Nice job! That looks great!

Check this page for the tap for the rear dropout adjusters:
Framebuilding.com
About half way down is the tap. It looks xtra long so, not sure if you could find one locally;
Art.33. M3 Tap for Rear Dropout Adjuster Holes 14.29 (11.91 outside EU*)

A warning, M3 taps are VERY easy to break in the drop out. Heightened care and lots of lube are the norm. Andy

Thank you sir, I will keep it in mind when I clean out the Threads.

Maybe i should have asked for a List of Thread sizes for all the threads on the bike.

I assume you are jesting. This isn't the modern auto business where every part is documented. But this frame likely only uses 5, or so, thread dimensions.

The 3mmx.5mm for the drop out axle positioning screws
10mmx26tpi for the der mount (yes a mix of metric and SAE, this is a bike after all)
36mmx24tpi likely for the BB shell (both RH as it's likely Itl)
25.4mmx24tpi for the headset (or English 1"x24tpi, they are class B+ interchanges)
M5 bottle bosses and drop out eyes

But as they say, measure twice assume no times. Andy

the 5mm threads have .8mm pitch, which is the standard coarse metric thread. If it had a 6mm thread anywhere,, they would be 6x1
