    Ways to repair damaged thread on RDA?

    Just hoping I can get advice from some of the handy types on here.

    I damaged the thread on the 510 connecter on an RDA this arvo when modding it to bottom fed. Do I need to buy a " Tap and Dye: set? Is there any other recommended fix? I can still thread it on with a bit of a struggle but feels like it will hurt the thread in the mods connecter. Should I perhaps sand or grind off the bit of thread that is damaged or will this likely make it worse?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    If it's the first bit of the thread that has folded over or become ruff u can file it a little bit if it's further down a die would be your best option.

    Thanks for that. I have seen dye in kits with different sizes, which size do I need need to make sure is in there? It is just a bit at the start of the thread btw, so I may try filing it.

    It won't be in most kits I had to get my tap from over seas no Ausy normal stores carried them and it was cheaper.
    I'm not at home to check at the moment but might need someone else to confirm the right thread for you. Just don't buy a kit until you know my money is on it will not have the right one.

    I bought a dye from eBay, you need M7x0.5

    Having said that, you may get away with "chasing" the thread with a triangle needle file?

    They are easy to pick up, cheap, and you may get away with it?

    if you want cheap and nasty, get a 510 adapter like this one
    Eleaf iStick 510-eGo Adapter
    they sell ones like it on FT aswell

    Since the metal is soft, you can form it or glue the RDA to the adapter.
    Worst comes to worst your out a couple of bucks

    This would be the best to try first, just slow and steady, always works for me.

    An alternative would be to try one of these?? Larger surface area to fix RDA to?
