    Yeah,
    Larry explained that. Like I said in the second post (#5) I have never seen one, did not know they even existed. Maybe part of the OP's problem if he was using a wrench, or not.

    Thanks for that Larry. The handful of hex dies that I own looked like they would have been good enough to thread with. Just never have seen a hex die stock. Always worked at shops that had screw...

    Seems like a hex die would be problematic getting it started. What are you going to drive it with? A shallow socket, a box end wrench or worse yet a crescent wrench? I think a split round die held in...

    Have you looked under the crud for lettering or logos? Might be clues there.

    We make some parts out of 464, I think it is 3/4 to full hard. It is non leaded and machines with more difficulty than 360 but not terrible. 464 would be a piece of cake compared to 954. The size we...

    Typo or mental slip. I do not remember now. Should have been 10-24 and since the 4 and 8 keys are not that close a typo is unlikely. Thanks, I will fix the original.

    My understanding is one starts gaining immunity/resistance to the C19 within a day or so of being vaccinated. Maximum immunity would be a short time after the 2nd vaccine. The few (part of the 5%)...
