About Recoil® Insert Taps

  • Recoil® taps differ from standard taps dimensionally and only Recoil® Screw Thread Insert (STI) Taps are suitable for use with Recoil® wire thread inserts.
  • They have a larger diameter but the same pitch as a standard tap in order to accommodate the wire insert.

Recoil® taps are available with taper, intermediate, and bottoming leads.

Also available:

  • Pilot nose taps - For spark plug applications
  • Machine taps - For high volume production
