Tap Wrenches hold taps and apply torque to cut female threads so you can make custom nuts or holes in metal that accept machine screws. They also hold screw extractors, which let you remove stripped or other stuck screws without damage to the rest of the piece.
Adjustable tap wrenches easily install taps; you simply have to tighten the wrench around it and go. You can apply a great amount of force by using their longer handles, to keep your work piece in good condition, ensure that you only tighten the tap to specifications. Adjustable tap wrenches are very wide compared to other models, so make sure to grab the shortest-handle version that's compatible with the tap size that you're using to ensure a perfect fit no matter how tight the space.
For convenience, and to fit in small spaces, use a T-handle tap wrench. These specialty wrenches are easier to use than the adjustable types, since you can turn the entire wrench with just one hand. The shorter handle means a few more turns, but you reduce breakage since you apply less power per turn.
Die wrenches hold dies that cut male threads over metal rods. Combine them with a tap and you can create your own bolt and matching nut or screw hole to easily bolt any two pieces together for professional-level security and strength. Make sure to stock up on several sizes of blank cylinders so you can create a bolt for every situation.
Tap wrenches allow you to prepare your custom metal pieces for screws, which make your fabrication process more efficient. These hand tools are simple to use, and can save you several hours' worth of work per project by removing stuck screws instead of discarding and replacing an entire piece.
