    Hi Clive
    Tar very much for the thought. Your question is a good one. I was looking to remove them but that may only be if something fails and the job needs breaking down. I will not dismiss opening the hole up slight larger and getting out the epoxy. Thanks for your help and waves of thought!

    Hello tar very much for the thought I will give what you say some consideration.
    Cheers Steve

    Hello Komatias,
    Thank you for your reply. I realize I am not on the direct road for success, with the following
    small diameter, shallow blind hole, in 316 no less, limited knowledge and wanting to thread mill it. All that said I may have a go at it.
    Thanks
    Steve

    Hi Neil,
    I am not sure so don't quote me on it but I think I got my ones from J&L. I notice you mention thread mills and good sport I notice you don't mention 316 in the same sentence!
    I was watching one of your videos earlier in the inspiration thread you build looked to work out a treat for you.
    Cheers

    Hi Mike,
    Yes thanks for the thought. I will certainly have practise before picking up the finished parts. The parts are for finishing off nicely m12 stud that protrudes a flat surface. Basically, just a blanking cap.
    Many thanks
    Steve

    Cool! Was just adding an alternative to the mix with the ground taps. I will be doing some thread milling this weekend but on aluminimu pipe with fine threads M18x1 for my brothers project. Will post findings

    Best of luck with that mate. Who know if my findings from my efforts are not too shameful I may post them! After this little job I hope to start a small router build!

    Cheers Steve, so far its all good... Just need to get a week on it to finish it off and start the mounting frame...

    Stainless is a bugger as unless you use some form of lube the threads gall and snag when tightening so I can imagine it's a bugger to tap and threadmill!

    Steve i know this is a silly question but is it not possible to measure the stud protrusion , remove the stud and machine the protruding length from the end ?

    Yes mate, it is a bugger in my book especially when not best geared up for it!
    Congrats on your build happy CNCing
