Where to get a tap and die set

I found out the tap size for XE feedneck.
It's 7/8th-32 UN-2B
Where would one get a tap set for that's size?

Wouldn't a tap set probably have that size included?

If not, I think this is what you need: 7/8" - 32 HSS Right Hand Thread Tap 7/8 - 32 TPI - Amazon.com

Hmm, that tap seems super short.

No normal tap and die set would have that size. at least nothing that you would find at the local hardware store.

A starter, standard and bottoming set of that size is probably what he means.

I dont see any sets on amazon. harbour freight will probably have them.

You probably wont have a snowballs chance in hell of starting a plug tap by hand.

I also sorted through my papers and found my Tap Drill Size chart. Looks like the drill needed is listed as "Specialized".

Time to grab the machinists' handbook and do a little math.

Would this work?

Special Size, HSS Hand Tap, 7/8" Size, 32 Threads per Inch, PLUG: Amazon.com: Home Improvement

Or this:

Are you purchasing a tap to do your own feednecks? If so, a single starting tap might not provide you with enough threads without the nose of the tap farking up the bore area. You may also have to purchase a bottom tap to get the very last threads cut without damage to the ret of the gun.

I guess your not a card carrying gorilla then.. lol. I got called that when our tapping head broke at work and I ran a a 3/8-16 tap by hand through stainless steel .5 inch thick 16 times and didn't complain.

You would need a taper to start but a big tap isn't killer to run by hand just material dependent.

Well, I figure since it just aluminum, it wouldn't be THAT hard.

That may be the feedneck threading, but the feed port in the body may not be the correct size to just go at it with a tap, it probably needs to be opened up a bit and doing that with a drill is likely to tear into the area where the o-ring behind the breech sits.

I'll go get some measurements in a bit.
