i have checked out msc, northern hydrualics, etc. nobody seems to have a 1 3/16 -16 tpi tap or a 1 1/8 spiral shell reamer. i am looking to save some money instead of paying 160 bucks for the set on ar15tools.com
seems like one could buy this stuff somewhere, but i cant seem to find any.

im looking for alternatives, i have access to lathe and mill.

thought about making a tap by cutting grooves in a bolt with the same threads, i dont know if i can find one of those either, let alone one hard enough.

any suggestions?

You can try:

http://www.use-enco.com/

and

https://www.travers.com/

Enco is the cheaper imported company of msc. Their stuff is fine for one or two time use and fairly inexpensive.

YEah, I bought mine from MSC. Ask them for a dead tree catalog, about 3" thick.

I found the tap on their sales page, so it was not as wallet wrenching as it could have been. That reminds me, I need to check up on that page again.

MSC isn't the cheapest, but they are the best. I have ordered stuff UPS GROUND and have had it arrive THE NEXT DAY, from Atlanta to Texas. Not sure how they do that. What I like best is their stocking... in 10 years as an MSC customer, I have had exactly one line item backordered. Otherwise, it appears like magic, very quickly.

Just a happy customer!

And it IS machinist porn!!
