Taps are used to cut threads into pre-drilled holes. They may be hand-driven using a tap wrench or machine operated using rotary machines like lathes. Recoil insert taps have a larger diameter but the same pitch as a standard tap to accommodate Recoil Inserts. They are available in taper, intermediate, and bottoming leads to cater to specific applications. AIMS Industrial Supplies also offer other specialty taps to meet various tapping requirements.
