Triumph TR6 - Tap & Die set
Any leads on a reasonable quality / priced tap & die set that features fine threads for our cars ?
Most of the ones I've seen are for metric and/or coarse and fine..none for fine only.
|Charlie- get one w/ fine and course. You'll use both you will be surprised.|
|Hi..Charlie..Keep a eye on the Candain tire flyer...They have a set that comes on sale often for around the $50. I have not found it missing any tap or die that I have needed.|
|Rick agrees with Peter|
|Thanks Guys !|
|do you want something that cuts new threads or cleans up existing ones 2 different tools, thread chaser from snap on that does imperial and metric about $120.00|
|General clean up and fixing threads slightly damaged at ends....the Crappy Tire one will be ok I'm sure...If needed I have a friend able to make new bolts etc.|
|Hi..Charlie....Don't forget you are lucky to have one of the best source of nuts, bolts, clips, snaps, etc, in your own town..."SPAINER"....what they carry in fasteners is amazing|
If CT doesnt work out, try JEGS on-line, great stuff, lots of choice and good pricing
I picked up a basic set for $60 at CT...seems to work fine.
All the higher priced stuff there only deals with course thread and metric
