My Machinist book was supposed to show up today but didn't. I need to make a stud for my truck that will be 8mm 1.25 pitch. What size should I turn the rod down to before I toss a die on it? (yeah, little scared yet to thread it myself).

Hi,
Try 5/16" its .312" and 8mm is .3149"
the .0029" should be close enough.
