I am building pasture dragger with wheels on it to spread the horse poop in the pasture. For an axle I used 5/8" rod, I was going to cotter key the wheels on when someone on the site suggested going with nylock nuts. It was an excellent idea. Went and bought a 5/8 thread die. It took for ever to get the thing started. I was able to thread both sides of the axle but it took a while to get it going. Is there a trick to making it easier to get the thread cutting die started. I was using WD 40 as a lubricant. Any imput would be appreciated.
Still in the learning process of working with metal.
