Tip of the Month
June 2014
The combination of chamfer, rake angle and radial clearance is very important when ordering tap chasers. The use of higher radial clearance generally results in better chaser life. However, chasers with greater clearance can result in reduced contact between the work and the chasers. This can cause chatter. Chatter can also be caused by the tap not being supported properly or by a loose machine spindle.

If chatter is not corrected by lightly honing the cutting edge, reduced clearance is suggested. Machines incorporating positive feed allow for higher radial clearance. Conversely, where manual feed is used, lower radial clearance is required to produce "nut action" and assist feeding and maintain proper lead.

When ordering tap chasers, the machine feeding method should be specified to ensure that proper radial clearance is considered.
