3D model description

Small handle for a tap with square shaft. I do a lot of prints with threads, and some of the time it is nescessary to recut the threads when the print is finished, this does not take much effort, and can nearly be done by just holding the tap with the fingers, but not quite. So enter the Tap Handle, a small replacement for a large and clumsy Tap Iron.
These handles are created for 2.5 to 6.5mm square shaft, in order to make one for e.g. a 2.8mm shaft, either go for 3mm and accept it being slightly loose, or adjust the scale in your slicer.
To be printed with hole facing upwards. I recommend fine settings for slicer, but if you are in a hurry, it doesn't matter much. I like to print these a bit hotter than usual in PLA (again any filament should do, adjust settings accordingly) in order to improve strength, but do have in mind, these are not meant for cutting threads in steel.
