« Part 4: Finishing the Tap Part 5 of Tap and Screw Jig Tutorial series no next part


After recieving a few questions about the previous video I realized I may have left out some details about the cutter. So in this video I better explain how to dimension the cutter and pick the steel.

Thanks for the video Carter. I used stainless steel on mine and it worked just fine too.

Greatly appreciate the clarification of the details. Although they may be simple in nature they make things much clearer. Another good job. Thanks
