Can anyone help I need a set of taps for a shimno BB  like the link below.

I  am making some new bushes for my frame but need a set of taps to thread the bushes for the BB to fit.

Can anyone lend or hire me a set?

Thanks

You'd be better off asking a frame builder or bike shop. BB taps are extremely expensive bits of kit.

BSA , I dunno . Is it me or does it work just fine and is  idiot proof . Bb 1234 or press fit 666  to fit a specially built frame that Will be out of production in a week and spares will be almost extinct .....what the fuck was wrong with keeping BSA . I have a sub 700 gram cervelo frame with BSA ,,,,you can get lightweight titanium shells ,if I was building a new bike that would be a must . Simple ,efficient,easy to service . These designers have all the ideas but no fucking idea . Life could be so so simple .
