Thread size on Pocket Rocket jet? on 11/25/2009 15:35:11 MST Print View

Hi
I'm planning to make a remote canister stove using some bits from a Pocket Rocket and I don't recognise what size the thread on the jet is. Does anyone know?
Thanks

From memory (because I haven't checked it recently), it is the 'standard' jet thread of M4.5 x 0.5.

The hole itself should (most likely) be between 0.25 mm and 0.3 mm diameter.

Thanks Roger, that's a great help

Mark, will post back later. The plan is to make something like Darens PR/Brunton hybrid, as described in this thread (hope the link worked)

Hi Stuart

The thread is a sort of standard for many stoves, but getting the taps and dies is hard. However, www.e-taps.com can supply them at a good price and the firm is very reliable. Say Hi to Kris there for me.
