I use a reamer on 5/16-18 inserts when fitting shafts for Viking cues with their slightly oversize pin.

That better be some .360"+ screw.

I don't remember the measurement right now, but I have to bore out quite a bit of material from the regular brass inserts before I ream. I think Viking wants $12 for the inserts, that's not gonna happen...

After looking at some of the sharing, I went ahead to try boring and modifying the 5/16-14 brass insert. I was a little skeptical if the tool bits will be able to do the job. But I approached it slowly and thin passes.

Well, thank you guys for the sharing. Managed to modify the brass insert to fit the United pins now. Can continue with some of the jobs!

What size you bore it to?

Just did one for a Viking quick release. o.d. on the barrel was .260. o.d. on the threaded part was .310. I used a G drill and a .308x18 tap. Very good fit. Next time I might try a 6.6mm drill bit.

Just run a 17/64 drill in and then just run a 5/16-18 GH-3 tap in to clean it out.


Easy.....
This is to fit a Viking.

Hello Michael,

Based on the measurements on my calipers, the ID was bored to .27" and the pilot was turned down to .483". I am not sure if these are the ideal measurements to work to, what I did was to measure the minor diameter of the United Pin and the ID of the groove on the joint collar and worked to the stated measurements on the brass insert. So far it fits alright! =)

Hi JS
If it doesn't have a sloppy wiggle when you screw it together, then you did well. If it's sloppy then I would try a 6.6mm, G or lastly 17/64 in that order. Better fit is a better product. For Mezz, I still do the F drill but I'm fortunate to have multiple taps for the 5/16x14.

Michael,

Thank you for the valuable piece of advice. I will take note for the future. Tested the fitting earlier, it was good! All thanks to the sharing and support here. =)

If that is the case, the 5/16-14 insert can be reamed and chased again with a tap and should work.


Keepin' the rubber side down...
