Spiral Pointed Taps, Tap America
Spiral-Pointed taps, or Machine Taps, were originated to solve the problem of tap breakage in through hole tapping. The Machine Tap shoots chips ahead of the cutting action, thus reducing loading and clogging in the flutes. They are recommended for use in through or blind holes which allow for chip accumulation in the bottom of the hole. Ideal for threading a wide variety of ductile materials, copper and copper alloys, brass and non-metallics.
