Assorted tooling for handling taps and dies, both by hand and in the lathe.
 

DIE STOCKS & TAP HANDLES

 

Nicely made tap handles and die stocks for hand use.  We use them here in the shop on a daily basis.  Sometimes we even use the tap handles as holding fixtures for chamfering work etc.

DIE HOLDER

 

This is a handy little tool we use here in the shop.  It is essentially a holder which will hold either a 13/16 or 1” button die which rotates on the shank mounted in the tail stock.  One runs the die holder up to the work with the lathe spindle turning the part to be threaded, hold the holder until the desired length of thread has been generated and release.  Stop the lathe, reverse the spindle holding the holder until the die disengages from the part.  In this manner one can generate threads that are geometrically correct rather than off at some odd angle to the axis of the part.
