The hardened steel fingers of Walton Tap Extractors fit in the flutes of a broken tap to back it out simply and safely. This effective method has been used since 1908. They are available in every tap size, both inch and metric, as handy sets or individual pieces. Tap Extractors will fit both NC and NF taps.
Walton offers two styles of Tap Extensions that extend the reach of standard taps and allow tapping in deep holes and awkward locations. Use of Style B Tap Extensions will virtually eliminate the need for costly, special-length taps. They can be used over and over because they won't wear out, become dull or break.
Style B Features:
- Accurate, easy access into hard-to-reach tapping locations. The smaller socket end OD permits the extension to pass through a standard liner bushing.
- Construction to close tolerances and carefully heat-treated alloy steel for strength and durability. Square and round sockets conform to size standards of leading tap manufacturers.
- A secure hold. Each extension is designed for a specific tap size. The tap, supported by the close-fitting deep socket of the extension, is held firmly in position by two socket set screws bearing 90° apart on the square of the tap.
- Low cost. Extensions are considerably less costly than special length taps and can be used again and again.
