TM Smith Tool’s LCTH general-purpose compensating tap holder works for a broad range of tapping applications. The tap holder has tension and/or compression for non-synchronous machines, and radial float to compensate for misalignment between the workpiece and spindle. It is available with a straight shank manufactured from premium grade steel that can withstand harsh environments and rigorous use.

Available in series 1 and 2, these tap holders also feature quick-change design for convenience and speed. There are five different tension and compression combinations available including full tension, which gives a solid start for accurate thread depth.

These toolholders can also be used in an end mill holder, collet chuck or lathe tool block.
