  • 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.
      Rule #1 be 10% smarter then what you\'re working on.
      Rule #2 see Rule #1
