Tap 12-32 UNEF for Feedthrough Capacitors


Recently I bought a batch of 3,3nF/200V feedthrough capacitors from Baco Army shop, but despite the description stating M5 thread this wasn't true. Instead it appeared to be 12-32 UNEF thread, so I ordered a special Tap for this thread from a Chinese store on Ebay.

Recently I bought a batch of 3,3nF/200V feedthrough capacitors from Baco Army shop.
In the description on their webshop is stated that the thread is M5. But unfortunately, upon receiving the order, it appeared that the thread on these capacitors isn't M5 at all.
After carefully measuring the thread and looking it up in tables, the outcome was that it's actually 12-32 UNEF thread.
I've searched on Ebay and found a China merchant who's selling TAPS for this 12-32 thread and I ordered some taps on september 2nd 2012. They finally arrived on september 29th.
