How to Make the Coolest Little Tap Wrench that you can no Longer Buy

Brass Hammer Giveaway:

This was a fun little project, I learned from it and gained a bit more experience on the lathe and milling machine. I also really enjoyed nickel plating which turned out fantastic.

As always I’m happy to answer any questions.

  1. The grinding of this piece in the beginning is pure genius. I didn't even know you could do that!!!

  2. Wow the quality of your work. I have the larger eclipse No246 tap wrench and your right, itโ€™s just so much nicer than other wrenches.

  3. The grinding setup have should get the part within 0.050mm I used to do this on my 1x32inch belt grinder but the table broke when I swapped its bolt handle for an 8mm bolt

  4. Awesome job. Wow amazing work. Hopefully you get great use out of it for many years to come my friend. Forge On. Fab On. Weld On. Keep Forge lit. Keep Making. God bless.

  5. The fact that you can make beautiful precision tools at home is mind-blowing to me. Great video!

  6. Try pulling out the vinyl you don't need before transferring it with the tape, you can see what you are doing much easier

  7. Refractory sand and mineral oil are better for quenching. But for health reasons must have adequate ventilation. It gives superior toughness qualities. As an alternative use vegetable oil instead. Fill a metal bucket with sand and oil. Let your item sit in it for at least 10-15 minutes or more.
    ''Tensile strength, impact strength, hardness, percentage elongation and yield strength of the material quenched with such oils (compared with water as a standard) is found to vary with the type of oil used.
    With olive oil and palm kernel oil, for instance, the hardness values are lower. On the other hand, the toughness is improved because these oils have better impact energy values. The use of appropriate antioxidants can prevent increases in viscosity following its use in quenching due to the formation of oxidation products at these high temperatures.''
