    Look for them at a fastener supply. NAPA may have one, also.

    Try McMaster-Carr. You can find them online and order straight from them.

    if it is a real rock rod then call the manufacturuer.
    on another thread(here or on the other board) Scott was saying he has some hand usable taps that he throws out as they are not usable in his machines.

    If you just need to clean up the threads you could use your old TRE's to do it...cut a few slots down the sides with a cutoff wheel and grind the tip just a bit so it starts easy. Won't cut new threads but might work to clean them up and could save you alot of $$$

    There is some good price info here:
