Irwin Cut Thread Taper Pipe Tap

To make a good pipe thread you need a pipe tap reamer to go with the pipe tap and a good threading oil.

Irwin cut thread pipe tap
May 27, 2011
from Molalla, Oregon
Cut thread pipe taps and any cut thread taps are only good for cleaning up damaged existing threads. Cut thread taps tend to bind and give a poor finish with the need for extra pressur to turn them, sometimes resulting in a broken tap or stripped threads. With taps of any type you are ahead if you stick to HSS ground thread taps and use a good grade of cutting oil.
