I use stainless cap bolts to secure power tools like my mitre saw, scroll saw and grinder to the bench and sometimes find that the bolts have a few mm of unthreaded shank projecting below the worktop which means I have to use several washers to fit the nut tightly. I have a cheap set of taps and dies which perform reasonably on mild steel, aluminium and brass but will not cut a thread on stainless. Any recommendations on makes or grades of dies which will do the job would be greatly appreciated.
