Details
Each set of Sherwood taps contain one taper, second and plug lead tap:

Sherwood HSS Taper Taps are used to start cutting the thread. They are tapped back from the end 6 to 10 threads before a fully threaded diameter is reached. This allows the tap to be positioned easily and correctly before it starts to cut the thread.

The Second Tap is used after the taper tap has cut threads into the hole as far as possible. It tapers back 3 or 4 threads before full thread diameter is reached.

The Plug Tap cuts thread to the bottom of a blind hole. It is only necessary to use the full set of taps when a blind hole is to be tapped.

Sherwood HSS Taps are the general purpose option for thread cutting in most materials including steel, some stainless steels, cast irons and non-ferrous materials such as Aluminium, Brass and many others.

Manufactured with precision ground flutes for producing accurate thread cutting in most materials including steel, some stainless steels, cast irons and non-ferrous materials such as Aluminium, Brass and many others.

Manufactured with precision ground flutes for producing accurate thread forms, Sherwood Taps are available in all the popular thread forms and as straight Flute 'Hand' Taps in 3 leads, Fluteless, Spiral Flute, or Spiral Point Machine Taps and also Long Series.

Sherwood Tap dimensions conform to ISO529 apart from NPT Forms which conform to ANSI 94.9. Straight Flute and Fluteless Taps are manufactured with a standard Bright Finish whereas the Machine Taps have an Oxidised Finish for best results dissipating the heat build-up associated with these applications.

Thread Forms are Class 2 medium fit tolerance.
