Basic Effective (Pitch) Diameter = 9.1mm.PRESTO ® Basic Sizes and Tolerances for Taps If taps were manufactured to basic sizes they would have a very short life. The screw thread has a plus tolerance and the standard allows the taps to be made within this tolerance. The tolerances of the major and the minor diameters are not given in the tap standards. Example for an M10 tap applying Class 2 thread tolerance. but the effective diameter is regarded as the most important element and thus the tolerance is rigidly specified. The size of the tap cannot be judged by measuring the major diameter. On tough materials like stainless steel we recommend you take advantage of the extra allowance.042 Minimum Effective Diameter = 9. It can be misleading to measure the outside diameter of the bolt as it will be 2% smaller.e. We also give the alternative maximum size.026 Minimum Oversize = 0.06 Tap Tolerance = 0.056 Minimum Major Diameter = 10. Tapping Practice Tap Drill Size In the thread charts that follow the correct tapping size is given in the information. Limits of Tolerance Tolerance is the amount of variation permitted in the manufacture of the tap and takes the form of a further addition to the minimum diameters. It is especially important in deep holes of 2 times diameter and greater (drill sizes from BS1157 appendix "A"). The two cannot be compared.000 Minimum Oversize = 0. common practice is to leave a small flat crest and not out to a sharp point. as with good modern drills the drilled hole can be small. If you measure the outside diameter of a tap it will be approximately 1% larger than the nominal size i.028 Maximum Effective Diameter = 9.056 Maximum Major is not specified. a 10mm tap will measure 10.096 Basic Major Diameter = 10. 25 .

SERIAL FORM HAND TAPS These are also hand taps. Only the plain shanked Finish tap cuts SIZE. The roughing tap is takes out half the thread area it is marked with a ring on the shank for identification. or a bell mouthed hole will be produced with thin threads. holding fixture or tapping attachment. The Mid-Rougher will take out to 75% of the area of the thread. When taps are used in a machine it is usual to use only the second lead. consider a fluteless tap for very deep holes. This form of hand tap is recommended for materials like stainless steel and large taps over 25mm in diameter make it possible to hand tap right up to 52mm Only two taps are supplied for fine pitch threads. During tapping of a deep hole. pitch and length of the thread. Use of the correct lubricants is as important as the decision to use it. Exact figures cannot be given because of the variables such as machinability of the material being tapped. condition of the machine.breakage is inevitable in these circumstances. avoid the flutes becoming clogged with chips . an ample supply is needed on the cutting edges. it is marked with two rings on the shank. When starting a tap do not force or retard the tap. Chip disposal is a large problem on taps of 12mm and smaller where flute space is restricted see description on spiral point and spiral flute taps below. see page 29 for an initial recommendation and guide. but to aid in the formation and removal of chips. Allow the tap to establish its own pitch. it must be kept clean and carefully directed into the hole being tapped. HAND TAPS For hand tapping. It is essential that the tap is presented squarely to the work and that the taps are correctly aligned. Using the bottom tap only. not only to disperse heat.PRESTO ® TAPPING PRACTICE LUBRICANTS First class tapping can only be done with a copious supply of proper lubricant. depth. SPEEDS Efficient tapping has its optimum speed. the conventional set of 3 taps with straight flutes is recommended. can cause problems and will significantly reduce the life of the tool. From practical application adjust our recommendations up or down until optimum results are obtained. 26 .

We only supply these to order. Interrupted thread taps are also available for stainless and other work hardening materials. The result is therefore stronger taps which are suitable for through hole tapping in most materials. SPIRAL FLUTE TAPS These taps have a continuous spiral flute the same hand as the thread. NPSF are parallel undersize threads with truncated crests for dryseal use with tapered fitting. The most suitable applications are on blind holes in ductile materials with long continuous chips. We recommend the use of the tapered reamer when tapping this thread. G series threads (BSPF) this is a parallel fastening thread for BS2779 where pressure tight joints are not required. are made with a special leading flute ground at an angle to the tap axis. 2. Rc series (BSPT) threads where pressure tight joints are required. 3. Taper reamers are an advantage on tapping these threads and we stock 1:16 taper reamers for this application. NPT are standard taper taps and can be assembled with jointing for low pressure work. We can supply tapered pipe reamers to aid tapping. Blind hole tapping should only be attempted where there is sufficient room at the bottom of the hole to accommodate the swarf. These taps are made to BS949 with ISO shanks and squares. NPTF similar to above but with truncated crests to effect a dryseal. 27 . This left hand flute at the lead pushes the swarf ahead of the tap threads thus allowing the use of smaller flutes since chip clearance is not required.PRESTO ® SPIRAL POINT TAPS These taps are sometimes called GUN-Nosed. thus forcing the swarf up the hole. Slower 15° spiral may be used on tougher materials. and interrupted thread taps for stainless and other work hardening materials. Details are given on page 37. PIPE TAPS There are three types of ISO component Pipe Taps Threads: 1. AMERICAN PIPE TAPS NPS taps can be used for NPSC & NPSM parallel threads. NPSM is used as a mechanical fastening thread. Rp or BSPPL are undersize Parallel taps for use on BS21 gas tight application they have tapered plugs assembled into the parallel hole and are destructively dry sealing. NPSC threads are internal couplings and may be used with sealant for low pressure pipe work.

is it the correct type of tap. 4c.: (a) Cutting rake too great. Tap out of alignment with the hole or tap not running true. As these materials may tear rather than cut cleanly. 4. 4. Material too hard. It should be noted that the biggest change is the requirement of a larger tapping drill. Incorrect tap for the material e. 7. or abrasive for the tap type. Lubrication lacking or wrong quality or specification. copper and soft ductile brasses but will also cut stainless's and titanium and nickel materials. 28 . 8. Tap has reached the extent of its life. and 11. or items 3. The fluteless tap offers an alternative forming by displacing the material instead of cutting. Tap reversing with swarf trapped. Consider type of tap used. 10. Tap Breaks 12. and 8.PRESTO ® FLUTELESS ROLL (Cold Forming) TAPS Fluteless or cold forming taps can be used in a wide variety of materials from steel. 7. look at items 1. and 8.g. aluminium. 4. Feed pressure on tap producing thin or deformed threads. Rapid Tap Wear 10. 6. Tap hitting the bottom of a blind hole.g. (see thread charts on page 30) the fluteless tap also can tap faster than a standard tap see (speed chart on page 29) Lubrication is of the utmost importance in thread forming. 9. 5. Speed too fast also consider items 3. Tap blocked with swarf. Incorrect sharpening e. Drilled core hole to small see thread charts. SOME COMMON REASONS FOR TAP FAILURES Tap Cuts Oversize 1. 9. with an extreme pressure additive is advisable in soluble oils. (c) Chamfer lead too short. Tap Cutting Edges Chip 6. 2. they tend to clog the flutes of conventional taps. chamfer relief uneven or to excessive. 5. 3. Poor Thread Finish 11. 3. (b) Incorrect thread relief. 8.
