    Default Old dies.

    Still clearing out dad's stuff and I found this container of old dies. All covered in crud, 70 appear ok, 16 damaged, but may be usesable. Free if anyone can use them. They will be BSW, BSF and maybe some UNC or UNF as well. Message if you want precise dimensions.
    Rgds,
    Crocy.

    Pity you're soooo far away, I'd have taken the lot. Postage would cost both of my kidneys.
    Any idea of what they fit???
    Was planning on possibly heading up that way next year, if you've still got them???

    To grow old is mandatory, growing up is optional.

    Hi Crocy,

    Those dies are very useful, even if you haven't got a die head. I've used a couple of mine as threading tools. You do need to set the lathe up to cut the right thread though.
    Best Regards:

    Plz send a PM/DM rather than sharing your phone number over the forum posts.
