HSS Left Hand Tap

HSS has been manufacturing and selling taps for quite some time now but overtime they have been able to build up a reputation for selling some of the best taps in America. The HSS left hand tap is especially designed to serve two purposes i.e. last longer than any other tap in America and to be the cheapest in terms of quality to price ratio. While many people consider HSS to be an expensive brand the fact is that they can actually help many businesses save money in the long term owing to their high quality taps that do not need to be replaced very often.

There are a number of reasons why people opt to purchase a HSS left hand tap as compared to other brands of taps which includes:

  • A HSS left hand tap is built to last longer than most other taps made from the same material
  • When you install a HSS left hand tap you experience almost no downtime since the tap lasts very long
  • You can find a tap manufactured by HSS for almost any machine both old and new
  • HSS taps are very common and can be easily purchased from most online and offline stores

How much does a HSS left had tap cost?

On average HSS taps cost around $12 a piece, however, the price of your tap will mainly depend on the size, type and the material it is made from. For instance a speed steel tap is going to be a few dollars more expensive than just a steel tap but it will last much longer. Also larger taps are more expensive than smaller taps so the size you need for your machine will also play an important part in the price of the tap. In addition purchasing in bulk means that you can avail a discount which ranges from 2% to 10% on your overall purchase.

Finding a HSS left hand tap

The easiest way to find exactly what you are looking for will be to search online. There are quite a few online stores that sell HSS taps and if you input your specifications you should be able to find what you need pretty quickly. But many online stores may not list every tap they have so if you do not see what you need on their website you should give them a call, many times the store will tell you to wait a few days for them to get it for you.

Old HSS left hand tap for your machine

HSS manufactures taps for many old machines but there is no guarantee that HSS manufactures taps for your particular machine. The only way to really find out will be to either call up an HSS distributor or probably email HSS themselves. Often times HSS or a distributor may have a few taps left over from a discontinued series which can be expensive since they are so hard to find. But if you purchase as many as you can you can so that you are all set for the foreseeable future.
