    Auto feed tapping stand

    The special feature of this tapping stand is that it feeds the tap automatically at the pitch of the thread being made. This therefore, avoids the need to use a taper tap and a good thread is achieved from the first turn, especially beneficial when tapping holes in thin components.

    The auto feed mechanism can also be used when tapping on the lathe.




    Also, the page on my website for this tapping stand can be found here
