All you need is a single 12mm x 1.5 pitch die. You can get a die handle to make things easier, but you can run the die just as well with a simple Crescent wrench. All you need is the die ($7-8), some cutting fluid (about $3 a bottle), and a hacksaw to cut the shifter to length once you're done.Originally posted by lyrictenor1@Oct 31 2005, 08:16 PM
BTW, what do I need to buy for a tap and die thingy? I don't really plan on using it again, so I'm looking to buy the minimum... I don't anything about tap and dies, so any help would be appreciated. I ask b/c I'm browsing online and I see a plethora of choices...
Yup you read (or didn't read) right....Originally posted by FiremanNick@Nov 1 2005, 11:36 PM
COOL! After reading this post today at work, I went to the hardware store, bought a 12 x 1.5 die, went home, threaded the shifter, and chopped 1.5" off.
