The staybolt tap has two separate threaded areas. The first is for cutting threads and the second  is  for  guiding  the  tap  into  another  piece  of  metal for threading by the cutting threads. The spindle-type staybolt has an adjustable spindle which changes the distance between the cutting threads and the guide threads. DIES MUD  HAND  TAPS  (WASHOUT  TAP) The mud or washout tap has six flutes, tapers 1-1/4 inch per foot, and has 12 threads per inch. It is used for cutting  American  National  or  V-form  threadsin  mud  plug drain holes.

The rethreading die is hexagonal in shape and may be turned with a socket,  box,  open-end,  or  any  other  wrench  that  will  fit. They are available in American Coarse and Fine Threads. Rethreading dies are available in a variety of sizes and are usually assembled in sets with a case.
