Subject:
taps for threading holes

Carol - now in NC Nebraska
>I want to get some hand taps to fit the Jet mini.

As I understand it, the head spindle is 1" x 8 TPI and the Jet live center is 5/8" x 11 TPI. Correct me if I am wrong.
When I get into the catalog (MSC) I find taper ground taps, bottoming ground taps, and plug ground taps.

Which do I want?

I will be tapping plastics, MDF, and hard wood to make various chucks and other accessories. More immediately, vacuum chucks.
