510 thread taps
« on: November 01, 2013, 02:52:23 PM »

got a bad gua from FT and i cant get any 510 atties to fit and fire on it apart from a very old vivi nova, and even thats a really tight fit. the problem is that my atties screw in so far and then stop about 1.5 - 2mm from sitting flush on my mod, and dont make a connection. am i right in thinking that a bottom(blind) tap could clean up and possibly extend the threads further down the mod and if so what size tap should i use.any advise would be really helpfull, thanx, gruff

on the inside of the thread, there's a plastic piece - that can be retracted and your 510 will screw all the way down.

it may be tight to move initially, but it will budge.

if you're determined to go with the tap, then this should do the trick - Hand Tap M7 x 0.5

whats the best way to retract the piece of plastic. tried pushing it down with a small screwdriver but theres still no movement on it.

i pulled mine back using grips/pliers - it was a bugger to move initially, but did eventually shift.

Is that plastic insert threaded into the head or just friction fit?

i believe its press fitted, but has taken on-board the pattern of the thread - with that in mind, it will be worth working it out by an unscrewing motion.

no joy, been tinkering but only seem to be progressively wrecking the innards of the insulator. looks like im gonna have to bite the bullet, buy a tap and either fix it or f*ck it. as i said, ive got an old vivi  running on it and its sitting flush, but nothing else will screw down on it, 1.5 - 2 mm gap, so it must be the threads,right?
