Hi friends, I make design of new part for hot pressing from SMC prepreg. And I need to add two usual fittings with external thread 1" and 1/2" as elements of the part. But my moldmaker says that it is impossible to make threads from SMC well as it's impossible to cut threads on ready parts! I absolutely do not want to use special small metal inserts for bolts and use flanges but not standard inch fittings! Could you please recommend how to make thread from SMC composite?
Hope for your kind help!
