A Jiffy-Tap is the light, compact, and powerful answer to production lead screw tapping or die threading in close quarters. It will easily drive taps up through 1-1/2" N.C. size in medium cast iron with ample allowance for a dull tap. Jiffy-Tap units have a 6 HP capability, yet will mount side-by-side on 3-5/16" spacing. On special order, this can be reduced to 3-3/16". The maximum length from end of motor to end of tap chuck is less than 20". No other tapping unit can deliver the long life and high torque of the Jiffy-Tap in such a small frame.

The standard Jiffy-Tap has a stroke of 2-1/8" for taps up to 3/8" diameter. For taps up to 5/8" diameter this stroke should be reduced to 2" of stroke and 1-3/4" of stroke for tap diameters larger then 5/8". An extended stroke unit is available with 3-1/4" of stroke.
