More than likely he is trying to be clever and creating a long thread? Is it half term yet?

Many thanks for all you comments / suggestions. I will treat them with the contempt that they so richly deserve. I have no idea what happened, but I cannot post 14 times in 1 minute...PC error mayhap? Cannot remove them though Anyway now to my original question
This may sound a bit of a numb question,but.... I have just received another box of bits to go with the Viceroy I was given last year. Includes chucks, dial gauges, tooling, grease guns etc. {more boxes come to light the deeper the shed is explored!!}. Anyway, one of the items is a Tailstock die holder. Takes 2 sizes of die [boxes of dies as well, he he he ] Question, this is where it may sound numb, do I use the lathe in back gear at slowest speed? do I hold the side handle or let it rest against the bed? Just seems to me that there may be 'quite a lot of torque' when lathe is running if I have got hold of the side arm!
Many thanks

Use by hand - it's just there to keep things in line.

then turn chuck back half a turn and repeat? or do I rest the arm against the bed and turn chuck by hand? I know it sounds dumb but I really cannot get my head around it! Many thanks

Either rest the arm against the bed and turn the chuck by hand, or hold the chuck and turn the arm. Six or half a dozen, how you do it. Main thing is you still cut the threads manually, as Charles said, it's just a method of holding the die inline.
As for the extra posts, even if you can delete them of the original server, they'll probably remain on numerous other ones. I wouldn't worry about them.

What Newsreader are you using?

Google Groups? or am I [and I hate to say it] on the wrong thread??

I think so - Google just nick our posts off UseNet and make them available on the Web. Access is slicker using a NewsReader designed to access UseNet. There is one built into Outlook Express you can play with to see the difference, but there are better ones around.
