E-Z LOK™ Tap - HSS - STI - Bottoming - 9/16-18
E-Z LOK™ 9/16-18 Tap Drill
Our 9/16-18 taps operate in the same manner as “standard” taps, but produce an oversized thread specifically for E-Z Coil™ threaded inserts.
During insert installation, the threads cut by this 9/16-18 tap drill form the E-Z Coil™ insert into the desired thread size. STI taps are ideal for tapping holes in softer metals that require a strong threaded insert.
E-Z LOK’s E-Z Coil™ 9/16-18 bottoming taps are manufactured from high speed steel (HSS) for superior durability. We offer STI taps in a wide range of inch, metric, and spark plug sizes to meet your unique requirements.
- These are taps that will produce a larger than nominal size threaded hole to accommodate a helical screw thread insert. A variety of styles are available to tap holes in soft materials where a strong threaded insert is desired.
