    A tap on the bottom is fine if you don't include a little "squeeze for goodluck".

    That's when your sweetie walks by in a swim suit, and you can't resist the urge to touch the goods!

    It's also when you come off a cliff on skies or board, land into the powder below, touch with the bum and keep going down the slope.

    Don't you need a sprial flute to clear the chips on a bottom tap. Seems like the straight flutes on a standard tap would clog and break pretty easy doing it that way?

    No shame in grinding down taps . I met a guy who grinds broken HSS drill bits/end mill shanks into lathe bits.
    As far as spiral taps go, it's nice. But most bottoming taps I've seen are straight flute. They make the flutes deep enough to allow room for chips. Adequate coolant flow will help also. Forming taps is where it's at
