    10mm is the diameter but you also need to know the thread pitch. most common is 1.5 for nuts and bolts, but for some of these applications they will use a finer thread like 1.25 and i have even seen 10x1.0

    if you are going to tap a billiard ball i would highly recommend putting a heli-coil or some other sort of steel threads. i recommend this from experience. i used a billiard ball on the suiced shifter on my last chopper project and the composite material of the billard ball doesn't hold threads that well. by adding a heli-coil you now have fixed threads glued and threaded into the billiard ball and a good metal to metal contact from the ball to the shifter.
