The BAER dies - this is how they are constructed

A cutting tool has a cylindrical body with some characteristic features:

  • Cutting: Cut the thread profile into the stud according to the selected standard.
  • Chip holes: Depending on the design, three, four or more chip holes through which accumulating chips can be removed.
  • Recesses: Tapered recesses on the outside are used for firm anchoring in the holding tool.

In addition to round dies, there are also hexagonal dies or cutting nuts. These can be operated with a normal ring wrench, for example, but are more suitable for recutting external threads. Special dies are used to produce external threads on pipes in the plumbing and heating sector; these are also known as cutting dies. Other special forms are automatic dies and bell dies.

BAER Die - external thread cutting made easy

If you have a bolt or round bar with the appropriate diameter, it is easy to cut an external thread. It is up to you whether you want to use a machine for this or perform the operation by hand. Each die is basically suitable for use in both the die holder and the machine. In any case, you should first chamfer the edges of your bar or bolt. This not only facilitates the cutting process, but also the use of your threaded rod later on.

External thread cutting by hand

To cut an external thread by hand, you need a die holder. This is a specialized holding tool that is used exclusively to hold a die. Place the die in the round opening and tighten the mounting screws. The cutter can be used from either side, so you do not need to pay attention to the orientation. Using cutting oil, now turn the die onto the bolt until the desired thread length is achieved.

Use die in the machine

You can also cut external threads with your stationary lathe or drill. You do not need a special die for this, but you do need a holder that is compatible with your equipment. The die is then fastened here in the same way as with the die holder and turned onto the bolt. Unlike when using a die holder, the thread length is limited here, as the finished cut bolt can only protrude a short distance into the holder.

You can use these practical aids to facilitate clean alignment when cutting external threads by hand. The die guide is inserted into the die holder together with the die and helps keep the tool plumb. For successful thread cutting and less waste.

Dies sets and assortments

In addition to the possibility of purchasing tools and accessories individually, we also carry a number of sets and assortments. These are particularly interesting if you have a large demand for cutting irons and need many different sizes. On the other hand, beginners also benefit from the hand-picked assortments.
