Dies and Dienuts
Drill Service stocks a wide range of Dies and Dienuts in High Speed Steel.
A Die cuts an external thread on cylindrical material for example a bolt – the process is called threading. A Die can be used to clean up a thread – called chasing. Dies can come as solid or split. Drill Service stocks split dies as standard. Split Dies as more accurate as they can be adjusted to suit your tolerance.
Our Dies are for general purpose use on most common materials. The chamfer is ground, with lapped threads. Left Hand Taps are available.
A Dienut or rethreading die are dies made for cleaning up damaged threads. Die nuts are solid hexagonal shape so they can be turned by a wrench. This process is often called chasing. Die nuts cannot be used to cut new threads.
Die Stocks are available too with Heavy Duty Steel Bodies. Also available Die Adaptors.
