    Drilling and Tapping...

    I could use a little help and maybe there are some metal-heads on the forums.

    I need to drill out a hole, enlarge it by about 2mm and, since it was originally threaded, replace the threads.

    The size someone else has used for the same project is #2 BA (4mm i think), which is a British size. Im having trouble finding American equivalents.

    And worse yet, where to even find such taps to purchase.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Tried the M series for taps? M4 for example.
    Old Systems retired due to new car
    New system at design/prototype stage on BeagleBoard.

    In Florida, check PEP Boys. They have a large assortment of taps. Most of them come with a drill bit.

    Thanks, I may have found someone in town who has a metal shop.

    But in any case, thanks for the link and pep boys suggestion.
