On a lot of the taps, that had been ordered based on the e-Taps pricing, we were not getting the +24 pricing. The only one was the M13 plug tap.

This way, we get the same pricing no matter if it is a plug or bottoming, and the prices are cheaper as well.

The only raise in price is on the dies. They are going to cost us an extra $5.70 each, however, the savings on the taps will offset the cost of the dies.

I favor switching.

I'll likely change my order to switch all taps to bottoming taps because there's no difference in price.

That's unless somebody more experienced with kitless construction tells me that it's a boneheaded move.

Somewhere I read that bottoming taps are more difficult (or next to impossible?) for starting taps in a hole. Couldn't find reference I originally saw but, maybe our kitless experts can shed some light on this.
Thanks, Jeff

Getting started, you DO NOT want bottoming taps. Those are generally used for demonstrators (clear acrylic threads) where you want a minimal amount of thread showing...

Plug taps have a taper and the first 3 or so threads are NOT completely formed.. meaning you have to thread in further say on a cap then in necessary by 3-5 threads. On a demonstrator this would be rather ugly.. so you'd start with the plug, thread in as far as is needed, then follow it up with the bottoming tap which will finish cutting those partially formed threads..

if you need more explanation, send me a PM.
