Brevet Crown+Tube Question

Post by atkin68 »

Looking for a source for this style of crown + tube which does not require tapping the case for threads. I'm too intimidated by that process to attempt it at this point, but I do want a screw down crown that looks like this one from Athaya, or similar:

Have looked on helenarou, wenping, raffles, NW.

Thanks,
Dave

I have only seen them threaded, but please do share if you find a source.

Tapping the case was surprisingly easy. I think I spent the most time on research, trying to find the correct tap size and drill bit size.
