Description

This is a sturdy little tap holder I printed when I purchased an M5 tap from McMaster and subsequently realized that holding a tap with a pair of pliers is a miserable thing to do.


Tap is held in place with a #2 x 0.25in Plastite screw, though the set screw probably isn't necessary.  If the fit is tight (it should be...),  warm the end of the tap over your stove and then press-fit it into the holder. Don't get it hot enough that you damage the heat treatment!


Source files are included so the hole can be modified to fit other tap sizes.
