Features and Benefits • Precision HSS tap for machine tapping • Can be used for hand tapping without need of a lead tap. • Designed with a straight flute supplemented by an angular cutting point leaves the flutes clear of swarf for free coolant flow. • Blue steam tempered finish reduces friction and produces a fine finish thread Application Tap sets are ideal for cutting thread (tapping) into materials, to create a clean fitting for bolts and other materials whereas drill sets are perfect for DIY projects that require a hole to be driven into a surface or material.

It is recommended that lubrication is regularly applied to the tap when in use, to allow for friction-free threading with precision. This will ensure that a clean thread is achieved with minimal damage. What are the advantages of High-Speed Steel?
