I have been asked whether PlanetSafe AIM will work with tapping titanium. Everyone tells me it is really tough to work with and often times the tap will break even when using the expensive metal cutting fluids that state they are specifically for tapping titanium. Dale Poling, EliteIron.com, gave AIM a go with tapping a 10/32 hole in titanium. As he described it he was “deeply shocked”. He said it had less friction problems than he has had with some specialized titanium tapping products. Dale has a very well equipped machine shop that includes CNC lathes and mills as well as the latest metal working equipment.
