How about putting up a new post showing how you did it. This would include:
A description of your lathe
How you ground the cutter
How the cutter was held in the lathe
The angle of the compound
How you used the threading dial
How much metal you removed with each pass
Which slide you used to change the depth of cut
The orientation of the screw in the chuck
The direction of feed
How you tested the thread when you were finished
This would have a lot of meaning to others coming from someone who just did it and fought their way through the process.
