This is my first go around with the pass around box. WOW, what a box, made to fit the USPS box perfectly. Great job putting it together. Thanks for letting me participate in this.
I was able to go through it this evening and repack it, ready to ship in the AM.
Here’s my take from the box, the taps were multiples of each so I took one of each.

SClead, hope you like the tap guide, I made me one, and decided it would be good for the box so I made another. Did another in which I did concave tip for other taps. I know I still have not got the stuff off my phone so I can post it.

Thank you! I'm definitely a fan. I've got the small, regular ol' 1/2" diameter one with reversible pointed/concave tip that I made, but I wound my own spring which rendered it pretty much useless. It's better at jamming up than anything else. For some reason, I never remember to hit the spring drawer when I'm at the hardware store to bring it to life. Yours is much more stout, my first thought was using it to locate center punched parts in the drill press :grin:

It would prob work for that as well. Made the shells, THen measured ordered a pack of springs off Amazon, Then measured the collapsed height and make the plungers. Hope it works well for you

The box arrived today...... I’m not sure how long it’s going to take me to get it moving again hopefully sometime next week.

Nice haul Brento.

Do you mean that you've never tapped a hole?

GTD, AFAIK, is the mark of Greenfield Tap and Die, a long time maker of . . .

I think he might be talking about a spiral flute tap and thinking that GTD relates to that..... GTD just stands for Greenfield tap and die....

No one of the taps i picked out had a single flute for a metric thread. If i remember corectly i believe that style tap doesnt cut the threads but more or less forms it by moving the material?

On other news the box is on its way.

Ohhh you mean the M6 cold forming tap?? The tap on the far right in your pictures?? They are usually used more for power tapping sheet metal.

What drill size would you use for that since that tap isnt like a standard style tap

I emptied the box last night and found a reamer broken so I removed it. I repaired the loose thread so the screw will tighten down properly. Thanks to all who have contributed to this box. This is what I kept from the box.
