I'm die-ing to know the answer.
Yes, thinking about the 2B and going way off piste, we're probably headed towards Winnie-the-Pooh ;);)

I can't work out if this thread is merely drifting, or drunk.

Well, I suppose it's a question of what you're brought up on - in my case, after tea, my mother would read to my brother and I; a variety of books, from Winnie-the-Pooh (and my eldest son later received a copy of that in Latin as a school prize) to Arthur Ransome, and various others that I don't remember :oops:

Back to Pooh, it was the pencils, which he decided stood for 'Brave Bear' and 'Helping Bear' :nerd::nerd::nerd:

Surely if we are talking threads its not thread drift, unless you use a hammer and punch to remove it.

Well the job is done.
I can confirm that an external M2 thread can be cut effectively onto 2 mm brass rod.
Consider the shrew screw well and truly tamed.
Now to work out how to obtain a nice tight 90 degree angle.
Hey ho...
Once more unto the breach...
Regards,
