Tap Holder Uses Old Drill Chuck

lathe_tapThere are lots of designs floating around for tap holders for lathes.  This one uses an old drill chuck and  looks easy to make.  In addition to ensuring that a tap gets started straight, it can be used to drill holes with very small bits.  By gripping the knurled body you can get a feel for how the drill bit is doing and control the torque so you don’t break it.

A human being should have the courage and skill to become aware of his feelings, to keep trying to learn how to deal with them, and to become free to choose how and to express them.
