Head: Taps for E-Z LOK™ Solid wall Threaded Inserts

A tap is a tool used to cut a screw thread on the inside surface of a hole. Whether you are repairing a damaged thread or threading new material, you want to use a high quality E-Z LOK high speed steel (HSS) tap. E-Z LOK HSS taps are durable and provide optimum cutting performance.

Although there isn’t much heat build up when hand-tapping, lubricating the cutting threads before tapping can reduce friction and help with chip removal. You can use a specialty tapping fluid, light machine oil, or even a little WD-40.

E-Z LOK taps are ideal for cutting thread in soft metals like:

  • Aluminum
  • Cast Iron
  • Mild Steel

E-Z LOK HSS taps are durable and dependable. They have the following characteristics:

  • Excellent toughness
  • High wear hardness
  • High retention of hardness
  • High working hardness
