Threads are cut most successfully in fine-grained woods (e.g. such as: beech, cherry and pear). Coarser grain timbers, such as pine and oak are unsuitable except for large diameter threads. For best results, soak the wood to be threaded in oil (e.g. linseed, olive or vegetable oil) and wrap it in ‘cling film’ overnight.

They are usually supplied with two matching wood taps: one starter tap and one bottom tap to produce the equivalent internal thread.
