    Hah I did the same thing. I brought it to the bike shop the other day though and it turns out that although I didn't destroy the threads, they are damaged. It has been causing that crank to coming loose.

      I did this to remove the crank to get to the cap with a few 5ps but they bend real bad

          It can be done. I used a Singapore 5c coin (16mm diameter). It does indeed ruin the coin. Better to use an ISIS crank puller.

                    I feel stupid I just replied to an old thread I had already replied to, I guess that teaches me to read the whole thread and not just the first page.

                      Yes. It sounds funny. But this is a good thread to revive.

                      Goodluck Joeseph. I was there when you were asking Phil.

                        Guys Here Is The Solution.

                        ok, so I went to this web page.

                        they claim to have a 12mmX1mm tap! they just emailed me back.

                        if you wanna talk to them just email or call them.

                        I dont know their reputation, but they emailed me back within an hour which I think is a good sign of reputable business.

                        here is their web page.

                        www.e-taps.com

                        The tap is about 20$ american for shipping and everything. I think they are located in the united states.
                        This is a good deal.
                        for a new hub and a wheel build would cost about 90$ about.

                          This is what happens the time I do not double check the procedure, just in case. As some have said here, don't overthink, just keep it simple.

                          I ended up damaging up the threads removing the isis cranks on my KH 20. Hope I can get this fixed otherwise I need a new hub etc. Don't want to tap this myself and cross thread it or make it worse. Would rather an experienced hand do this.

                          Notice that a few other folks "keeping it simple" made the same mistake...

                            So you used the square taper side of the crank puller and it damaged the threads in the hub (not the crank threads)? If I'm following correctly, I wouldn't be too worried about re-tapping it yourself. Usually with cutting fluid and a good tap, you won't be able to cross-thread it too easily. You should be able to find an M12 tap and handle for a lot cheaper than a new hub.

                              Thats's correct, I damaged the hub, not the cranks. Now I realize there is a different end that needed to be swapped.

                              Shouldn't have done it tired at the end of a long day...

                                A regular tapered tap should have enough chamfer on it that it will help line it up with the hole and clear out the first few threads (probably the only threads that got damaged.) If you have a pick or pokey tool (dart maybe) you might be able to chase the threads out with that.
                                It's a lot easier on aluminum than a hardened chromoly hub spindle, but might still be worth a try...
