    Default Torque limiter for tapping

    I am looking for a torque limiter to place in the tailstock and hold a chuck that in turn holds a regular tap.
    I sometimes use an electrical handheld drill for tapping and the adjustable torque is great. I want that feature in a tailstock setting.
    Where can I buy one so I do not have to make it?

    You don't give any specs on the tailstock so it's a bit hard to offer holder advice. Maybe this? https://www.amazon.com/MT3-ER32-Mill.../dp/B00RN38KPO

    for the mill https://www.amazon.com/Thread-Collet...79&s=hi&sr=1-3

    Sorry Jim,
    I am looking for something like the front end of an electric drill with an easily adjustable torque setting. This is not for production work, just hobby stuff.
    What I envision is a 10mm=3/8" chuck to hold taps and the other end is a 10mm=3/8" rod that would fit the lathe or mill or drillpress chuck.
    I have been thinking of cannibalize an old electric drill. I do power tapping now but I have to be very careful to stop in time.

    You may have to cannibalize an electric drill. I've not seen anything like that.
