    Where can I buy a tap?

    I'm in the middle of making an acrylic case, and I can't seem to find a tap small enough to fit the motherboard stands.... Any ideas on where i could purcahse one? I'd prefer to get it at a physical store and not the internet because i want to get my install done before this weekend, i'll be driving across the state. but if I must get it online, then thats alright too. thanks everyone.

    Well, maybe I am mis-understanding, but I just finished building an acrylic case and I didn't tap a single hole.... I drilled it slightly smaller (0.010 to 0.015") than the screw max dia. and screwed it in....

    Kind of self tapping....

    Try it, it worked for me.... you just have to drill just slightly smaller than screw size, or they will twist off....
