    As a machinist I have 4 sizes of tap wrenches at home and work. The T handle tap wrenches are as handy as the one posted.

    I quite like this idea, nice job. When tapping holes on flat items I always start the tap in the drill press by spinning the drill press chuck by hand. I do a few turns of the chuck and then use my T handle tool.
