This page lists our range of metric taps from M2 to M8 including taper, second and bottom taps.
Also listed below are tap wrenches suitable for use with these taps.

The taps listed are standard coarse thread (with the exception of M6x0.75 fine thread listed at the bottom of the page). Other thread forms also available including metric fine, UNC, UNF, BSF, BSW, BSP, NPT, Model Engineer - please click on the thread name to go to the relevant page, or  e mail us with your requirements.

Please note that these are high quality professional standard taps that with correct care and use will give many years of service. Not to be confused with the cheaper and inferior 'market stall' quality tools that are available from some sources and are good for a couple of holes and completely useless when used with certain materials.

All our taps and dies are manufactured from HSS (High Speed Steel) or HQS (a manufacturers brand name for HSS with improved toughness properties). We do not stock low grade carbon steel taps and dies.

These taps are suitable for working with a large range of hard and soft ferrous and non-ferrous metals including stainless steel.

If you have any queries regarding the type of tap you need for a particular job, please do not hesitate to send your questions by e mail to us and we will do our very best to assist.

Metric Taps & Tap Drills
Thread Pitch Tap type MF Ref Price Each  
The M2 Tap Sets listed below, ref MF-T203SDIN are DIN352 taps.
These should always be used in sets of three to obtain a full depth thread as the taper and second taps will cut to only partial depth. The bottom tap then cuts the final full depth thread. This reduces the risk of breaking a tap which is more likely with the smaller sizes.
To aid easy identification, DIN 352 taper taps are marked with a single ring on the shaft, seconds have 2 rings and bottom taps have no ring.
M2 0.4 Set of 3 DIN352 Taps MF-T20S3DIN £16.95

Tapping drill for M2 (1.6mm dia) MF-DB-016 £1.32

All the individual  taps below will cut full threads (providing enough penetration is available in the case of the taper taps). We always recommend the first threads are cut with a taper tap followed by a second, and then followed by the bottom tap in the case of blind holes.
