I have an M10x1.5 tap right here...
Thanks for the help (I'll try not to be such a moron)
Alright just to close this... it is M10 x 1.5
My excuse is that I wasn't feeling confident that I could eyeball the difference between 1.5 and 1.25 thread pitches
My bolts all go in nice and smoothly now
now I just need to slather them with anti-seize so it doesn't happen again
