    I will reserve this post for relevant discussion additions.

    Please know that I have availability to some advanced tools. Most of this requirement can be brought down to simpler methods.
    I encourage people to help others achieve such feats by helping to develop simpler methods of achieving the same thing.
    We own the tools to do this. Printed solutions helps a lot!

    This is an angle plate I used on my watchmaker's lathe/mill to get a 15 degree angle. M6 threads were to mount the vise were printed in the model!
    This allows for very simple thread chaser, rather than a full blown tap. Thread chasers can be made with a simple screw and a Dremel cut-off wheel.

    All mine come from eBay. Bowden tubing 4mm PD 2mm ID PTFE [Teflon]; PC4M5 is the fitting code you want.

    Also find me on Thingiverse as 'Qube3Bot' - printable solutions A-Z.

    Thanks for reaching out. Come join the Print3Dforum.com and find treasures for your Cube 3 printer.

    I chose M5 for the tighter thread pitch. M6 will work fine.
