life and thread quality are directly related to the utilization of
proper lubricants for the material being threaded.
When producing internal and external threads in all grades of steel, including steel and wrought iron pipes, it is recommended that a good grade of sulfur-base cutting oil be used. Cast and malleable iron can be threaded using soluble oil as a lubricant. Cast brass, plastic, and fiber material should be threaded dry. Free-machining brass, aluminum, and copper will thread well using light mineral oil. Variations in these basic materials will require variations in the lubricant being used.
In all cases, a liberal supply of lubricant should be used, making sure it is directed at the cutting edge of the chasers. Lubrication should be applied with sufficient pressure to assist in disposing the chips and washing them away.
