>>first, I may have hit the wrong key jut prior to this and to my horror sent a blank reply with the whole dang CR digest in it. If I find I did so, I will die of embarassment. I am sorry, really sorry if I did, but I won't know since I am digest-getter..<<<
Anyway...discussing the Paramount with Ital threading
I have tapped out numerous BB shells to Italian when the need arose. Never a big deal, and by using the old spindle, and new (Italian threaded) cups, saved the day for the customer. It used to be that one could get cups oversized by .5 mm in diameter from Vicenza, but that went away a long time ago. I dimly recall retapping a chrome Paramount. Could it be? naw... what are the odds?
