A thread is cut on the inside hole surface by a tap, thereby creating a female surface which will in effect functions as a nut. High Speed Steel (HSS) taps are more resistant to higher temperatures allowing them to maintain their hardness and are therefore more durable. A spiral point plug tap, also known as a gun tap, breaks the chips in front of the cutting action ejecting them into the flutes. This helps to prevent clogging.
