Extension Tap

Pulley Tap or Extension Tap - It’s a Reach!

Pulley Tap or Extension Tap - It’s a Reach!

Here’s another example of legacy term confusion. Sometimes it is necessary to use a tap with extended length. The added length may be used to add “reach” to the tool, or to allow tapping to a depth longer than the thread length of the standard blank. Maybe it’s necessary to accomplish both! The confusion lies in what to call that style of tap.
