Funny you should bring that up. I just bought a thread chaser (not a die) 5/8 x18 for wheel to dish bolts on a 9N that I am working on.
I looked at McMaster Carr and the first one I found was about $19. Further search on their website and I found one for $2.08 plus shipping.
A friend who buys from them often for his foundry ordered 2, 1 for him and 1 for me. He would buy his if I paid the shipping for both. OK, still saving money.
Now the fun. Weeks ago, he bought a banding machine, banding and tools from me for $200. I wanted cash so he gave me rolled quarters. BIG LAUGH at McD coffee. My turn. For what I owed him I paid him $8 in quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies in a zip lock bag, at McD. Real big laugh when I shook the bag before giving it to him.
Also I know that he has not counted it because I put an extra penny in the bag, 6 total. He he.
