Depth of the thread cut by a tap? Answered
If I was to drill a deeper hole, I buy a longer drill bit of the intended diameter. I am sure the same thing apply to the taps as well. However, in their specifications, I do not see anything about how deep a cut they would make. So, my question is, what should I be looking if I need to make a deeper thread than than the tap I already have? I mean is there a number which would say that this tap goes only one inch deep and so on?
