        Spray bottle is not enough volume.

          So I should use more oil to get the thread cuttings away from the teeth

              die head needs dies adjusted. easiest way is to loosen the 4 phillips screws and thread the die head onto a factory nipple a few threads to set the dies. then tighten the screws.

                  Plumber Rick is correct.

                  When you purchase new dies for the 12R heads you need to keep the screws a little loose, then thread the die head onto a piece of pipe already threaded to satisfaction. Then while the die head is still on the pipe tighten up the screws, also it is always a good idea to double check that the dies are in the correct spot ie: #1 die in #1 slot and so on.
