A 1/2-inch pipe can be fabricated according to the ANSI Standard Pipe Chart and Engineers Edge With a 14 taper tap, the correct drill bit would be 23/32 and with a straight tap, a 47/64 bit would be used. 3/4 inch is the standard size. The drill bit is in 32nd. The team has a 24/32 record and is in 64th place. The ratio of 48/64 is acceptable. No information is provided regarding whether or not the tap is straight or tapered and, as a result, it looks like it is In the case of 3/4," if it is not for brain surgery, I would use it, but make sure you use some sort of sealant, such as Teflon tape, of appropriate type based on whether you use natural gas, petroleum,
We are sorry to inform you. The China was nice to use for a small, light job, but it would not be a good option for a lager, heavier job or continual

I installed a new air filter and reinserted the system. A magnesium air compressor head was damaged when the threads of an air filter broke off. It was impossible to remove the threads. The torch I used only ended up being a disaster, as I blew a hole through their heads! Repairing the damage with metal epoxy was a simple task for me. Despite being ordered two days ago, my tap was delivered the very next day. The threads in these are very sharp. The reamer went right through the old threads and epoxy without any difficulty. We at Amazon thank you for making life easier by providing access to almost everything so easily and generally at lower prices than we would find.
Most often, a cheap tool is simply cheap in terms of its quality. Because I was waiting for it to break, I used this tool slowly and carefully because I was worried it would break. It ended up doing its job without breaking, so I am happy to use it.
You will find this standard 1/2" NPT thread tap in plumbing. The tap has so far only been used on brass, but it does work very well and has cut 6 sets of threads perfectly. As well as cleaning or fixing threads that are damaged, this could also be used. The tap has a tapered design so unless you are drilling all the way to the depth, this one won't fit.
The product is well described and of good quality.
The tap appears to be very well made. Using my hand-crank, I spun it quite hard into a stainless steel tank whose threads had to be cleaned up and a little lengthened. I believe that using a less expensive tap didn't cause it to break.
It never occurred to me that a handle to go with it would likely cost more than $50.
I used this tap to restore a water heater drain that was damaged by cutting. It worked well and restored the threads perfectly. I got just what I was looking for for a lot less than half of what I would have paid at a hardware store.
