Looking for a Member with a lathe near the Lothians/Borders
« on: September 14, 2017, 02:42:19 PM »
Hi,
I need to add a fine male thread to a short piece of aluminium tube.


The thread is M54 x 0.75mm pitch about 4mm long.
The tube is 56.7od and 50.7id by about 100mm long.


Can anyone help?


You could do the work, or I can do it myself.
