Re: Tumbler threads

I worked with it a bit and got the screw fully seated. It was tight in the threads, but I oiled the screw well, and using a good Brownells hollow ground bit slowly worked the screw in, going back and forth. I pulled the screw out 3 times to wipe off the threads, re-oil and continue. I finally got the screw seated and all is well. I suppose maybe the tap they used to thread the tumbler was getting a bit worn by the time they got around to this one.
