Tip of the Month
March 2015
Chasers manufactured by Quality Chaser Company fall into two distinct categories.

MILLED FORM chasers are the most common and are identified by a straight relief or die angle. The die angle will vary depending on diameter and pitch. As you can see in the diagram, the die angle is required for clearance of the work piece diameter and to facilitate freer cutting action at the cutting face. When regrinding milled form chasers, material is removed from the chamfer in order to hold the centerline position of the cutting action.
TAPPED FORM chasers are manufactured on a concaved surface and have a distinctive concave profile. In contrast to the straight die angle on the milled form chaser, the tapped form chaser has "circumferential clearance" that serves the same purpose. The tapped form chaser has one major advantage over its milled form counterpart, however. The cutting face of tapped form chasers can be reground without regard to center height, thereby allowing for more regrinds and longer tool life.
Contact our customer service department with your specific requirements, to determine which chaser form will best enhance your threading performance.
