Quote from: Jester on January 07, 2018, 01:54:16 PMDon't know why I never posted this, but some may find it helpful. I managed to find a thread chaser many years ago, size 4-36. Just as important, I also found the handle this die fits in. Since 4-40 is easier to buy, I have found it handy have this to run them through to ensure they fit my dials. I prefer to alter the threads on a replacement screw over running a 4-40 tap into my dial mount ports. Since it is a resize, some of the recut threads will show a loss in fullness. This has never caused me problems-- every screw I have treated this way started fine and tightened perfectly. I found this by chance at a local flea market-- one of my more useful buys.
