Metric tap and die set?

Post by Raven » Wed Jul 16, 2014 6:52 pm

Does anyone have a metric tap and die set I could borrow? I need to fix a slightly mangled suspension shock mount.

I don't have a set, but I have two sizes.
One @ M12 - 1.25, and the other M4 - 1.25.
Are you just dressing the threads, or are you actually re-tapping? I also have Helicoil inserts for the M12.

If there is a fine patina of rust on it, then yep, probably mine.

I suppose dressing, they aren't ruined, just a little mangled. I'm gonna just replace the bolt, but I want to clean up the threads on the car body.
