  • Looking for 7/32 tap

    My wife gave me an antique tap and die set for Christmas. All the small taps are fractional. Unfortunately, the 7/32"-24 tap is broke. Does anyone have one to sell or trade for a 7/32-32 ?

    I have one, but I'm hanging on to it for dear life, every once in a while I encounter an older (pre 1898) firearm that comes in for repair that has a 7/32 screw in it. I also have the die for it thankfully.

    BUT, I can tell you where I got mine, and for $9.50 plus shipping, they will sell you one too!

    Victor Machinery Exchange, here's a link to the page with that tap on it.

        Thanks for the link. I am hoping to find a vintage tap to match the set.

          I THINK that the 7/32"-24 tap was renamed #12-24. If not, then it is AWFUL close!

            7/32 x 24 is a standard Whitworth tap.

              If I did the calculation correctly, a #12 is 0.2160" in diameter. 7/32" is 0.21875". Different by 0.00275". Close, but still different enough to be different.

                I appreciate all the replies, but you are all missing the original point.
                I want to make an antique tap and die set complete. I know I can get #12 taps, I have a box full. I know I can get a new 7/32"-24 tap. I would like to find a vintage (USA Made) 7/32"-24 tap to complete the set. In case trading is on the table I have a bunch of 7/32-32

                  Whitworth and SAE are different threadforms.

                    Yes, I realise that, but no mention has been made of the thread form, just the diameter and pitch.

                      Perhaps a pic of one of the set will give us a lead on the style you are looking for?

                        Don't know 'bout you, but Bmeyer lives in the USA and so do I. Logical conclusion is that he didn't get an antique/vintage/old Whitworth tap and die set for Christmas.

                              You might know that but some of us don't, no location given top right not even continent.
