      A:  Hello, for re-threading we reccomend a carbon steel tap and for making new threads we reccomend high speed steel. The high speed steel tap for this size is not yet available on Homdepot.com (part number DWT64006) but we hope it is soon. Thank you, hope this is helpful.

        Saved my water filtering system. Original thread was smaller than new replacement parts, used carefully on plastic worked great.

        I needed the tap to chase the threads of the coolant drains on the engine I'm rebuilding. I did what I needed it to do and I'll have it for future projects.
