    Default WTB buffer tube tap

    Looking for a used buffer tube tap buy or rent even trade !!

    I'm almost done with my DSA casting and just need to do the tube and pick up a 1/8 end mill for the bolt hold open.

    My paper weight is alot lighter now

    Hello junkmanted,
    That tap is a 1 & 3/16-16 special inch tap. A supplier such as Marshal Tool will have it. Enco, Grizzly, Harbor Freight, and the local hardware stores won't have it.

    If you have access to a lathe you could make your own tap from a piece of good steel (4130 cms...). Since it is to tap aluminum (7075 T-6 usually) your tap need not be hardened for a one time use, just sharp.

    Sorry I don't have one of those taps.
