    CNC collet chuck suggestions

    "S26 system is great for main spindle where concentricity isn't critical." Are you talking .0001th or .01 out of concentricity? Thanks Michael

    Spark plug thread

    Thanks for the info guys. I contacted a local who makes aftermarket heads and he told me that he uses a straight bore with NO taper when he cuts them. So I really see nothing wrong with the way I did it. But was confused when my tap cut out material in the head that was already threaded.

    Spark plug thread

    I realize it didnt make it an "ideal" fit, but very little change. You can acutally start the engine with it being only finger tight, I really doubt it will pop out. Thats why I am trying to figure out the thread differences. Thanks for the help.

    Spark plug thread

    I threaded the round stock with a carbon steel die. Positive I didnt use the 1.5mm pitch because I matched it up with the pitch gauge. Used the matching tap and took a little material out of the head, which made the spark plug slightly loose(nothing major)and it threaded on just fine.

    Spark plug thread

    It does fit a motorcycle. Sparkplug threads in just fine into two different heads. But wont thread onto a threaded piece of round stock.

    Spark plug thread

    It seems like the spark plug threads have a taper to them like a NPT. It will thread on two threads on a straight cut M14x1.25 and locks up. The M14x1.25 is a finer pitch cause 2.0 is course and 1.5 is fine.

    Spark plug thread

    I am looking to find out the difference between spark plug threads and regular threads, Mostly the M14x1.25
