I had a chance to sit down with Barry Young a while back and I asked him to talk about taps, tapping fluids, and tap handles. I wanted his overview to be as basic as possible so it would be beneficial to beginners, but I ended up learning a few things myself – especially about novel cutting fluids (part 2). I videotaped Barry’s commentary and divided it into 3 parts:
Part 1: Taps
Part 2: Tapping Fluids and Lubricants
Part 3: Tap Handles
Remember, I asked Barry to keep things simple so his commentary on taps and tapping fluids isn’t exhaustive. If you’d like to add something to the conversation (like your favorite tapping fluid) please do so by clicking the link below to join the forum discussion related to this post.
