    Got the screws from Roton today, man they packed them well. They used a heavy wall cardboard tube that had wood plugs on the ends, the plugs where held in with some big staples, first time I had to open a package with hand tools

    I used a hack saw.
    I used a hammer & cold chisel to get in behind the staple.



    OK I'm getting ready to order the ball nuts. But what the hell is .938 – 16 UN threading? That's whats listed for the threaded end of the ball nut.

    They also have a round mounting flange listed with that threading, but damn they're more then the ball nut. Or should I just bite the bullet and buy these flanges since they have the right threading?

    Hello Coils,
    That rare thread is also a 1919 BMG barrel thread !!!! It is also very close to a 24-1.5mm metric thread.

    OH thanks for saying it's a "rare" threading VD I never seen a threading listed like that before, at least I have an idea now.



    VZ don't go out of your way to find it, but if you do have it I'd like to borrow or rent it from you, if not try to remember where you got it from so I can get one. I'm not in a rush for it, still need to get the metal to make the mounts with yet.

    Am I converting this right, it looks like it's a 15/16x16 thread? Hell them damn taps are seventy bucks!

    Hello Coils,
    Yes, I do believe that you are correct in that 15/16 x 16 inch designation.

    Marshall Tool & Supply Corp here in Phoenix lists that tap as Model 2144 0386 @ $42.49 in my old 2009 catalog. (PH: 800-331-0213).

    That 15/16-16 thread can also be single pointed on a lathe.

    Hello VD,
    Thanks for letting me know I was right on the size.
    And I was thinking of the lathe too, but I haven't tried to cut any threads on it yet and don't know if I would be able to. Also haven't really had to urge to try threading yet, but this might be a good enough reason to.

    And thanks for the info about Marshall Tool.



    VZ,
    Thanks for the eBay link, I did look on there but only in the US, those two are in GB and I got a little excited seeing the price, but it comes out to about $38 shipped. I just found the tap at ENCO for $40 + S&H. Also I should get it from them, it might help the economy a little.
