Adaptor with Safety Clutch (TCS1B)


TradeMax TCS1B adaptor is the chuck used to attach a machine spiral flute tap to your TradeMax tapping machine and comes with a safety clutch allowing you to use taps M2-M14. An adaptor is required for each size of spiral flute tap that you use for tapping blind holes.

It is important to use only spiral flute taps in the TradeMax tapping machine.  Straight flute taps are for hand tapping only.  Spiral flute taps are used for power tapping.  Tapping using a TradeMax tapping machine is power tapping.


Adaptor with Safety Clutch TCS1B

The TCS1B Adaptor is the chuck that is used to attach your machine spiral flute tap to your TradeMax tapping machine.

The TCS1B Adaptor includes a safety clutch. The safety clutch is essentially an adjustable torque clutch to match the tapping depth to the material that you are tapping.

Set the torque of the safety clutch, insert your spiral flute tap into the adaptor, attached the adaptor to your TradeMax tapping machine and your ready to tap your material. When the tap has reached the depth set by the sefety clutch the tap will stop and the adaptor will spin in the safety clutch.

The safety clutch is designed to help prevent damage to the tapping machine, the tap and the material you are tapping.

The TCS1B allows you to use taps sizes M2 right up to M14 and is dependent on the model of TradeMax tapping machine you are using.

When ordering your TCS1B adaptor you need to specify the shank Diameter and the Square at the end of the shank (Dia Ø × Square) of the taps you will be using.  A complete chart of available adaptors which fit each tap size can be found on our Adaptor (Shank Dimensions) page (opens in a new page).
