Universal Tap Wrench

  • Universal Tap Wrench with Sliding Crossbar
  • Accommodates Taps from #0 to 1/4" or 2 mm to 6 mm
  • Ideal for Customizing Structures Made from Our 25 mm Rails

 

This machinist-quality Hand Tap Wrench is ideally suited for everyday tapping requirements. The rugged stainless steel design provides durability and long life, and the crossbar conveniently slides to provide extra torque when required. The Hand Tap Wrench can accommodate taps as small as #0 or 2 mm and as large as 1/4" or 6 mm.

 

The XE25TG Tap Guide aligns a tap such that the resulting tapped hole is parallel to the axis of a 25 mm rail.

 

Specialty Taps - Imperial

 

  • Specialized Taps
  • Covers SM05, SM1, and Most Other Threads Used by Thorlabs

 

These specialty taps aid in the integration of our optomechanical components into your custom-built devices. Our imperial taps selection includes the majority of thread standards used by Thorlabs, including our SM05 (0.535"-40) and SM1 (1.035"-40) standards. Please see below for our metric taps.

 

Tapping Recommendations
To tap a hole, machine a pilot bore, using the table to the right to find the recommended pilot bore diameter. The bore can be made using a drill bit, an end mill, or either of these followed by a reamer. Next, secure the tap into a tap wrench, drill press, or lathe to create the threads. If resistance is felt while tapping, carefully rotate the tap backwards to remove it, as broken taps are exceptionally difficult to remove. The use of a lubricant or tapping fluid will make it easier to create the hole. For additional details on threading and taps, please consult the Machinery's Handbook, available in many machine shops and bookstores.
