How to Tap Aluminum T Slots
If you’re looking to tap aluminum t slots, there are a few things you need to know. First, you’ll need a drill bit that’s slightly larger than the t slot.
Second, you’ll need a tap. And finally, you’ll need some clamps to hold the piece while you drill and tap.
1. Drill the hole in the desired location.
Make sure the bit is slightly larger than the t slot so that it will fit snugly in the hole when it’s tapped.
2. Insert the tap into the hole and secure it with clamps.
Use a hammer to tap the bit into the aluminum until it’s fully tapped. Be careful not to hit the side of the t slot with your hammer – this can cause damage that will require repair or replacement.
3. Remove the tap and clean up any debris that may have been created during tapping. Replace any damaged parts as necessary and then your ready to go!.
