    I would not use a tap, requires too much power. I use thread mills. One part I build has a 1-8 threaded hole, 2 inches deep, 6061 aluminum. I do it in one pass with a 2HP spindle.

    Like this one, but with a 1/2 shank https://www.amazon.com/Micro-100-TM-...ustrial&sr=1-2

    Or a multi-cutter type

    I thought you might be the same person

    I have used a 1/2 air impact wrench for tapping 1-8, but not recommended for production.

    The good news is that the first tool that I linked to is not $600. It just takes a little longer to thread the hole with the single point.
