Thread: 12 x 2 mm acme (trapezoidal) tap
Before spending nearly £50 on Fleabay has anyone got a 12 x 2 mm Right Hand trapezoidal tap I can buy, beg, borrow, or steal?
Alternatively does anyone know a cheaper source. I want to make some Delrin anti-backlash nuts for my SX2 P mill project.
I have seen several times where people have taken a spare piece of this type of leadscrew and made it into a tap for Delrin. Certainly costs less and for a one or two off, it should last very well.Art

Russel why not try the heating of the lead screw method over at CNC zone?If the nagging gets really bad......Get a bigger shed:naughty:
Those are cheap prices for trapeizoidal taps...tempted to get myself one!Neil...
