Default Re: Down and Dirty cable end

Yeeeee haaaaa I just finished making Norms cable end and it is beeeeuuuutiful.My tap hole is a little off center but still works great! It just so happens that I already had set screws just the right size.Was taught how to tap over 30 years ago. Here is a tip that is importent;once you get the tap cutting,-for every 1/4 turn,go one turn back so fillings dont build up and turn theading action to mush.and oh yes dont forget the cutting oil. Rigid nu-clear thread cutting oil is the best[mineral oil]
