Thanks for the replies, I was looking at them for 1/8” material. I get to drill and tap batches of 60 so I was thinking it would save time but maybe not.

They probably would be great for that. Mostly what they’re designed for I think. Even better if you have a tapping head that automatically reverses when pulled up.

Depending on the size they could work great for that. I have used them in 1/8" for 10/32, 12/24 & 1/4x20 using a Tapmatic and it takes longer to position than to drill and tap.
