Good grief!

Was working on another horn shaped pipe, had the stem made and threaded, all but bent, and was fitting it into the stummel and it got a bit snug with a quarter turn left to go. Backed it off and gave it another go, and snapped that bugger off clean as a whistle. Now the stem is short of what I wanted, and I've got almost half an inch of acrylic firmly ensconced in the wood about an eighth of an inch in past the edge of the hole.

I just want to throw the whole works in the fire....

Ouch! I feel your pain, Ozzie! Been there, done that myself, and it's never fun.

My best advice in these situations is to walk away and let this cool down. Then go back and reassess the damage, salvage what you can, and move on from there. Sucks to have to make a second stem, but it sounds like all is not lost!

I put the whole kit in a Ziplock bag and put it in the "box of woe". Found another rouge that spoke to me, in the same box, so I pulled it out and I'm listening...........

When I grow up I want to be like Blackhorse! Smile No mistakes sounds great!

Oh Ozzie, wat a pity. Evil or Very Mad  I suggest to leave that project aside [because you are upset] for few days even weeks and suddenly open it up when you are cool, then a new idea may show up because your mind will be clear.

Why on earth are you threading your mortise and tenons?
Wouldn't just a standard smooth tenon and mortise fit be easier sir and you could relive yourself of that happening.
Of course they too have their problems if your not set up for that sort of thing but, if ya can drill and tap straight which is a must to do if properly done then I don't see a problem with it. Wink

Guess I'm a glutton for punishment! lol! I mean, I still hand tool and sand everything. I plan on getting a lathe someday, and a tenon turning tool, but I need a shelf available for it. For the shelf I need more room in the tool barn. That in turn requires me to build on or another outbuilding.

So, I hand tool, outside when weather permits on sawhorses with a piece of scrap OSB screwed to them. Guess I'm lazy in a way.....
