12AB3 Alpine Tap TIN coated


Product Description

Standard alpine tap for use with metal top sheet skis.  When mounting a ski with a metal top sheet it is also a good idea to tap the hole afterwards.  This will help prevent the dreaded "VOLCANOING" and allow the screw to thread pas the metal top sheet easier and not ruin the threads.  This tap also features a T.I.N coating.  T.I.N. is a gold colored coating that increases the hardness of a regular high speed drill from Rockwell 62 standard to Rockwell 82. It also increases the lubricity by 35%, giving a much smoother, cooler running drill. The bottom line is that the life and sharpness of the drill is easily doubled. (not for use with Binding Freedom inserts)

    If you need to tap for binding screws you can't go wrong with the 12AB3 from BF/SVST. The right tap at the right price.

  2. Works Well 4 Star Review

    It's a tap, so there's not a whole lot you can say about it. It's clearly well-made. The screws went into my Head Monsters like butter, with zero apparent volcanoing. Solid product.
