When cutting new threads or even chasing and cleaning existing threads, the traditional T-piece-type tap holder can be awkward to manage and keep straight when working in cramped on inaccessible conditions.

This tap socket set from Laser Tools (part number 6058) enables the use of standard ¼in or 3/8in drive ratchet handles, extensions and other accessories to grip and hold the tap and greatly increase accessibility.

The sockets are manufactured from chrome vanadium for strength and are magnetic to hold the taps securely. The square-section sockets are sized to fit commonly used taps: the four ¼in drive sockets are 1mm, 2mm, 3mm and 4mm; the four 3/8in drive sockets are 5mm, 6mm, 7mm and 8mm. Supplied with a handy socket rail to keep them secure in the tool box.

The technician will find this set really useful in restricted access conditions. Terrific value and available now from your local Laser Tools supplier, the tap socket set is typically priced at £27.29 inc VAT, but remember to check for the best prices and special offers.
