I am in a course for Millwriting/Machining and we are currently dealing with taps. You are supposed to use a cutting fluid when tapping and quite frequently. As well indeed like other people have said you have to go back a quarter turn for every half turn you advance to break the chips inside the flutes. Hope I helped.
