    I need to make a 'Modified Case'........

    I need to make myself a modified case for a 22PPC.
    What I am talking about is what Hornady sells as the 'LNL Modified Case.'
    My question is can someone tell me what threads are used for this tool?
    I believe it is a 5/16-36 tpi thread but I am not certain. I need to know the thread before I make the modified case.
    Thanks...... pg

    It's a 5/16 36tpi, or at least that is what they used to be back in the Stoney Point days. Yeh, that is not a standard tap, some of the big tool houses that carry NFF Thread taps might have it. Try Bass Tool online, or MSC.

    I suspect that tap will cost over $30. If you have a lathe, you could single point it........jackie

    I bought mine from MSC; listed in the special taps section. I made a 338 Edge today. I have a six jaw adjust-tru chuck and I just put the case in the chuck jaws and drill and tap.

    Thanks Jackie and woodbutcher.
    I am headed to Rex Supply in the morning to see if they have the tap in stock.
    It is listed in their catalog under 'special threading' at $10.95........ but 'ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST.'
    I just was not sure of the thread so thanks for confirming it is a 5/16-36.
    If Rex does not have it, Bass Tool may.

    And yes, I do have a lathe but I do not have an internal tool small enough to get in a 5/16 inch hole.

    Yes I do.
    I found I can get the tap and the die from Production Tool Supply for $11.70 each.
    I am still going to try Rex this morning to see if they have it in stock.
    If not, then I will order it from PTS. Thanks......

    Perry, we have been doing business with Rex since the late 60's, they have been at that same location over on Milby at Harrisburg since I was in High School, and that has been 44+ years ago.

    Yes indeed Jackie.
    I first went into Rex in 1960 when they had a small location on Dumble St. in the East End.
    I worked for Bruce Bristol Motorcycles at the time and Bruce bought from Rex.
    I got my first set of Proto tools from them at the time. A few years later they moved to the present location

    By the way, I went by Rex this morning and picked up the tap . They had 3 in stock.
    I also ordered the die (I do not need it, but when I buy a tap I like to also have the die) which will be coming my way soon.

    I made the 22PPC modified case this morning when I got home.

    Yes, from what I gather, you do machanist work in the shipping industry.
    I am far from being a mechanist, but always wanted to become one.
    Back when I was young, about the only way to get machanist training was to get a job with one of the railroads.
    I wound up in engineering and construction instead.
    I have a South Bend 10K and a Bridgeport mill at home, along with Mig and Tig machines.
    So I putter around with some metal working, when I need something made.
    I live on the south side of Houston by Relient Stadium.
