What is the thread pitch of NU50 axle?

I know it's a 14mm size, but need to know thread pitch to buy proper die. Threads need chasing - nut won't fit back on end.

Thanks in advance,

Joe

Measure from one peak to the next in mm.

Thanks - appears to me 1mm to me, but was looking for confirmation.

Jewelers files are a lot cheaper and likely faster fix .

Plus , you get to use them on almost every other thread that you screw up . ;)

LOL! Good idea, but I already have metric tap & dies up to 12mm. Just ordered a 14x1 tap and die on ebay for $12 and change shipped. Got plenty of other stuff to do on this bike so can hold out for a week until it gets here.

Thanks,

Joe

I've used files for ever .

I have an 10 piece antique SAE Tap & Die set in it's original wooden tray . I do use it occasionally and glad I have it when needed . More for the taps than the dies .

Actually, think I'll go get a cheap set at Harbor Freight tomorrow. Good idea.

Thanks PD
