14mm x 1.5 die to chase lug threads with????

I boogered up two of my wheel studs and need to chase them with a die..... does anyone know where I can purchase a 14mm x 1.5 die? All the sets I have seen stop at 12mm.

Go to the link below and scroll down to metric...

I have never ordered from them, but they appear to know what they are doing.

Hope this helps.

Re: 14mm x 1.5 die to chase lug threads with????

Might just be cheaper and easier to replace them. Depends on front or rear though. Front, pop off the rotor and they should be easy to get to, smack with a BFH and they come right out, then pull the new ones on with the nut and some washers. Much easier to get a few replacement studs than trying to find a thread chaser. Have you looked for a rethreading bar instead? I have a pair of them that are like a file with 8 different thread types per bar. You line it up with the threads and just file the nicks out with it. See if you can find those, they come in real handy.

Re: 14mm x 1.5 die to chase lug threads with????

RROSE,

Take your pick:

14mm x 1.5mm Hex Rethreading Die Carbon Steel $10.90
14mm x 1.5mm Hex Rethreading Die High Speed Steel $92.30

14mm x 1.5mm Round Adjustable Die 1.5" O.D. $35.90

ACDII, Your right, A Metric Rethreading Bar (Thread File) may be the best choice.. I can offer one tool that will correct the following metric pitches: 0.75mm, 1.0mm, 1.25mm, 1.50mm, 1.75mm, 2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm ALL for only $15.50

Delivery on the Dies: 10-14 Days
Delivery on the Thread File: 3-5 Days.

Remember, Hex Rethreading Dies are for just that: Fixing an existing thread.

A Round Adj Die is used for producing a new thread and requires a "Die Stock" to hold it during use.

Thread files only clear or clean out the buggered up portion of thread that lies within the ROOT of the thread.

Send me a P.M. if your interested. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

Regards
JR44

Make sure you use either a thread file or a chaser die but not a cutting die.

If you cut threads to fix them on a machine made thread you will weaken the stud to the point that it could break even just from torquing the wheel.

I like these.

Where did you ever here this? If the thread was cut to the correct specs on the machine, then the die will not cut any more material then ness. I could understand your reasoning if it was a bad thread or if you goofed the thread real bad. You don't weaken the stud at all. Are you reffering to a formed thread rather then a cut thread? My dad has been a tool and die maker for over 30 years, and has owned a precision maching shop for 15, and I've been around the business a long time myself and never heard anything of the sort. Like to know why you think this could weaken the stud? Def. not trying to knock you.

Re: 14mm x 1.5 die to chase lug threads with????

A lot of machined threads are rolled in high strength applications.

They are not cut. Cut threads are no where near as strong.

Basically saying what you said above, [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]





To the best of my knowledge wheel studs are rolled threads.

If I am wrong on this someone feel free to correct me.


I have done this myself, take a rolled thread bolt and run a die down it. You would be very suprised at how much metal is cut off.
