Thanks for initiating this group buy. If we get to at least the 12-23 qty price, I would be interested in:
M12 plug and bottom taps and M12 die
M14 plug and bottom taps and M12 die
Plus possibly other size(s) if getting close to that 12-23 threshold.

Thanks, Jeff

I am interested in the 12 Tap AND Die if we get 12.
I prefer the bottom but it doesn't really matter.

I would rather have the 11, but no one has mentioned it yet, so I know there would not be a discount for that.

Hank, there is a price quote for the M11 tap and dies. Once I get an idea for what we can order I will pass on the counts for the M14, M13, M12, and M11 sets thing everyone can look at where we are and decide if they still want to go forward.

I'm interested at the 12+ price point. Either 12 or 14, maybe both. Plug tap & die.

Keith,

I am no expert, but here's what I know:

Regarding the m13's - all three of my triple lead Tapco taps have the lettering HS GD-5 and they are all three intermediate taps. I am not sure if the GD-4 and GD-5 is a designation for the design of the tap or something else.

If they are triple start, they should also say 3LD or triple LD., I don't have any double start, but I assume they say 2LD or double LD - something like that.

I dont understand why they would say m13 x 0.08 (I think they should say m13 x 0.8 or m13 x .8)

the m9 x.75 is a standard single start tap which I use often for my kitless work. Mostly on the nose cone threads for ballpoint and rollerball.

The m6.4 x .6 is for a bock #5 feed. Also the Schmidt rollerball nose cone

The m13 x .8 is a triple start die

The m9 x .75 is a standard die made to go with the m9 x .75 tap you have.

Keith,

I assume your m13 tap is a triple start, so you have an m13 triple lead tap and die set already.

My thought is you would want a slightly smaller tap and die set as well, in case you wanted to make a thinner bodied pen. Maybe an m11?

Elwin,

I am in for an m13 tap (plug) and die set if we reach quantity 12 or more.
