Nitride: A surface hardening treatment that penetrates the surface
of the tap (interstitial penetration of nitrogen) to provide a hard wear surface.
Light nitride is used to general applications.
Heavy nitride is used for wear application such as for cast iron.
When ordering specify a "N" following the E.D.P. Number - Example 20196N.
Hansonize: A nitride surface followed by a black oxide treatment provides the benefits of
wear while regaining some of the ductility by tempering the nitride. Lubricity is also
improved by the black oxide coating.
When ordering specify a "T" following the E.D.P Number - Example 20196T.
Black Oxide: A black oxide coating of non-measurable thickness and is used to increase
surface capillarity where better lubricant retaining properties are required on the tap
When ordering specify an "S" following the E.D.P. Number - Example 20196S.
Chrome: A thin wear coating provides wear and lubricity. It s not recommended for most
applications but may be useful where adequate lubrication of the tap is impossible to
When ordering specify an "E" following the E.D.P. Number - Example 20196E.
Hansonlube: A high hardness grey surface which resists wear and adds greatly to lubricity.
Used to reduce tendency of the material tapped to load and weld on the tap surface.
When ordering specify an "P" following the E.D.P. Number - Example 20196P.
Titanium Nitride: A thin physical vapor deposition coating which provides a wear coating
with good lubricity. Since the cost of this treatment is higher than other surface
treatments it should not be used unless at least twice the wear life of many of the other
treatments can be obtained.
When ordering specify an "C" following the E.D.P. Number - Example 20196C.
Socket Screws, Clamp-Tite Collars
The Holo-Krome Company has been a leader in the Socket Screw
industry for over 50 years. In 1930, we developed and later patented the first practical
cold heading process for mass producing high tensile alloy steel socket screws. Today,
virtually all products of that nature are manufactured by one or more of the methods
developed by Holo-Krome. In the early 50's we developed our Thermo Forged® process for
which we were awarded worldwide patents. In this process the material is prewarmed by
induction heating to improve its plasticity for forming. With only slight changes in shape
or dimensions, we are able to head many parts that previously took a screw machine to
produce - and are doing it at a significant savings.

Drill Chucks, Accessories, Industrial Keyless
Precision design combines keyless operation with the ultimate in
drill chuck accuracy.
Jacobs® Industrial Keyless Chucks are high precision devices specifically designed for
high accuracy applications on either conventional or CNC equipment. Tightened and released
by hand, they permit more rapid tooling changes to increase machining productivity. A
self-tightening feature produces significantly higher gripping force to resist tool shank
slippage. Precision manufactured and tested to the most exacting quality standards,
Jacobs® Industrial Keyless Chucks can be counted on for extremely high reliability and
durability under the most demanding machining conditions.
Precision tested and certified to .0016" T.I.R. or better.
Self-tightening feature automatically increases gripping force proportional to increased
torque to prevent tool shank slippage.
All components exposed to wear are completelyhardened to maintain accuracy and extend
Jacobs® taper mount permits use on a wide range of high accuracy drill presses, jip
borers, milling machines and production drilling equipment.

Improved cutting tool performance with much higher cutting speeds & feeds - far
shorter machining cycle costs.
Dramatic tool wear reduction results in much longer production runs with fewer tool
changes & set-up scrap.
Optional modifications of stocked standard tools eliminates need for costly special tools.
Optional modifications reduces lead time for special tooling needs.
The unbreakable blade Sandvik introduced the bi-metal hacksaw blade
in 1969. By a new technique it then became possible to combine and utilise the best
characteristics of the tough spring steel and the wear-resistant high-speed steel. The two
materials are welded together under high vacuum, the teeth are then milled out of the
wear-resistant high-speed steel to produce a perfect match with the tough and very
flexible spring steel of the back.
Sandflex offers optimum cutting characteristics, long life and a fast cutting operation.
Sandflex, the virtually unbreakable hacksaw blade, therefore becomes the safe choice where
economy, safety and environmental considerations are concerned.
We apply the Sandflex technique to bandsaw blades, power and hand hacksaw blades, holesaws
and reciprocating sawblades.

Quality Excellence Since 1832
Quality products and the Simonds brand have been synonymous ever since Abel Simonds began
business in 1832. Since then, the company that bears his name carries forth the tradition
of quality, design, and innovation at a fair price. A good value. The Simonds "Red
Tang" trademark has unquestionably become one of the most respected symbols of
quality and reliability in the marketplace today. Every Simonds file is precision-cut for
uniform tooth height and sharpness. Then, scientifically heat treated for optimum hardness
before being individually inspected for uniformity and maximum cutting ability. Simonds is
as particular about quality today as Abel Simonds was when it all began.
American Pattern Files
Machinist Files - generally double-cut, Machinist Files are Excellent for hogging (rapid
stock removal) on all types of materials.
Saw Files - generally single-cut, Saw Files are great for smoother finishes and best
suited for sharpening saws or dressing edged tools.
Standard American Pattern Cuts
There are three cuts to choose from on most American Pattern Files:
Bastard Cut - A coarse cut (fewest teeth per inch) for rapid stock removal
Second Cut - A medium cut for moderate stock removal
Smooth Cut - A fine cut (most teeth per inch) for smooth finishes and limited stock
Swiss Pattern Files
Swiss pattern files are used by precision craftsmen for finishing delicate & intricate
parts. Narrow in both width and thickness, the teeth extend all the way to the edge of the
file. These files offer the finest cuts available. The tapered files have fine points for
delicate detail work.
Standard Swiss Pattern Cuts
Cuts range from no. 00 (the coarsest) to no. 6 (the finest).
