Not sure about the 13mm triple start. I don't know if it's 1 or 1.5.
The 12mm and under are 1"
As long a they are 1" pr 1.5" I'm okay. I was told to verify any foreign made dies as they aren't always those sizes.
I see. Just wanted to make sure you know some will be large!

Personally I hope all the taps are center drilled on the non-tap end to accept a tap guide. It's super annoying when they aren't! At least to me anyways...

After doing more research, it appears that the M11 and 12 are 1 inch, and the M13 and 14 may be 1 1/2 inch diameter.

Not sure, and will not know until Monday when I can ask about the die sizes and the tap guide hole.

Default Die Size

I have all the die from previous group buys and the M14 is 1.5" and the rest are 1.0".

There is a hole in the non threading end for a tap follower.

Anyone who is even thinking about a bottom tap (so on a translucent pen top the threads look nice and clean) should really think about jumping in, because these group buys do not come around that often and it would help bring the price down for everyone.

I would love to get the bottoming taps as well, but since I need virtually everything, I can't afford it all. Looks like I will just get the plug taps/dies that I'm wanting, along with the Bock/JOWO dies.

We only need 5 more people for the M13 to get the bottoming tap down to $48.90 and 1 more to get the M11 bottoming tap down to $49.70.

I believe the hole or crown is necessary to manufacture the taps. This company is in my back yard. They are good people and good products.

I hope so. Several of my tapco taps are not center drilled. The 7.5 x .5, both #5 Bock and #5 Jowo taps as well as my 10mm triple start plug tap.

Please add a Jowo #6 and a Bock #6 bottoming tap to my order. Maybe we're headed to the next lower cost.

Lewis, do those taps that are not center drilled have a 60 degree point on the non-tapping end? If do, then you might need to flip your tap follower inner shaft end for end. I did some research and most of them have a point on one end with a dimple or hole on the other end.
