So a little update:
I forge tomorrow only the PH1 driver into the heads.......i have decided that this is big enough.....
Then i can send them to the other side of the globe togehter with the other screws......
By the way i have compared the exist screws and they have also the pitch from 1,75mm and 4mm diameter.........I correct only the lenght.....
And now i have ideas to create the switchcaps.....I inform you......I make some trys if it is possible ....

Nice work! One question - when you determined the thread pitch, did you measure only one gap or did you measure many, and take the average?
I'm pretty sure the thread pitch is 1.65mm. Here is what ten gaps measured, and 1.75mm for comparison. Caliper is properly zeroed.

Oh i have had the pictures from blue_fuz.......
And there was the value 1.73mm so i have decided to make them in pitch 1.75mm
1.65 is also possible without to know if my lathe is able to create this, could be a inch thread.
I have compared all knowned exist thread tables but have nowhere found this pitch, equal if inch or metric, the nearest is at the moment
1.75mm is only 1mm per 16,5mm difference.
But your pictures are very good to compare. I must think about it maybee i can change my changing gears.......Let me think about
And to your question: Is good to count 10 threads and measure it so like you did
And such a good caliper i got a very good TESA......
Let me see if i can do this too.....
i have calculate that when im cutting the thread with an 15g inch thread i have only a difference from only 0,75mm per 25,4mm ( 1")
this is i think the nearest value which is without problems easy to make.

That's good news! I wanted to bring this up because if the pitch isn't dead on (or very close) you risk shearing off the plastic threads inside the hole if it's already been threaded with a different pitch.
Posted 05 November 2017 - 01:02 PM
Oh I know this. That's the reason why we try to remake this like the original or as near as possible.....
Thanks for your commitment and with this info i can now make the right one's

How does Mr Trommel even make something such as a screw look so good?
I'm sure i shouldn't look at a screw and think it looks awesome, but i do.

Yes actually 1.65mm is VERY close to 0.065", which is 1.651 mm, or 15.38 threads/inch. No inch-based screw uses a fractional value for this.
But metric defines the actual thread pitch, so this screw would be M4x1.65. This makes more sense because I can buy M3.5x1.65 screws, but nothing in M4 Very odd screw.
I like that you also adjusted the thread shape to perform optimally in plastic

It exists screws for plastic in a special norm. There I have the shape from.
I have compared the exist scews with mine. The shape of the thread angles are defined.
And I have grind the lathe tool to these special angles.
my screws are better than the originals
but screws with m3 X 1,65 I have never seen and where have you see these screws? The problem with the screws is that they are not cutted they will be roll forged.
Oh m3,5 sorry but this is easy........
I can do this......
I have thread cutters here in m3,5
Stop!!!! M3,5 have definetly not this Pitch!!!
Where have you seen the screws with 1,65 Pitch??????????????
Posted 06 November 2017 - 05:24 PM
omg that is supper cool saves me from going to my parents house to look for extra screws, unless you still need them?
Posted 06 November 2017 - 09:39 PM
Where have you seen the screws with 1,65 Pitch??????????????
There's probably other companies that make these, but didn't look too hard....
Probably in Japan somewhere that I cannot search
Posted 07 November 2017 - 02:32 AM
Yeah, I think that's about as close as we're going to get
Posted 09 November 2017 - 03:23 PM
in the meantime i have try out to create a switchcap.....And let me say the following:
At this moment one of the testcaps is on the way to blue_fuz that he can tell me about the fitting and some other questions i will have........
This is only for a test, i have one made in alu....should be a little surprise to him
I know i have told that this isnt possible, but i changed my own opinion: One smart guy sayed to me: Trommelmops what you not do you cannot learn
Oh he's so right......
Im sure you see the first testcap which isnt not yet finished to 100% on a picture soon.....
Posted 16 November 2017 - 01:40 PM
Looks good and when they have a little to much pitch I can do the correct pitch now
From now on I can make them in 1.65mm pitch and can change the lathe tool a little......
Posted 16 November 2017 - 02:03 PM
They are very close thread count and pitch. Could be adjusted a little, I can get more dimensions for you. I will try tonight.
Posted 16 November 2017 - 02:31 PM
Not needed Joe I have all info's.....
More needed is the switch cap.....if it fits
Then I have the correct dimension and can make a final one
Posted 16 November 2017 - 04:28 PM
The little cap is beautiful, I will check the fitting of that as well.
Posted 19 November 2017 - 09:21 AM
OK...i need help to understand: Is the gap to tight? Which thickness has the slidermaterial?
I have made the testthing with 1.15mm gap but i think is 1.2mm?????
I need then a new measurement from you with the correct thickness......
Cool that the screws working

Trommelmops - Is it possible to recreate some more M90-screws? Mine is missing 4 of these! Hit me up (I speak german aswell)
Posted 06 February 2018 - 08:10 AM
Hey Timecop, he sent me some extras I will send to you. PM'd
Posted 09 February 2018 - 05:26 AM
if anybody need some more or different screws or something else i can made......let me know
The Mops was very busy the last time
Posted 09 February 2018 - 06:18 AM
Got me thinking about the switch caps needed for M90.
Trommelmops, maybe I/we could provide you with the actual lever/switch needed for the cap to fit?
Would that be of use to you?

Im sorry Dave, my english is worst. Have problems to understand it.......Can you explain it for a foreigner pls a little easier
