Ok… it’s very possible I’m looking to attempt something that can’t
be done… But I thought it would be worth a shot to ask the
friendly people here at Orchid. I want to take some sterling silver
tubing and sterling silver wire and form the wire so it screws into
the sterling tubing. Can I do this? I’ve searched all over to find
out just what a tap and die set actually does, and have had no luck.
How does one go about getting the threads on wire that will fit
into the threads of tubing??? I’m desperate for an answer… I hope
someone can help me.

Ok… I tried another search on the forum and found some information
that I think might help. So here’s my second question - is there
anyone in the Phoenix (or surrounding areas) that would be willing
to give me a short course on threading and using the tap and die
sets? I’m only going to be using one size tubing for a large
project I’m working on. So if I could get some instruction (paid,
of course), I would greatly appreciate it.
