Learn to use a Tap & Die to Cut Threads



Taps & Dies are simple metalworking tools that let you cut threads into nearly any metal – but they have a reputation of being difficult and frustrating to use.

  • You have the die stock upside down. The ridge on the bottom is supposed to be on the opposite side you are threading it from so the die doesn't get pushed out as you screw it on.

  • On a 10mm metal sheet what should be the maximum size of Bolt and nut so as not to compromise the structural integrity of the 10mm metal ? Thanks a ton in advance.

  • I have read that there are two types of dies. Some have round bodies, as in the video, and the others have hex-shaped bodies. The round dies are for making new threads. The hex dies are intended for cleaning up or repairing damaged existing threads. If you go shopping online, it's not always clear what is being offered – check carefully. I also believe (not sure) many dies offered are just 'Carbon Steel' which is OK for many jobs, but others are High Speed Steel (HSS) which should be used on harder metals. I'm no machinist, just a hobbyist, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

  • IMHO: 4-FLUTE TAPS BREAK TOO EASILY. 2, OR 3-FLUTE TAPS HOLD UP MUCH BETTER

  • Can you re-tap a hole CCW?

  • Excellent video. Had a thought about how to keep the tap near-perfectly perpendicular. If you took a piece of tube stock that's about half the length of the tap and only slightly larger in diameter, you could use the piece of tube stock as a sleeve to keep the tap more perpendicular until it's dug in enough to where you don't have to guide it much anymore. Just a thought.

  • The other video I watched didn't explain the tap need to be drilled before trying to thread the hole. I felt stupid but this video makes this clear from the on set. I am sure its a no brainier but if your gonna give instructions you need to start from the beginning. Thanks this helped me out!

  • TIGHTEN UP THAT GRINDER GAP. WEAR SAFETY GLASSES. KEEP THAT TAP STRAIGHT. USE MORE LUBE

  • Can you still use the tap and die if it didn't come with a handle. Just purchased a set that goes from .7mm to 2mm. It didn't come with a handle

  • You should use oil if working with any kind of metal, friction = heat = softer metal = warped metal = problem.
    Also if you have some bolts that have damaged threads you can run them through a dye to fix the threading.

  • Which particular cloudkicker song is this? The link goes to "Not to Scale Or Painted" but that's different to the track in the video 🙂

  • Best explanation I could find on YouTube. Some of us didn't have the luxury of being taught this when we were young.

  • Question: Are both the Tap and the die rotation in clockwise cutting direction?? for the screw to enter clockwise?

  • WD 40 good for some lube as you cut? That's all I got around the house. Going to tap the brake mount on my bike's shock.
