DIES

DIES

 

We mostly carry round, split dies.
The 'split die' is most commonly used and the solid die is particular to pipe threads.
Die Nuts are extremely useful on vehicle maintenance, as they can be used with wrenches or socket sets in very confined spaces.

When determining the type of die, we describe them as follows:
DIE BSC & BSF 1/4 X 26 LH 13/16OD
BSC & BSF = type of thread
1/4 = shank diameter
26 = Threads per Inch
LH = left hand. All right hand threads are not marked
13/16OD = the external diameter of the die, showing which die stock to use.
