Model T Ford Forum: Forum 2017: *Wanted* Older Style Left Hand Tap NS 5/8" 16

I would like to build another set of roller dies for my Niagara bead Roller. The Rollers have both a right and a left threaded rollers. I have the right threaded tap already. Does anyone have a left 5/8" 16 left tap in their stash.
This is also known as the NS or UNS standard probably pre 1939.
Thanks

Probably get more "action" here than on the classifieds, I wouldn't call this the "wrong spot."

Fred, that's a very odd size, never seen any listing as such, 5/8" LHT in 14 or 18, yes and still available new but 16 doesn't come up on any of my old machine shop listings.

Try: Kromhard Twist Drill Co. in Akron Ohio. Phone: (330) 535-7129 If they don't have it, you can't get it. When restoring my "S" they had the odd size taps and dies that I needed.

If you're making roller dies you must have a lathe. Come on, man up and single point those threads. ;)

Yes that's an odd size for sure. I don't feel very confident about cutting inside threads this small.
Last time on the lathe I kept getting chattering and messed the project up big time. Thanks Bruce I'll try Kromhard for sure.
