    Tapping Speeds and Feeds

    thats the problem, 1/4-20 is 20 threads per inch = 200 rpm 10 ipm, 3/8-16 = 160 rpm 10 ipm also are you sure you have rigid tapping?

    Tapping Speeds and Feeds

    depends on machine and size of tap. feed is dependent on speed and threads per inch also the quality and type of tap (spiral point, spiral flute, etc) on our haas it was recommended under 300rpm
