Got the pilot and tap size holes drilled. Used the drill press, as it is much faster that the mill. Got 4 of 40 holes tapped to 3/8-16 by hand. 3 dozen left. Had a Tap Matic I got at an auction about 7 years ago, but gave it to Ron. I was sure I would never use it. Back then I had no intention of getting a mill.

Couple hours hand tapping and I will be all done. Next have to buy a 3/8-16 set of hold downs and T nuts. Could make them but not sure I want to spend the time.

Pics when done tapping.
