Jack,

http://www.tapdie.com/html/metric_taps_fine_or_taps_metri.html

They don't have M7 dienuts or dies, but they have M7 x .075 taps (metric fine pitch) - any good?

May be worth emailing your requirements to them - maybe they can help.

Dienuts are very handy for cleaning threads up in confined spaces.
Cylinder head studs and 'U' bolts are a good example where a die holder would foul the other studs(s).

One way round this is the make a die holder from an old nut and convert it to a dienut.

No drawings, it's a simple job to go from an old nut and a given die to get what's in the photo.
