      I KNOW I read it somewhere........but can't find it now

      Have the info below but need to know what the screw pitch is, are all 2mm taps created equal?
      Local hobby shop has 2mm but not K&S 2mm Tap For Pocher Screws Question .

      It also states below from prior thread that 2mm is all you need.... is that pretty much the rule for all Pochers?
      Thanks

      K&S 2mm Tap For Pocher Screws Question

      2.5 MM 461 Tap 466
      3 MM 462 Tap 467
      4 MM 463 Tap 468
      5 MM 464 Tap 469


      The K&S 2mm Tap For Pocher Screws Question stock number for the 2mm tap is #465, and for the 2mm die is #460. These two are really all you need.

    From what Ive seen the pitch is the same but I hesitate to say its a rule of thumb. I use the K&S 2mm Tap For Pocher Screws Question tap & die for Pocher stuff but really Ive mostly switched over to the correct scale hardware Ive got on line here.

    Metric thread is all the same, unless stated otherwise.

    So M2 is M2, unless they say "M2x0,2

    Actually with these small scales that is not happening often. Wheel nuts of 1:1 2mm Tap For Pocher Screws Question cars usually are coming in a wide variety: M10x1, M10x1,2, M12x1, M12x1,2, etc. But all that is larger.

    All Pochers use the same M2 bolts basicly.

    I have found the Pocher threads are M2 x 0.4. This is a standard metric M2 thread with a 0.4 pitch. The tap drill size is 1.60mm.

    Picked up a M2 (2mm 0.4) tap with 2 different size drill bits included out of the model railroad department at the LHS 2mm Tap For Pocher Screws Question for $12.

    They had other metric sizes but I did not know what other sizes I might need down the road with the Pocher Fiat and Alfas.........any thoughts on what other sizes I should get?

    Thanks

    Don't think you need other sizes. Havent seen other sizes on the Bugatti, but some M4 and M8 stuff, which did not need to be cleaned up, so save your money for other stuff.

    Hope this little bit of ISO Metric Coarse Thread info helps that I copied from a Small Engineers Pocket Book. In case anyone is wondering what ISO stands for it's the International Standards Organisation

    Outside Dia_________ Thread Pitch________ Tapping Drill Size______Clearance Drill Size
    1.6 _______________0.35 _______________1.25________________1.65
    1.8 ______________ 0.35 _______________1.45 _______________1.85
    2.0 _______________0.40 _______________1.60 ________________2.05
    2.2 _______________0.45 _______________1.75 ________________2.25
    2.5 _______________0.45 _______________2.05 ________________2.60
    3.0 _______________0.50 _______________2.50 ________________3.10
    3.5 _______________0.60 _______________2.90 ________________3.60
    4.0 _______________0.70 _______________3.30 ________________4.10
    4.5 _______________0.75 _______________3.80 ________________4.60
    5.0 _______________0.80 _______________4.20 ________________5.10
    6.0 _______________1.00 _______________5.00 ________________6.10

    N.B. There are also ISO Metric Fine Threads that my chart shows starting at 8.00 mm dia.

    I hope that this little chart is found useful.
