I have a 16mm ball screw with damaged thread.

what I'm after is the pitch size so I can get a thread file is the pitch .75 and M12??

It's M12x1 ... and I've got an M12x1 tap and die so just bring it along and we can sort it :)

A small triangular file will fit standard metric threads perfectly for clean up/repair purposes.

Better still, use a PRESTO rethreading file if you can find one.

Thank you Jazz but I will take it with me to Jonathan's next weekend when I pick up my Y-axis material and pump fixings
