    This is interesting because of the way the tap is moved from the oil in the can to the work piece...yet it’s held and driven by a substantial spindle.

    I'd recognize that tapping machine any time! That's ABOM79's new power tap machine; go big or go home...
    (The BOOTH MACHINE SHOP t-shirt is your second clue)

    Oh, of course, I fall pretty far behind on Abom videos. I think I remember seeing info about this tapper - Iíll have to go watch now.

    That is just dead sexy. I can feel my testosterone count going up just watching it and knowing how incredibly awesome it is.

    I think Abom probably feels the same way. Check out his facial expressions at 9:24, 10:58, and 15:59!
