  • 10-24 threads

    I am a new be with this – is a pipe thread die a 10-24 – size 10 (3/16”) with 24 threads per inch? I did not see this on the site below – just says pipe thread. I have a 10-24 female knob I will need to insert 1/2" long stainless steel rod into.

    Thanks for your help on this,

    I don't know if this will answer your question or not but maybe this NPT chart will.

      10-24 is a bolt/screw size, for a #10 wire, sized bolt, considered the coarse thread, 10-32 is the fine thread

      it is a stand size for small bolts/ machine screws, #10, #8, #6, is very common, even #4 is not that uncommon,

      this chart is for drills and taps but there the SAE bolt and machine screw standard size.

        Both of these answers are very helpful. I couldn't find that info anywhere.

        I'm wanting to thread stainless steel rod 1/2" long to fit into a female 10-24 knob.

        Can this be done with the 300?

          the answer is absolutely not

          but the solution is very simple.

          buy some 10-24 ss screws and shear them off with an electricians wire crimper with the threaded screw shear built in. i use them all the time on small screws to cut to length. although the ss will be a harder screw to shear, it should not damage the cutter in that size. you might also be able to find short sections of ss all thread or better yet a ss set screw that's already 1/2'' long with a recessed allen socket.

          i believe 1/4'' rod is the smallest bolt die they make and i don't believe they make one for stainless that threads rod.

            i have a hunch we are all being played by poundcake

            all it takes is a little old reading of his post and you'll see what i mean.

            but in the mean time i will just leave my original post as is so others can see how it plays out.

            time will tell and so will his next post

                If you think you need to do it under power, clamp the die in a vise and the rod in a 1/2 drill, dip the rod in the proper lubercant, and feed in to the die,

                    you'll need to come up with some way to keep the rod feeding straight through the die else you will have a piece of scrap metal when you are done.
