Half of misumi order arrived!! However just realized I need to tap 72 holes

Half of misumi order arrived!! However just realized I need to tap 72 holes to M5 thread…

:expressionless: Yea, always get misumi to tap both ends just to save time. Or you can print this out and tap yourself with a drill http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:31492

i thought it was taped…didnt even think it had to be requested

Yeah, you have to specify alterations afterward http://us.misumi-ec.com/pdf/fa/PDFViewer.html?catalog=metric2010&page=2407

dam that would have made my life so much easier now i have to use my hand drill

With the 3d printed thing I posted above, life might not be too hard. Hard but not too hard.

Wow where are 72 holes needed?

Sorry. I was trying to keep costs down. I just bought a $5 tap, a 6pack of beer, and a cap of cutting oil. By the end you get pretty fast.

Also look at this: http://youtu.be/BR85I2ILeGw

All finished broke 2 taps…

So infortanetly 2 extrusion ends will only have 3 screws =\

@Eclsnowman do you know a supplier for those 3-piece tap set? The one Tom provides is $30 for US people.

I just got a single pass 5mm tap from ebay. But you have to take it slower or they snap :wink:

Ya take it slow…or widen he holes more prior to tapping them.eventually I widened mine to about 4.5 mm then taped them with an m5 worked perfect

I forgot who mention these combined drill bit before. I’m using cheaper chinese version, and do recommend it:

Those would have cut the time in half
