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.
Sorry, Stuck this in the wrong spot.
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.
