Thanks addiction. same rep
It is BSPP..

I believe the FrozenCPU description of using G3/8 cannot be correct...becaust G3/8 Chart says max diameter is 16.662MM
And I had done 3/4", and when checking again 3/4" = 19.05MM, which was small...so that can't be right

the closest thing from McMaster-Carr would 1/2" BSP..wtth a 20.955 max diameter.
However, after looking at the cost for 4 holes that I need to make, so not worth it.

A cheaper option would be to use 13/16" hole saw (which i have to order online only) from amazon.
That would be 20.6375 MM diameter.

I personally wouldn't use a hole saw, but maybe that is just me. Also, here is a post from Martin confirming the water cooling standard for the tap(s): Clicky. The whole thread talks about water cooling tap standards and stuff, check it out if you want to peace of mind. I trust Martin with most everything he says (since he is usually right). Good luck man. Build is looking good! I'm hoping to get my SM8 build plumbed up this weekend so I can test all the fittings/blocks before time to do custom wires and sleeving. thumb.gif

I just briefly looked at it. But I believe the discussion is around g1/4. Which is not an issue nowadays as frozen cpu sells them.
Will read again tomorrow

Yeah, it is I'm pretty sure, but G3/8" is the second standard for what we do. Hence they have a lot of G3/8" threaded fittings and what not. I'm pretty sure they both follow the same standard tapered layout (BSPP) though. Let me know how it goes though. thumb.gif

Seanimus

A even better option if you dont want to thread the holes would be a uni-bit like the below link.. Should be able to get these most anywhere and they have 2 sizes the one i showed you goes to 7/8 hole and then a bigger one that goes to 1 3/8" these are perfect for what you need to do i believe. do a search at home depot for Unibit Step Drill Bit and you will find a lot of them. They make a clean hole and they will enlarge existing holes. they also will not damage things like a hole saw dose. I HATE HOLE SAWS!!!!!!!!!

Yea hole saws are pretty abrasive but the problem with a step bit is that its not made for acyillic

I just requeted cancellation for the order from Amazon -Dewalt hole saw.

G1/4 tap is this one...from FrozenCPU which I dont need.


For Bitspower, I can't even confirm if its G1/2 or G3/8. I am thinking G1/2.


Edit:
http://www.discount-tools.com/rfn-122pp.cfm
These are taps available:
1/4-19 (G1/4) 4 .4505 - .4680 RFN-47052 $ 32.49
3/8-19 (G3/8) 4 .5885 - .6060 RFN-47054 $ 43.32
1/2-14 (G1/2) 4 .7355 - .7548 RFN-47056 $ 56.04

If someone can confirm that its G1/2 for Bitspower outer thread...I can take the plunge and get that tap...
But if it is wrong , then it will be an expensive mistake,.

I agree step bit is not ideal if you are going to thread the hole but they work well in acyillic to make a hole, depending on thickness of the material of course:rolleyes: and also can use it on one side then the other so that hole is not too big when using thick material.

I never had much luck using hole saws to make a hole to thread anything. I work in as a Maintenance supervisor on a drilling rig and we do a lot of construction also, Modifying equipment putting in new holes so we can run new cable, pipe or tubing to equipment some of it we thread and some is held in place with a nut. I know we have never been able to get good thread using hole saw. it might be ok if you dont want water or air tight though??

Good luck with this seanimus, if you have a caliber you can measure the fitting and find out what it is or take it to home depot or lowes or a local hardwear store and they should be able to measure it for you to tell you what it is?? This might be your best bet instead of guessing and getting it wrong??

Also BSPP will screw into a BSPT threaded hole. just have to use a gasket or o-ring to get watertight seal. a BSPT will also screw into a BSPP but again you will need gasket or o-ring. the real differance is the BSPT threads are made to seal on themself and the BSPP threads are made to hold it together but to use a o-ring or gasket to seal... hope this helps some???

at work on a drilling rig off indonesia now... so my day is just starting mad.gif
