Hi Dan and welcome to the forum!

The DW625 is a European design, so the threads are all metric. Sorry I can't help with the size. If nobody else answers I'll put a caliper on one of mine tomorrow and post the results (I think it's something like M18 x 1 from memory but I don't have a machine sitting here to check). The price of those dies over here is about what a new armature and shaft would cost

Regards

Phil

Now that's what I mean when I say that I learn something new every time I log onto the forum, I've never seen a set of thread restoring tools like that Bob.

HI Harry

I'm a old gear head ,have many of my old tools in the shop they do come in handy, at one time it was Snap-On tools for me not routers.

But I did dump all the small eng.tools and the big hvy.equipment tools (Cat.D9 stuff ) 4" sockets etc. on eBay about a year or two ago or so I'm getting better about being a hoarder of things but now the routers are/have taking the place for tools for me LOL

Thanks for the reply. I took it to a machine shop here and they were able to file the thread and I just put it back together and it works fine. It turned on a little hard but no cross theading and I set it up with my above table bit extension so it will not have to come apart for a long time. So I am good to go. Thanks again for your reply.

Harry, I use my mine all the time; it's a great set. Some of the metric and US stuff is close in size and rather than squinting under a light I just test with the set.

Hey, BJ..

Now that Dan has his solution, I'd like to hijack the thread slightly to ask you the difference between the thread restoring tool and a tap&die set. I see snapon says not to use it for cutting new threads; does it lack the taper in the cutters or ??

How are they better for rethreading than a die set?

Any day I learn something new is a good day!

Jim

HI Jim

Well it's just for chasing the threads more or less ,a tap and die set will cut new threads but most of them need a handle for the job to hold the cutting tools with.and the part needs to come off at some point with most of them, the set above all you need is socket or wrench ,same with the files...you could call it a repair kit.

Almost all tap and die sets will have a taper built in to the cutters so the can start small and take off more with each turn of the tool..but I'm sure you know that

I also have a full set of hex head bolts that can do the same job as the taps, it's the type that looks a diamond on the end of the bolts that will cut it's own thread in a drilled out hole, from 3/16 to 1 1/4" a real life saver and real cheap to buy also..you can also make your own dies by using a hard nut (grade 8 or 9 )and with a hack saw put in slots in the threads of the nut.. works just the same.

I am sure BJ will agree that a surprising number of jobs are made easier with the rethreading set. A good example of a common use is when you take apart something that has rust on the threads. A dab of WD-40, run the restoring tap or nut and the threads are clean as a whistle and go together like silk. This does not replace a tap set but is an excellent compliment to one. Another useful item is a set of tap sockets; they are sized to fit both standard and metric taps and really speed the process. I use mine with a 1/4" air ratchet and a generous application of Tap Magic brand cutting oil.
