M12.0x0.8 Die

M13.0x0.8 Plug tap

If above 12, I would get the three respective bottoming taps

Thanks so much,

I am also reaching out to this company to see what kind of pricing we can get for these taps:

Bock size 6 nib housings: 7.9mm x 0.6mm
Bock size 5 nib housings: 6.4mm x 0.6mm
Heritance, Schmidt & Jowo #5 fountain pen nib housings: 6.5mm x 0.5mm

Once I get a price quote I will inform everyone of what it would be.

Just so everyone is aware of what is going on, I asked the vendor if we could mix and match the taps by size to meet the required quantities, and they said that we could not that is why I am showing them separately.

When is your projected cut off date for taking orders?

Not intending to hurry this up, although I know some folks may could use them yesterday, it has been my observations that it takes an average of two to three weeks for this type of post to be seen and responded to - by all who are really interested.

My real purpose is to see if we have time to wait few more days and see if we can make those 11's into 12's, or jump the 5s up to at least a 6. Still it would be questionable for me at the price for 6. The prices for 12 are much more reasonable for me

Any reason you're not getting a price on the JoWo #6 taps (JoWo 7.4 x 0.5) Elwin?

I understand they are available from SilverPenParts but thought it would maybe one to include?

Count me in for a set of M13 taps/die at a final quantity of >6. I'm looking at the finances for the M12/14's.

The reason that I did not include the Jowo #6 taps were that I did not have that information. Now that I do, I will asked about that size also.

The timeline for these items from the original post is 3-5 weeks depending on quantity; dies in 4 – 6 weeks depending on quantity from when the order is placed. The price quote is good until 7/31/2017.

At this time, I do not know if we can get a good deal on them. I hope to have that information tomorrow.

I will keep everyone informed.

Elwin,

Not sure about anyone else, but I don't know if it's neccessary to have a group buy for the Jowo #6 unless we were to hit the 10+ mark since Silver pen parts sells them at a reasonable price of $32, plus we would be supporting him. Problem is that he only has a limited amount I suppose.

I'm in for Bock 5 and 6 if we hit 12.
I already bought the Jowo from Silver pen parts.
Damn, better go sell something to cover my spending habit.

Cmiles1985,

Do you mean you want one each of the M14, M13, M12, and M11 taps (2) and dies?
I definitely worded that wrong. I meant the feed dies!

One each of Bock #5, #6 and Jowo #5, #6 taps (depending on price point) plus my M11 die and plug and bottom taps.

If we get to 10+ price, I would go for Bock #5 & #6 and Jowo #5 & #6 (plug and bottom taps) in addition to my previous post for M12/M14 taps and dies.

Dan, can you be more specific as to what you are wanting to order. All of the triple lead tap and die prices are on the first page and the prices for the #5 & 6 Bock, and #5 Jowo are on either page 5 or 6, and the price for the #6 Jowo are on this page.

On page 6 there is a current standing for the triple lead tap and die quantities. I have not gotten a count of the Bock and Jowo taps put together yet.

Sorry Elwin, I already posted about the triple starts, but I would be interested in the Jowo #5 and #6 taps, and possibly the Bock 5 and 6, depending on how this whole thing goes down. Thank you for doing all of this for the group, I'm sure everyone appreciates it as much as I do.

I will be out of town for the unforeseeable future due to the death of my brother. I have to go take care of all of the arrangements for him. I will try to get an update posted when I can.

It appears that we will be go for this group buy. I will be sending everyone a PM with a spreadsheet to fill out with what they want to order. In the meantime, here is where we are at with the quantities:
View in Gallery

It appears that for most of the taps we are in the 12 to 23 range (m14, m13, & m12) and the same for the dies as well.

The M11 tap and die set are in the 6 to 11 range.

For the Bock and Jowo taps we are short of the 10+ to get the lowest price.
