      I bought these as they have a short 5/16-18 1/2" shank There's a void space in the casting behind where I expect to mount the ball and I thought a short shank would be better.

      These 3 piece tap sets are very nice in that they have the taper, plug and bottom taps. I had a little 8-32 job to do a couple of weeks back and I bought a set specifically for the bottom tap but it turns out to be a really neat setup.

      SARDG: Did you chuck the press up in a drill press or just 'wing it' with a drill motor? I really don't want to cart the press all the way to the garage to drill one hole.

      So, everything will be here Tuesday so I'll take a break on this project. I have to study for a Driving License test next Thursday. Oh, joy...

      You are costing me money here, F106. :D My dad had a tool and die business many decades ago, but his leftover taps and dies are running out and wearing out... and breaking occasionally. :oops: And so I must add to Jeff Bezos' fortune.

      Although my drill press is only about 5' from my reloading presses, I did not and can't see removing and moving a reloading press to the drill press. I've just covered areas with shop towels/cardboard/painter's tape where neccessary to avoid metal shavings in undesired places, and drill and tap in place. Now... taking a toolhead to the drill press may be a different story - except that I won't be doing that either, and disturbing my die setup.

      It’s not like the scope will be under any stress. And if it was you can also put a nut behind it. Or just drill a hole and put a nut behind it.
