  • taps

    I have small taps that I cannot identify for size. Can they be identified by measuring the number of threads with a thread pitch gage and measuring the OD with a mike.?

    yes you can.
    how many do you have?
    you can get a thread measuring plate from Brownell's, Screw Checker i think, its great for checking things like this...jim

      Be advised that tap major diameters are a trifle larger than the nominal size of the standard thread to achieve male crest/female root thread clearance. Also taps have circular relief so measure at the thread crest only. Smaller taps may have three flutes compounding the problem.
