the Baumholder middle/high school have ceremonial M1903A3 rifles worthy of their professionalism. Please visit my GoFundMe link to help out.

I have taken on the daunting task of restoring the ceremonial M1903A3 (de-mil) rifles for my local high school JROTC. These rifles that are used at military ceremonies and sporting events have fallen into a state of disrepair over the years. The state of these rifles have become so distressed that many of them are almost completely broken in half. I am a certified gunsmith committed to ensuring these young ladies and gentlemen can be proud to look their best during these ceremonies.

With budgeting cuts by the government, programs such as JROTC do not get the much-needed support they deserve. I have resolved to contribute the necessary hours to refurbish the rifles to something these cadets deserve. Wood restoration, metal fabrication, and parts replacement will ensure I achieve my goal for the future leaders of our military. Your contributions will provide new stocks that will be brought to a high ceremonial mirror finish, replacement parts for what I cannot repair or fabricate myself, chrome dip finish for that extra pizzaz, and period correct white leather slings. I thank you in advance for your contribution in ensuring these young cadets can match their professional appearance with their already outstanding professional demeanor.
