Hi everyone, I’m having a hard time with this one…Does anyone know
if you can buy pre-made tap and die components anywhere? To
explain, I’m looking for a 1.5" piece of wire that has an external
thread on one end and has some kind of internally threaded piece to
go with it.
This Charles Lewton-Brain article shows exactly what I’m talking
about: http://www.ganoksin.com/borisat/nenam/other-hinge.htm (in
the “threaded hinge pin section” towards the bottom).
If I can’t find them and have to make my own, does anyone know how
difficult it is to use the tap and die tools? i.e. should I ditch
the idea instead of investing in new tools and driving myself crazy
for one project?
Thanks so much for any input,
