This is a non-standard size so you aren't likely to find it locally.

MSC has them (www.mscdirect.com)

The good one...

Part Number: 65060543
Description: OSG/Sossner 9/16x24 Extra Fine Tap
Price: $23.22

The chinese one...

Part Number: 04845236
Description: Import 9/16x24 Extra Fine Tap
Price: $10.47

I've replied with two part numbers, if you have more than a few holes or if they are in steel I would go with the OSG/Sossner one.

I chased down some 9/16-24 taps a while ago for forum members,... both right and left hand thread. If you live near a population center of any size, a local industrial supply house can get them for you. Industrial supply warehouses are the people who catre to machine shops, factories, and such. 9/16-24 RH taps are reasonably common and will sell for about $13 or so,.. the LH taps are more rare,.. I found them locally at a company named:

Neill Lavielle Supply
1051 Whipple Court
Lexington, KY 40511

Phone: 859-255-9608

The salesman to speak to there is named George Wilson. He's a very helpful fellow. The price that he quoted me for 9/16-24 LH taps was around $28 each if purchased individually. If I recall correctly, that price drops to around $21 each if purchased in a lot of 12.

I just got the cheaper one listed above from MSC. I have a Entreprise type III that I could not get ANY gas tube nut to thread all the way in. If you only need it a few times, the cheap one works well.

Derby: The part numbers above are for plug style. MSC does have bottoming and taper styles as well IIRC.
