    I have often wondered about doing something similar on a lathe with a cutter like that in a tool post grinder. I guess I will just go buy myself a CNC mill instead. LOL!!!

    I've heard this called threadmilling. The appeal is that if the cutting tool breaks off it is a lot easier to get it out of a hole compared to a tap.

    Yes but think of all the trips you would save running to the hardware for the right size bolts!!
