Starrett 93A tap wrench

As with most Starrett products, this one is absolutely first rate.

I bought this to replace a 50-year-old Millers Falls tap wrench of the same size. The Millers Falls wrench jaws were an integral part of the wrench body and was designed to bend inward to hold a tap's base when the knurled knob was tightened. Eventually, that bending caused one of the jaw sections to snap off.

This Starrett tool is a much better design, as the two jaw halves that hold the tap are separate forgings, with a spring holding them apart. It securely holds the very smallest taps -- from 1/16" to 3/16" square shank. The handle rod, needed to provide turning leverage, is pushed into the wrench against a small spring -- which keeps it from moving much, unless you want it to. It's easy and fast to slide the rod out of the way when necessary - much faster than rods that are held in place with a set screw.

The price of this wrench is much higher than other tap wrenches, but if you want the very best, this is the one to get. The design and manufacture of this Made in the USA tool is outstanding. Highly recommended.

The handle is held in place by a C shaped clip inside the hole in the wrench. I found that giving the handle a little twist helps push the handle through the clip. Once the handle is in the clip it slides without much effort, but it won't fall out. In fact you can hold the wrench by the handle and shake it and the wrench won't fall off, at least while it's still new. Only time will tell if the clip loosens with use. The wrench does have a hole in the top for using a spring tap guide.

The one thing that did bother me was the fractional tap size description for the 93A and 93B. When's the last time you went to the tap drawer and pulled out a 3/16" or a 7/32"??? They should list the machine screw sizes. I bought the 93A, 93B, and 93C just to make sure I had the right size when I needed it. All 3 seem to be the same high quality so I can combine the reviews into 1 and use it for all 3.

I sorted out the tap sizes so here they are. The 93A will hold machine screw taps from #0 to #8. When I tried a #10 it went in, but felt like it wasn't meant to. The 93B will hold a #10 to 7/16. The 93C, like it says, does 1/4 to 1/2.

I saw a previous review where the user had some trouble tightening the chuck. The 93 series tap wrenches have V shaped jaws to hold the square end of the tap to prevent the tap from twisting in the jaws. It only needs to be tight enough so the tap doesn't slide out. The jaws fit inside a slot cut in the solid body of the wrench and the chuck threads on the solid body. This design means the torque applied to the tap can't cause the chuck to loosen, even if it is already loose enough for the tap to fall out. Some other tap wrenches are designed to grip the round shank of the tap so you do need to put a death grip on those.

Starrett is one of my all time favorite tool companies. Their products are solidly and precisely made & are absolute classics. These tap handles for example are just beautiful and functional. Perhaps a little more expensive than some but in my view are totally worth it.

This works much better than the typical cheap alternative. It actually holds the tap by the square facets machined into the end of it without slipping, and without needing to be tightened too much, either. Moderate hand-tightening is all it takes.
If anything, it holds so well that you need to be careful with smaller taps not to snap the tap. But that is where skill and finesse take over.

The quality of this tap wrench is as good as it gets. I purchased all three 93A, 93B, and 93C sizes to use with my Chicago Latrobe HT36 tap and drill bit set and they far exceeded my expectations. The quality and workmanship of these tools are outstanding. I have been using them on a daily bases for almost a year now and they still have a new tool feel. Don't waste your money on a cheaper set. They are well worth the extra cost if you actually want to be able to use your tools. These are definitely NOT “Made in China”

I've gone through several small tap handles recently. I have tried the Irwin type available at most hardware stores with the four prongs that hold the tap. They are really not very good. Then I bought a General Tools tap handle, and it was a much better design, but poorly executed. I gave up on that one too.

This Starrett tap handle is exactly what I was looking for. It is small and light, so it is not fatiguing to use to tap many holes consecutively. The fit and finish is orders of magnitude better than any of the other tap handles I've used; no tool marks are visible at all on this piece. It holds taps very firmly, with minimal effort to tighten the jaws. Well worth the price.

Superbly made, typical of all Starrett tools. I was amazed how smoothly the nut turned on the threads. I have a larger, cheaper tap wrench and the fit and finish on it cannot compare with the Starrett.

Product is "as advertised" and a very high quality tool. I didn't realize this is the "micro" size that it is (It wouldn't grab the 1/4-20 tap that I first tried). Unless you're doing work on model RC cars or something, it is too small for most machine work.
