Tap - Gun Point

Gun (or spiral) point taps are designed for tapping through holes or blind holes with adequate bottom clearance. The special gun nose will push metal chips forward during tapping. This helps keep the tap free of cutting chips and allows free flow of coolant.  

TapX can grind all gun point tap features in one setup. On this tap, TapX grinds flute, thread and crest, chamfer and gun point.
