    Screw Boxes..........?

    I'm looking for a screw box, I want to make some threaded parts, some clamps maybe as well.


    I've found >> THIS << one at Woodcraft the box and tap for $37


    I know the Beal stuff is good, I have the tap for my lathe, but I'm not really excited about using the router to do this job, routers are messy and dusty and my space is small, if I can get well cut screws that are quiet and not so messy, that seems to be a win-win in my book.

    I did find this page........

    >> HERE << in the UK that shows the same one as Woodcraft has, but also a better quality unit......



    But only in metric, the 19mm unit is 174GBP or about $287 USD plus shipping

    Anyone have any other leads?

    Cheers!

    My experience with Beall tools, I wouldn't even look at any others. I have wanted to buy a beall tap and die just haven't had the right project to justify it. Maybe when I build my workbench and want to make my own vise and wooden screw. ( I just googled tap and dies for wood to get these).

    I have a set of four sizes I could loan you.
    I had two sets but either gave away or sold to someone. I think the someone was here.

    Not sure if that helps with shipping though.

    I have the Woodcraft one. I believe it comes in sizes up to 1-1/2.

    Lubricate well and take your time. Makes good threads. You may have to make a minor adjusement.
