We offer screw-in rivets and taps in two different sizes. This listing is for our smaller 1-72 size screw-in rivet/tap system. This size works best for Hot Wheels and Matchbox produced before 1978. Perfect for restoration projects!
If you want to work with our smaller 2-56 size which is perfect for current peg cars, check out our Customization section of our store for those screws and taps.
A high-quality 3-fluted 1-72 carbon hand tap. The small tap creates threads in a 1/16″ pilot hole. This preps the car to receive a 1-72 size screw-in replacement rivet.
When running the tap into the pilot hole, always use oil on the thread of the tap for fluid threading action. When the tap stops, do not twist any further. It has bottomed out. You’re done threading the hole!
