Hi Leif

Many thanks for the reply, I was unable to purchase taps and dies for 9/16″ x 20 so yes I compromised and I ended up going for 9/16 x 18tpi instead as it was the closest set I could find at hand in the shop. I have been very lucky so far as Hong Kong used to be a manufacturing country, a lot of the old tool shops are still in operation and have dirty old boxes of BSC and BSF taps and dies that have been on their shelves for the last 50+ years. But alas even the rear Enfield spindle size threw them off, I am hoping to finish the bike in the next few months as I take advantage of the down time due to the virus putting a temporary halt to my business.

Regards

Stuart
