FAQs

How to use a hand tap?

Depending on the type of tap being used and the applications, many can be used with a tap wrench or power tool. For smooth and precise thread cutting, a wrench tool is more suitable, whereas a power tool is suited to rapid thread cutting. Once attached, the hand tap can be rotated to cut the thread in the required material.

What are the hand taps made of?

RS PRO hand tap sets are manufactured from high speed steel (HSS), offering excellent corrosion resistance and the ability to withstand higher temperatures.

What is chamfer?

Chamfer is a term that refers to the size of the threads on a tap that taper, allowing for the cutting thread to be gradually enlarged.

What is BSP?

BSP is a term that refers to trade size rather than diameter and stands for British Standard Pipe. It is an internationally recognised term that relates to thread and drill bit sizes.
