M2 Left hand thread screws

Postby Dave Osborne » January 7th, 2018, 2:55 pm

Does anyone know where to buy M2 left hand threaded screws / bolts / rod? I want to make a turnbuckle but cannot find one long enough in M2. I have a centre of the turnbuckle that will do the job and I can make the right hand threaded part OK from some normal threaded rod but the left hand thread part is proving difficult to source so I could use a screw or bolt with the head cut off. Steel, stainless or brass are OK.

Of course I can get a left hand die and cut the thread myself but is prone to bending the rod at these small diameters so I would prefer a ready made article if possible.

Cheers Dave.

Ive died lots of M2 in my job, but long lengths, and never left hand, we use expensive dies, and a 4 cutter coventary die box. Bit specialist, best of luck,

Thanks.

Nothing on Mick Reeves's site that fits the bill unfortunately. Ordered a die to try and cut it myself but if anyone knows would still be interested!!

cheers Dave.
