BROKEN TAP EXTRACTORS
« on: July 09, 2018, 07:55:06 AM »
I picked up this broken tap extractor the other day. I really could have used the a couple of years ago when I broke a tap on a rifle barrel.
I got the whole set plus 2 extra extractors for $ 10.00.

Yup.   Right on the money about a sweet deal.   The replacement "fingers" are pretty readily available from machine tool suppliers.   I could have used one myself sometime back but was able to "brute force" work it out without damaging the subject item.   :tongue:

Reading the title, I was all ready to offer my condolences that you'd broken a tap extractor; but, no, you've scored!
