  • Thread chaser (revist previous post)
  • Been meaning to post this since the last thread chaser post. A mechanic friend of mine showed me how to make a thread chaser.

    This is a 3/4" grade 8 bolt. I needed a thread chaser for the top spring on a 501 Ford mower to clean the threads. Didn't want to buy a thread chaser for one time use and they didn't have one I could borrow.

    He used a Die Grinder with a cut-off wheel to cut the 4 notches.

  • That looks like a great idea. Very similar to the smaller ones I have been using.

  • I used that one successfully and tried one other that I didn't have a tap or thread chaser to fit. Worked great for me.

    Grade 8 bolts aren't cheap, but better than big thread chasers.
