EXPERT – Hand taps
Hand taps are multi-part sets designed for hand use. In combination with a suitable adjustable tap, they allow you to machine threads that are not accessible by machine. This is particularly recommended if you want to machine materials that are difficult to cut.
Finish taps, from the multi-part sets, are particularly suitable for re-tapping existing threads. These have a short lead (form C with 2-3 threads) and are cheaper than comparable machine taps.
Our taper taps for movement threads (trapezoidal, Acme, etc.) or for materials that are difficult to machine are equipped with a guide pin. This helps with insertion into the core hole and ensures the correct position of the tap.
