Adjustable Spring-Loaded Tap Guide
This Adjustable Spring-Loaded Tap Guide has a 1/2″ diameter shank and a 3/16″ diameter guiding pin that extends outwardly from the shank. Both the shank and the pin are made from hardened and ground steel for accuracy and long service life.
A helical compression spring that is housed inside the shank biases the guiding pin outwardly from the shank. A set screw that is screwed into an end of the shank can be rotated to adjust the tension on the spring. Adjusting the spring tension adjusts the biasing force that is exerted on the pin by the spring so that the pin is able to apply a force against a tap that is appropriate for the tap’s size.
The guiding pin of the Adjustable Spring-Loaded Tap Guide has a pointed end and a hollow end. The pin is reversible so that the pointed end can positively engage with a tap that has a hollow shank end, and so that the hollow end of the pin can positively engage with a tap that has a pointed shank end.
Attractive knurling on an end portion of the shank provides for improved grip when handling the Adjustable Spring-Loaded Tap Guide.
