Default m12x1.25 die?

Anyone know where I can get one from? I have looked at all hardware stores near here and no luck. I don't wanna have to buy a huge set just to get one die.
this is for my kartboy shifter. I goofed up the threads putting it in.

I know craftsman sells them. That's were I bought mine. I didn't have any metric taps or dies until I started working on the WRX. Now, I can't live without them.

My semi-local NAPA store (which happens to be the best auto parts store I have ever been in) carries individual dies and taps.

metric fine taps and dies can be a pain to locate - M12x1.5 and M12x1.75 are readily available, M12x1.25 is not... Mcmaster carries one ($47 though)

looks like Ace hardware has the hex type for $6 - the Mcmaster one I mentioned is an adjustable round die (adjustable ones tend to be more expensive, but are better for thread repair - the hex ones are nice because you can use a regular wrench with them, though) MSC has one for $10 (hex type)

do you know which vendor doityourself.com sent you to?
