Operating tools – precise fit and solid

Extensions and tool holders for manual operation make the use of taps and dies possible. The adjustable holding tools are made of zinc die-cast or steel. They apply enough torque to the taps and dies so that you can cut your threads by hand.

Every tap manufactured according to DIN has a square at the end of the shank. To ensure that the tap and its square end fit together, the DIN 10 standard defines the dimensions for the outer square of the tap. Round Dies, on the other hand, have grooves or holes on the lateral surface. The dimensions for the die diameters, heights and the mounting holes/grooves are defined in DIN EN 22568 (formerly DIN 223 B). This ensures that the corresponding dies fit into the respective die holders.

BAER tool holders are stable and durable. Convince yourself.

Tool ratchet for taps

We offer you the holding tool with ratchet in proven BAER quality. Choose - depending on the application - the short or long version for taps with square shank. To clamp the tap, the chuck can be easily turned open and closed. With the lever, you can set the chuck to clockwise and counterclockwise rotation. The ratchet function of the tool ratchet is particularly practical when you need to cut the thread in tight situations.

Adjustable steel tap wrenches

In contrast to zinc die cast, the all-steel wrench is suitable for higher torques, such as those encountered with larger tap diameters. The holding tool in steel has the necessary stability for this. The cast steel is significantly more stable than the zinc die cast version and the quality of workmanship promises you a long tool life.

Die stocks made of steel

BAER die holders made of cast steel are manufactured according to DIN. Intensive quality tests ensure the best quality of the material and the tool - and thus perfect results and long tool life time. Choose your die holder according to the outer diameter and height of your die.

Tap extensions

With BAER tap extensions according to DIN 10 you can also reach deep-lying internal threads. The extensions are clamped into the tap wrench and the tap is inserted into the extension. You can use this extension not only to extend hand taps but also other tools with square shanks, such as screw extractors. Since the BAER tap extensions are made of solid steel, they can also transmit high torques effortlessly.

Adjustable zinc die cast tap wrenches 

The adjustable tap wrench is a holding tool for cutting internal threads by hand. The quality of a tap wrench lies in the material as well as in the clamping jaws, the holding handles and the geometry. The long levers on the right and left help to cut plumb into the hole and easily apply the required torque. The compact and robust design in die-cast zinc ensures a very good price-performance ratio. Another advantage is the easy handling and the short changeover times.

Die stocks made of zinc die cast

You need a die holder for holding round dies. BAER die stocks are manufactured according to DIN and are equipped with four, or five fastening screws for larger diameters. The screws have a tip that centers in the pilot holes of the dies. The die holder is made of zinc die casting and is resilient and wear resistant. Benefit from an excellent price-performance ratio.

Die guides

The challenge when cutting an external thread is to place the round die plumb against the bolt. The die guide is inserted into the die holder before inserting the die. This allows the bolt to be guided through the hole and the thread behind it to be cut by the die. With the BAER die guide you ensure a straight running cutting direction and the thread flanks are cut exactly. This way you get a perfect, external thread. BAER die guides are made entirely of steel in turned quality. They stand out strongly from the zinc die-cast quality of the competitors. Additional holes in the die guides ensure that the chip can drain off well.
