  2. selftapping screws?

    not 100 persent what to do think the 6mm will possibly be a little much for selftappers or maybe not? I do have a tap and die set but its draper and has only one tap per size so i think its for re cutting the worse senario is a snapped tap right at the bottom said bottom think i might buy a set from julynians link still theres no room for swingin so will have to be in the cordless thanks guys..........and bones also many more questions like gas pipe how is this normally done is it ok to cut holes on the gas locker some sort of protective gromit through the hull with copper pipe into the galley into hob and cooker using the least amount of fittings,with a gas tap on the pointy end so i can isolate so i dont blow up (i do have some gas and plumbing experience)are solderd fitings more risky due to vibration? thanks

    look on ebay they did have a mesh insert like for a sink but simply will not allow a hose down the tanks hole,you could silicone it in to reduce the chance of stuff falling in the tank
