Question about Robert Sorby RS200KT Multi-Tip Shear Scraper
USE THE SAME HARDENED MACHINE SCREWS AS PROVIDED BY THE MANUFACTURER.
USING MACHINE SCREWS NOT PROVIDED BY THE MFG WILL MOST LIKELY VOID ANY WARANTY.
SOFT METAL MACHINE SCREWS WILL MOST LIKELY BREAK SENDING A CUTTER FLYING THROUGH THE AIR. NOT TO MENTION THE TROUBLE OF EXTRACTING THE SCREW FROM THE RUINED TOOL.
Using a cheap imported thread gage I checked the Mfg's machine screw and brought home a new metric 5mm .80 machine screw that DID NOT FIT.
I spent 20 minutes digging though my huge coffee can of machine screws finally found one that fit the tool.
Time to get out the import thread gage set again.
THE THREAD SIZE "APPEARS" to be a #10 - 32 TPI socket cap, button head machine screw.
I have not tapped a #10-32 hole in steel to test the origional Mfg screw.
I have not gone to the hardware store yet to purchase a #10-32 nut of screw to verify this machine screw size.
IF A CLEAN OILED MACHINE SCREW DOESN'T SCREW IN WITH YOUR FINGERTIPS EASILY DON'T FORCE IT OR USE IT.
YOU WILL MOST LIKELY CROSS THREAD THE TOOL.
