Angry *&%$#*(@@$%#.........

please tell me who sells 6.4 X .5 MM tap for Bock pens. Classic nib is out of htem, Victor does not have them, Ace-Lowes, Home Depot, Virginia America, E Bay, Etsy, Amazon --- all do not have that size.

Where the heck are you guys finding these metric tap and die sets without having to refinance your house to afford them??

Hmmm ... 6.4 x .5mm ?? I can't seem to find that exact size mentioned...

Did a search and came up with SilverPenParts.com ...

Tap/Dies M6.5

There's some 6.5 x .5mm and a 6.4 x .6mm threading tools available through there.

If you mean 6.5x.5, silverpenparts.com has them. He does have the 6.4x.6 die and says he doesn't plan on ordering more when they run out.
Edit in: looks like Skie and I were typing at the same time.

Heh .... yeah, I'm sneaky like that, Monty ... :)



Also ... keep an eye out for Group Buys (see, Monty's the Group Buy Coordinator) and pick them up when you can ... it costs a pretty penny for a company to tool up just to make a SINGLE tap and die set, so when we do a group buy we try to order like 20 - 25 or more all at once and spread the savings around some .... :)

Hmm ... you sure you're reading that size right, John?


Everybody and their cousin (me included) cannot find a 6.4 x .5mm tap or die anywhere ...

And several sites I've seen list the measurements for the #5 Bock as 6.4 x .6mm... just wondering! :)
