“TedV”M5 is available in both coarse, .8mm and fine .5mm thread pitch. You might want to verify what you have and need. The old measure twice, cut once kind of thing. M5x.8 is more common but I’ve been screwed by hard to find fine pitch many times. (Pun intended)


how come the charts only show the M5 with a .8mm pitch NOT a .5mm pitch ? 
does that mean they don’t make the fine pitch for purchase ?
