Amen. Nothing like hardened steel chunks embedded in a nearly finished part.

Tapping 6-32 in steel gives me the hives.

6-32 is HUGE! Go for a 1-72 or 0-80. I do not miss those days!

Use to do 0-80s with a Makita! LOL! (tiny micro switches for cnc stops)

The problem with 6s is not the size , its the minor/major percentage.
