Spiral flute taps are used for threading blind holes in aluminum, brass and softer steels. The flute geometry draws the chips away from the hole where chip disposal may be an issue.
These taps are titanium coated for strength.
A tap removes material from a pre-drilled or punched hole. The result of this cutting action produces threads within the drilled hole. These threads are used in conjunction with screws or bolts to hold two pieces of material together. The cutting edges at the front of a tap remove material from the workpiece. The chips are stored in the flutes, or pushed forward in front of the tap, or are drawn up along the flutes, removing the chips and cutting fluids from the hole.
Package contains 1x high speed steel Metric Spiral Point Machine Screw Tap Drill bit.
A hex key (also, Allen key and Allen wrench) is a simple driver for screws that have heads with internal hexagonal recesses (sockets). Hex keys are formed from a single piece of hard steel hexagonal rod having blunt ends that fit snugly into similarly-shaped screw sockets.
The rods are bent to 90º, forming two arms of unequal length resembling an "L". The tool is usually held and twisted by its long arm, creating a relatively large torque at the tip of the short arm; it can also be held by its short arm to access screws in difficult-to-reach locations and to turn screws faster at the expense of torque.Our Hex keys are designated with a socket size and are manufactured with tight tolerances. We offer a variety of screws, and bolts and provide relevant hex keys for all your DIY needs.
Threading taps are a type of tool used for cutting threads (tapping) into a pre-drilled hole, to create a clean fitting for bolts and other materials to attach to steel rods and more. Threading taps work by cutting away material to produce a thread when turned. Threading taps can be used with a tap wrench or power tool and are available in various sizes to accommodate a range of applications. They are commonly used in areas such as:• Construction• DIY• Plumbing• Workshops• Renovations
