    Did a search but only came up with Double Tap's. Anyone know the tap size (thread pitch) for the X Metal ear stem screw? Also the drill size and a source to buy one? Thanks. Working on a project.

    Here's a good chart I use when looking up what drill bit size I need. Show's 2-56 needs a #50 drill bit. Both bit and tap can be found on amazon for pretty reasonable prices. Or if you happen to have a snap on truck or matco truck in your area they would be able to help you out as well.
