Tap - 2-56 Spiral Point Plug Tap
2-56 Spiral Point Plug Tap
• Spiral point construction drives chips ahead of the tap,
permitting higher speeds and faster cutting with less torque.
• Recommended for higher tensile strength production tapping applications.
• Plug style spiral point taps are ideal for production tapping of through holes.
Use a #51 bit to drill the hole you want to tap. You may want to drill a slightly larger hole (#50 Drill) in difficult to to tap materials like titanium. This will reduce the chance of your tap breaking and the titanium will still be strong enough to hold the shallower threads.
