    I’m with Kevin….saw those on my wire strippers but never knew you could do that with them…thought it was just for identifying a thread! Always learn something here!!! Thanks for the cool video.
    One other thing…what type of lube were you using? brand? I’ve got some work to do with tapping some metal but can only find a liquid lube here.

    thanks again!

      Hi On a previous video he used Accu- Lube Push-Up Stick-Lube

      I was able to stop video and copy down the name. I then clicked on some link ( do not know which one) and it took me to a sight that sells them.

    I’ve used those crimp tools for 30 years and never noticed the screw cutter. Brilliant!

    Excellent, thank you. I see that I need to upgrade my basic tap and dye set. Whenever I cut a bolt to length using a hacksaw, I usually thread a nut all the way home on the bolt, then just back it off after cutting to remove the burr.
