Anyone around the Dublin area have an M14 and/or an M20 tap they could lend me for an evening?? Can't really justify spending 50/60 snots for a one off job. Standard pitches if possible but not bothered as I can source the bolts to suit.

Cheers.

J.

Ok, I have managed to get my oily paws on an M20, all I need now is an M14. Come on folks, dig deep, I'm getting desperate... even more desperate than I normally am! :shades:

:) That's funny Busman, cos usually when I'm on the M50 all I can think about is getting meself an M16!! :lol:

M14 or M20 are metric taps, i.e. the 14 and 20 roughly equates to 14mm or 20mm diameter, as in the outside thread diameter - a tap is used for making a threaded hole.

So I'm guessing you don't have an M14 tap then Busman?? :ph34r:

DOES NOBODY HAVE AN M14 TAP!!!???? DO I HAVE TO SQUANDER MY HARD (ok, EASILY) EARNED CASH!!!???

What if I 'rented' the tap?? - I'll offer that half eaten mars bar, the warm can of coke, and the now gone off packet of Meanies! :shades:

m14 about the only size we don't have in the workshop. M14 tap at radionics (herberton road) part number 248-7279 18.39 plus vat Radionics

You could buy a cheap set for 50 / 60.

Thanks Kildareman - Radionics, shower of rip-off merchants!! <_<

I've priced one in Tucks at 14 snots, or Farnell at 9 - just didn't want to have to go and order one etc etc etc... Guess I'll have to after all. Missed out on one on Ebay yesterday, went for 1.50

Know what you mean, but for me I can order in the morning from Radionics & receive parts early afternoon. We tend to need things v quickly here.
Farnell are great but don't hold stock in Ireland. Where's Tucks?

Actually, hold on a tick - just spoke to Farnell, they won't entertain any order unless it's over 35!!!!

[b]Me: "So, what do you propose I do?"

[b]Useless Farnell Gimp: "Just order enough to cover the 35 minimum and include the tap"

[b]Me: "Right, so you want me to order loads of extra useless shit that I won't use?"

[b]Useless Farnell Gimp: "That's one way of putting it"


Talk about a bunch of fookers!!!??? :angry:

Tucks is in Parkwest, www.tucks.ie I think. Pretty good, but don't accept credit card or laser so it's a bit awkward if you need something quickly and don't have an account.

Sorted folks - you can all rest easy now in the knowledge that I got my taps.

Thanks for all the concerned emails, texts, and late night phone calls, you all have hearts of gold - I must admit, the morning vigil held by some of the Biker.ie members truly brought a tear to my beady little eye.

Stig, Rob, you can end your hunger strike outside McQuillans, and PaulG, take that TNT vest off, we'll forgive Farnell.... just this once.

:ph34r:

Well if you had needed anything up to M12 I have a set at home.

Looks like Radionics aren't the only robbing bast***s out there then. Wasn't aware of the min order with Farnell, but then the last order I placed with them was in the region of 2K :w00t:

Thanks KM, I have a geansai load of them at home as well, but only up to M8 or so. At least I know who to call next time I need something ^_^ Cheers!

Yeah, Farnell might be 'cheaper' than RS, but they're scabby baxtards obviously. They didn't always have that 35 "Robbin thief" policy of theirs! :kwasny:

Paul, ta for the visuals!! :unsure:
