Tapping Wax


Tapping Wax provides a clean, fast and precision method for tapping blind holes while also extending tap life. After the blind hole has been drilled, a solid piece of tapping wax of the proper diameter is placed in the hole. When the hole is tapped, the chips are embedded in the wax and carried out through the tap flutes. The chips do not pack in the bottom of the threaded hole. The tapped hole is now clean and ready to use, no blowing out is needed.

Available in 6 long tap size cartridges which are easily cut to required length.Tapping wax for most tap diameters is available in one-half or one pound boxes.
