Champion Cutting Tool's Brute Platinum XLT Tapper was designed to increase tapping productitivity when threading large amounts of holes in ferrous and non-ferrous metals. Outperforming the traditional way of tapping, the XLT Tapper taps holes 10X faster than handheld tapping using a tap wrench. The XLT Tapper is the perfect tool for various industries including architectural metal and glass, steel fabrication, elevator maintenance, automotive, MRO and more... Specifically engineered for heavy duty applications on site or in the shop, the XLT Tapper can tap steel/ferrous materials from #10 up to 9/16" (14mm) and aluminum/non-ferrous materials from #10 up to 5/8" (16mm). High tech features such as auto reverse, speed control, and pivoting tap collet reduce tap breakage saving you time and money on the job. With the operator in mind, the XLT Tapper is easy to use and lightweight, featuring a depth-stop to control threading depth, and includes a spindle clutch for safer jam-free tapping. For optimal performance, Brute Platinum XL22 Spiral Point Taps and BruteLube Cutting Fluid are recommended for fast and easy tapping. The XLT Tapper is proudly part of the Brute Platinum Family at Champion Cutting Tool-Heavy Duty Tools for your heavy duty jobs!
