Trying to Machine That Adapter Harder Than I Thought

More lessons learned.   Cutting works fine.  Baking the carriage up is what is pulling the workpiece from the chuck.just enough drag to pull it out.

Better solution to my problem: buying an M29x1.0  die to put an external thread on the ends of the tube so it screws into the diagonal. To my shock and surprise,  this size is about $20.  It is 65mm diameter,  but I already have a site holder that size.
