    Tapping Stand

    I just finished my Tapping Stand
    Its built from the plans in Harold Halls book " MODEL ENGINEERS WORKSHOP PROJECTS "
    book 39 in the workshop practice series
    Its a nicely thought out design but then thats true of all of Harolds designs

    What is clever with this design is each tap has a corresponding feed screw mechanism
    which automatically feeds the tap downwards at the corect speed to match the pitch
    of the thread

    I am pleased how it came out
