Spring loaded tap guide, precision made in the USA. These tap guides are made from T-416 Stainless steel and the tips are hardened. We use a closed end ground spring that is also manufactured in the USA.The tip on this tap follower is reversible, one side is a point the other end has a cone cut into it. This way it can be used on some taps that do not have a hole in the top to accept the point. The guide will fit in a 1/2 in chuck or collet. Most of our products ship same day depending on order time, or next day. Shipping is free in the US.
