What size plugs are you needing?  These are #8-40. I have made #6-56 plugs but man are they small.  Most people use 1/4-32

For the future project...the 8-40's.....right now...I'm looking to make some #1/4-32s or 10-32's for the Wallaby......
But You don't need to do that bud...I can do it.
I'll probably use the Rimfires....
