Thread: Thread diameter
What die do I need to put a thread on a SS shaft,the thread is metric and has a reading of 10mm on my caliper.
I think it would be 9mm die but need to be sure before I buy one as I have seen 9.5mm ones as well.
could you clarify the dimension 9mm or 95mm you are talking about. to make a m10 thread you need a m10 die
you need to measure the thread, the TPI (threads per inch) as well as the diameter to find out what you need. At 10mm you could have either a 1.5mm thread or a 1mm thread. 9mm would not be a standard thread.
If you need die nuts send me a PM.
A 9mm(M9) is a standard thread just not very common, i know i have them on my lathe :-(If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:
M10 x 1mm is not very common either Daniel the post common would be M10 x 1.5mm.
thats what I meant to say. Just the most common or standard threads would be 6, 8 or 10. Although I do have a set of 7mm x 1mm somewhere that I used for repairing an old machine which was scrapped a while ago. One day they might come in useful again.
10mm x 1mm or metric fine I come across alot. It seems to be quite common on some machines.
I went through every screw tap in imperial sizes before i found out, it was real pain because i was not expecting a 9mm thread. His thread would be a 10 though as thread itself would be just under.
