Long Shank Taps
Long shank taps.(approximately 6" overall length). Made of high speed steel. Available in 2 type; Nut Taps, and Pulley Taps. Pulley taps have a long shank that is the same size as the tap to give the tap extra reach. Nut taps have a reduced shank that is smaller than the tap size. Beginning threads on the nut tap are tapered to help guide the tap into the hole. Designed to tap a through hole in thicker material.
