Hand Taps

Hand Taps are used to create a thread in a pre-drilled hole so that a fastener with the same size/ type of thread can be screwed into it to secure a component/ part. They should be used with a suitable lubricant for better quality threads and to prolong the life of the tap.

3rd/  Bottoming Taps

A bottoming, or, 'plug', tap has no tapered, front edge. Instead it's tip is ground to a cutting edge meaning that it can create a thread to the bottom of a blind hole.

Metric Threads

Metric Coarse threads are in Millimetre (mm/ 1000ths of a metre) units and were developed to simplify the imperial systems. Europe moved to this system but the Americans choose Imperial as their default. A coarse thread has less helical coils per mm and a metric fine threads has more. A Coarse thread (most common/ standard thread) is used for heavier loads and fine is used for lighter loads prone to vibrations.
