View Full Version : Buck Versatapper

I recently purchased a Buck Supreme Versatapper, Model 71100 (6100) witch can handle taps from #10 to 1/2".
The tapper is manufactured by Buck Supreme, Inc. of Grand Rapids, Michigan.
I have no operator's manual with it and I was wanting to find out how to adjust the tourqe on the tapper for various size taps.
If anyone can tell me how or supply me with a website for Buck Supreme, Inc. where I can download a manual or purchase on from the company I would greatly appreciate it.

I have a Versatapper. Mine doesn't have any way to adjust the torque.

Varying the downfeed force on the drill press handle is the only way I know to increase/decrease torque.

If the adjustment is not right up front where you can see it then it's a machine tapper and is only a reversing attachment. We have a few tapmatic heads that were ordered that way by one of our morons that though they were saving money.
