Same thread (13/16 x 20) as a common automotive/light trailer spindle nut (such as a Dorman 615-074). The spindle nuts ARE thicker than the Dillon nuts - but this allows you to drill & tap it for a setscrew that allows you to lock the nut in place on the trimmer die, which lets you move the trimmer motor from one toolhead to another without losing the adjustment.

RE: Dillon trim dies

Where can I get someone to drill and tap a set screw for one?

RE: Dillon trim dies

randymaudlin - it's a pretty simple operation, can easily be done with a drill press and a hand tap. If this forum had a PM system - I'd ask for your address and just send you one :)
