you can buy "vented" (pre drilled) set screws at: McMaster-Carr, which is what inspired the mod.

Bumping this up, since so many old 007s being released back into the wild, might come in handy.

That's a 007 Challenger. They were a direct-feed kit for the Nelspot, plastic body with a brass lined bore. Bacci has a bunch.

Every time I try to do this I get the tap crooked and snap it off. Anyone have suggestions? I've ruined 3 piercers so far.

With out knowing how your trying to do it. My thoughts are, your pilot hole is too small, not enough lubrication, or not using a bottoming tap. Or a combination of them

It's been a few months since I last tried it but I was using the drill # specified on the tap. The tap was a cheap set from amazon, had both bottoming and the other kind. The first try I just grabed the bottoming tap and broke it a few threads in. Next try I used the normal tap first, hoping it would be easier to get it started strait, it got a few more threads before it broke, both times I tried my hardest but it was crooked when it snapped. I need some kind of jig or something to keep the tap strait I think. Not sure what other people are doing. I'm holding the piercer in a vice with some aluminum soft jaws. probably not optimal but I don't have machine tools.
