Thanks PMC , that is a great price and also made in Australia . Always got special dies taps and reamers made in Switzerland , but if I can get that in Australia in H6 tolerance and top quality ,I would be mad not to get them here. I will contact them . Thanks again. That forum still works great when you are looking for the impossible sometimes.

Try Capital Cutting Tools located in Hamilton, Victoria. They show a M27x1 on their price list (taper, inter or bottoming) for about $140ea. They may have ex stock, if not usually a few days to grind and ship out, from memory they have blanks pre-made ready to grind to your requirement.

Hi Hoony , its for a prototype cartridge , I am limited with room , so I cant use 28 . I have 25, 26 and 28 x 1 , but not 27 . They are very expensive to buy as a special order . If we dont go ahead with the project or change it to another pitch , it will be another pricey item lying around forever . DC Swiss  could  make a die +tap  for $1850 , so I am trying my luck here first .I am not getting any younger , therefore much of those special tools will go to scrap one day , unfortunately .

Somebody asked what H6 means . H is the tolerance in size and the numbers are the finished surface .

Yeah it was just  a box of chrystals and salts LOL. Reminds me of those Answer Roosts boosts. They made big claims but all that was inside was a single 10cent resisistor (i took a few apart)
