Tap Extensions for Machine and Hand Tapping

Walton offers two styles of Tap Extensions that extend the reach of standard taps and allow tapping in deep holes and awkward locations. Use of either Style A or Style B Tap Extensions will virtually eliminate the need for costly, special-length taps. They can be used over and over because they won't wear out, become dull or break.
