Irwin Taps & Dies
IRWIN® taps and dies offer a combination of performance and selection that let you complete any threading job quickly. Taps and dies come in machine screw, fractional and metric diameters with varied thread pitches and many standard thread types, including NC, NF and NPT. These products are available as individual pieces that are ideal for adding to your existing tool selection or as Irwin tap and die sets that combine a complete range of cutter sizes with matching handles and pitch gauges. All Irwin HANSON® taps and dies feature high carbon steel construction and have laser-etched labels for easy, long-lasting tool identification.
Irwin makes taps and dies in a variety of configurations. Irwin self-aligning taps and dies cut straight threads every time, making them an ideal choice for general use. Taper taps have a longer chamfer for cutting tough materials or deep holes while bottom taps have a very short chamfer to reach the bottom of blind holes. Use hexagon dies with Irwin wrenches for jobs in spaces too small for die stock handles, and use adjustable round dies to cut under- or over-sized threads. When using Irwin metric taps and dies on loose machine parts, consider using an Irwin vice to hold components securely while you work.
You need a strong, secure grip to make the most of Irwin taps and dies. Irwin's Performance Threading System™ combines comfortable tap and die handles with quick-change mechanisms that reduce tool setup time. Irwin also makes a complete line of traditional T-handle tap wrenches, tap adapters for use with socket wrenches and offset handle adjustable tap wrenches that are ideal for use with large diameter taps.
Irwin taps and dies put the power to handle any threading job into your hands. They come in many different sizes and thread configurations and can be used with traditional tap and die handles or Irwin's Performance Threading System. These products, like all Irwin hand tools, have a limited lifetime warranty. Find the right tools for your next threading job when you browse our selection of Irwin taps and dies.
