5/16" 4-Flute Tap Extractor
Remove broken taps and save the threads!
Tap Extractors let you remove broken taps without
drilling, lasers, damaged threads, scrapped parts or repair inserts.
The hardened steel fingers of Walton Tap Extractors fit in the flutes of a broken tap to back it out simply and safely.
This effective method has been used since 1908.
Three simple steps for removing broken taps _ the easy way!
Step 1: Thoroughly remove all chips of the broken tap. Insert the Extractor fingers into the flutes of the broken tap, pushing them gently, but firmly, into position. Step 2: Push the holder down until it touches the broken tap. Slide the sleeve down until it touches the work. Step 3: Apply a tap wrench to the square end of the holder. Twist forward and backward a few times to loosen, then back out the broken tap.
