Would it be possible to hob a quadruple thread on a hobber using a single point tool like you would use to thread in a lathe. This thread would have a 1" lead and a 1/4" pitch and is only about 2 1/2" long. We have cut threads like this on a cnc lathe before but with the lead being so fast, you have to have a lot of relief angle on the tool on the leading side and the tool does not hold up well.
