Question Need help selecting nib tap(s) for triple

I am joining the group buy for kitless taps and dies. Please help me select the needed nib tap(s) for the housing threads to accept Bock and Heritance triples. Can I do it with only the appropriate "plug" tap, or will I need BOTH "plug" and "bottom" taps to get it done. I will appreciate your inputs very much.

You will not need a bottoming tap for the nib threads. Just a plug or taper tap.
Heritance is 8.4 x .75 and Bock is 7.9 x .6 for the # 6 sizes.
#5 nibs are 6.4 x .5 for Heritance and 6.4 x .6 for Bock.
You can find Bock taps at the Classic Nib.
I have 6.5 x .5 and 8.5 x .75 that will work for the Heritance nibs.
I also have the taps for Jowo feeds.
Life occasionally offers us the opportunity to make very very hard choices. I have had such offers.
