robk Posted November 10, 2004 Share Posted November 10, 2004 Have a little bit of a problem here. Snapped a #4 tap inside a blind pocket that is over 2" deep (the pocket, not the tapped hole ). The tapped hole is only about .100 away from the wall of the blind pocket so there is no way to mill it out. Tried the Walton Brand extractor, but just can't get it. The part is way too big to stick in the EDM... I have heard of an adaptor for a Bridgeport type machine that works similar to an EDM (without the fluid ) to burn out the broken tap. Anyone familiar with something like that? Will it arc and fry my A$$? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites
