The company has developed a new modular tension/compression tapping device that turns a basic tap holder into a tapping system. Nicknamed "The Stubby," this short-projection adapter can be used in the tightest of areas, allowing machining to be done much closer to the workpiece. Stubby's modular design creates a quick-change toolholding system using a standard end-mill holder or any tooling with straight-bore connection. It's also adaptable to screw machine, dial machine and turret lathe applications, and it can use either a ball-drive or tang-drive tap adapter.
