Worked Well enough
The first one I used cracked and broke as I was trying to screw it in. Also had a tough time getting it into the predrilled hole straight without cracking the wood. _x000D__x000D_The second one I used a drill to get it in straight and quick without cracking.

Did the job
Ordered several of these and 2-3 of them had damaged threads, they filed right out though. Worked great on both wood and antler tap handles. I would recommend giving yourself some room to play with on the diameter of the base of your handle if you are turning your own (1/4") or like Lonnie said the handles will split.

Great cheap solution for custom handles
My neighbor has a small lathe and he made me two handles, one was out of some cherry and one was out of walnut. He used wax on the threads when tapping the handle to lubricate the wood and it worked out well.

Great deal
Can't beat the price and if you want custom handles than this is a must.

Good product with 2 small issues for installation.
I had two small issues with the inserts. First the lead threads needed to be filed to remove some burrs left over from machining. Secondly in hard oak I could not get the insert started with the recommended 1/2 inch hole and so I had to drill a 9/16 inch one to get them to thread into the handle.

needs 9/16" hole
I got these and they are working great, but I had to drill a 9/16" hole instead of the 1/2" hole they recommend. When I tried to get them in the 1/2" hole, the tap handle was cracking, but a 9/16" hole worked perfectly. That larger hole also allows you to push (with some pressure) the insert partially into your hole to get it going straight easier.

what tool is used to install these threaded brass inserts
J O on Mar 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You'll need to drill a 1/2" diameter hole 5/8" deep into the bottom of your tap first. Then insert the smooth end into the hole and tighten the notched end with a wide flat-head screwdriver. Next, screw the tap handle into your tap and pour yourself a pint of your latest brew. Repeat the last step as necessary.
