What kind of holder secures a square ended tap?

The Lisle tap holder sockets are the same as the Snap-on version, just priced at a 50% discount.  [big grin]  Lisle manufactures these for Snap-on.

This positive socket drive stuff always makes me nervous because I've had my share of hardened taps being broken off in various materials...and that is always a huge PITA.

@Cheese  MSC has a big selection of the thread forming taps.

Hey Ron, thanks for the heads-up, I ran across that today after I read Richard's post.

I decided to investigate this new thread forming technology today on the MSC website.

When I first looked at it about 4-5 years ago MSC said there were about 100 thread forming taps available to purchase.

Today they said there were over 8000 taps available...how the world turns in just 4-5 years.

Dang! I just realized that you flipped a vise over to get the tail vise, brilliant. Thanks for sharing.

The toolmaker's vise is now back in stock! https://www.leevalley.com/en-ca/shop/tools/workshop/workbenches/vises/110469-toolmakers-vise?item=70G1115

At $29.50 Cdn, it's pretty much the cheapest in the market, based on my previous research. I missed it last time, and I'm getting one now.

That’s a really handy item Chuck…I keep a Palmgren version on the drill press table permanently. Just used it yesterday for drilling small aluminum parts. Dinner winner.  [smile]
