Phil Wood Spoke Cutting and Threading Machine
We recently sold our 30 year old Phil Wood Spoke Cutting & Threading Machine. It was still going strong, but we needed to make room for the acquisition of this brand new unit. The new machine rolls threads on 12,13,14,15 gauge spokes, the older P.W. machines were limited to 14 &15 gauge.
With the addition of this fine machine, we can now cut and thread any size spoke in the following gauges: 12,13,14,15. This gives us complete freedom and creativity in the wheel building process. It also allows us to perform quick repairs to damaged wheels. Contact us for questions and details on services offered.
“The Phil Wood Spoke Cutting and Threading Machine is designed and manufactured to provide an invaluable tool to manually size, cut, and place a factory-quality thread on a spoke within a few seconds. The thread is rolled/cold forged onto the spoke, which does not remove material as would occur if the thread were cut into the spoke.
The machine performs through the operation of a manual crank. One revolution of the machine handle both cuts and threads the spoke. It is designed to cut and thread 1.8 mm (15 ga.), 2.0 mm (14 ga.), 2.3 mm (13 ga.) and 2.6 mm (12 ga.) spokes and place 10 mm of 56 tpi thread on the end of each spoke.
Our machine is capable of cutting carbon steel, stainless steel, titanium, anodized, and powder coated spokes. Butted and aero spokes can be cut and threaded on the full diameter portion of the spoke. Please be sure to thoroughly clean your machine and dies after cutting and threading powder coated spokes.”
