Steel Soldiers now has a few new forums, read more about it at: New Munitions Forums!
just my as a machiist..... general rule of you run the tap in 3/4" of flute lenth or all but 7 threads.... its useually works out pretty good. unless you have to check it with a gauge but im not gonna go into thatDrill hole to proper size, run pipe tap down to proper depth, install pyro.
Most pyro sensors are 1/8-27 NPT. Tap drill size is .332", or letter "Q" bit.
Depth of thread: Official technique to get proper depth is to run the tap in 12 turns. I just go by eye though, and tap until the threads are cut enough to have a full, clean thread, then adjust for the job. For something like a pyro, you may not always have room to go full depth, so you can adjust as needed.
Lol I guess I'm bypassing haha.... I understand the benefits.... Just didn't know if I wanted to mess with it.
