Spiral Point Taps

Spiral point taps are frequently called “gun taps” because they shoot the chips cut by the angular cutting edge forward.  This style is the most efficient and cost effective when tapping a through hole.  The two and three flute styles of spiral point tap allow effective chip evacuation and produce clean threads under normal production conditions.
