Yesterday I set up a new job that was supposed to get an 8-32 hole tapped 5/8 deep and wouldn’t ya know it, after all the smack I written about tapping small holes, I was using a spiral flute cutting tap and I busted the dang tap on the first hole. I hadn’t broken a tap in 6 or 7 years before that.

I switched to a form tap and ran the rest of the 125 piece order with no problem.
