10mm. threads cleaned
Hi Chris and Ari, I have a question about the Installation of the square head M8 screw into J1 turret platform. The hole has no thread, shall I tab it? I think so but before doing something irreversible I wanted to ask :-) ... Please tell me what is right to do, thanks
thank you for the pictures and feedback on the tapped holes. Good advice on the sprockets - I'll see if I can find pre-tapped sprockets. Right now that was the lowest cost option that I was able to find but I will keep looking. thanks again.
M3 0.5 tap, lots of plastic wrap to protect bearings.
Used wire in the blind hole to measure depth then added tape on the tap.
Chris when you are here. I would recommend you drill and tap the 13 tooth sprocket and bump the kit price a few dollars. I would guess many people in the next 40 kits would have to order a metric tap set.
Thats the correct screw. I will review with the vendor and check the next batch. I fully test assembled one unit but didnt see this. Please let me know what else you find. I appreciate you keeping me updated on any issues and I will make sure to make corrections.
yes M3x10 (10mm overall, about 8mm of thread). I am wondering if hole is not threaded deep enough. Wont have access to metric tap till next week to test.
Are those M3x10 flat head screws? They appear longer. Is it possible I made an error in the hardware kit? Please let me know as soon as possible so I can correct any mistakes.
