Has anyone Modified a case to use with the Stoney point overall length gauge. If you have what size tap did you use to cut the new threads.

Thanks

Drew, I just started to do this the other night. Drilling the case was easy but then discovered it is not the standard fine 5/16 24 thread. So I need this answer too.

I use the collet chuck on my lathe, but a drill press with carefull line up will work. any good tool co. should be able to get you the tap, I ordered mine from Travers tool co.
