    Evan's post Albums is missing a photo of his tap holder. If anyone can recover this or knows how it was made please respond.

    The tap won't break if it is of good quality and the hole is the right size and the material is within the capability of the tap. You need to make some tap holders like this:

    The hex shaft is just an old screw driver bit driven into a slightly undersize hole in the short piece of mild steel bar. The tap has a small flat ground on it opposite the markings. I wouldn't be without them in the common sizes. Great for freehand drill tapping too."
