deerless that was my main concern when first started thinking about doing this... i matched the tap up which was a 5/8X18TPI and only used it to straighten the first few threads did not chase all the way through. it seemed to work fine sighted it in after work yesterday with no issues... but the first few shots i was definitely nervous! your point was very valid. i have been a mechanic my whole life and had the tap at the house but went and got a new one just to be sure i was taking no chances.
