    Turn a thread die holder into a tap holder

    Hi all,

    Here's a handy gadget I made up quite a while back which allows you to hold thread taps in a die holder, and use a follower for any size.



    Make them very easily, to the shank size required, for next to nothing.

    Cheers Rob

    Great idea. This would be helpful for a mini mill, where z-height is basically nil.

    Very nice - will add this to my project "to do" list and hope to get to make one after I work my way down the list. Everything just takes time.
