How good are those ratchet type tap holders, a fitter at work as one and it is magic for chasing threads.
I'm not sure, but don't ask Brodie.

Way to many build and half done projects to list here.

I love them!!!   

I would prefer to use the drill for this.  But Im afraid of getting it cross threaded in the aluminum.

So it gets a hand job.   ;)

Says the guy who makes sure even the o-rings are correct.

Keep up the good work. Maybe look at shaving the head some and getting the squish band set. Little bit more compression for your rat rod engine.

For what its worth, I do know how to clean stuff.

After finishing all the threads and more cleaning...
