Machining tip #176

 

Taps with spiral flutes are primarily intended for threading in blind holes. The helical flute transports the swarf back away from the cutting edges and out of the hole, avoiding swarf being packed in the flutes or at the bottom of the hole. This minimises the danger of breaking the tap and improves thread quality.
