      The majority of them are "Engineers Taps" for tapping threads into a hole drilled into metal that you screw machine screws or bolts into.

      I agree..I spent a few years building assembly lines for the wood, metal and plastic industries. And some years as a final assembly mechanic building commercial jets.

      Taps that are flat are called bottom taps. They are made for tapping holes that don't go all the way through the material your working with.

      Grandpa was like me, he had an assortment of brands. Those are taps for cutting thread in metal as stated above. Very handy when needed, especially in a house with old plumbing.

      Thank you so much. I don't understand why he has buckets full of anvils and awls and etc. So many.

      Agreeing with the others, these are mostly bottom taps. Nice ones too, by the names you mention! As to "why so many" kitchenrebeccal1, all I can offer is that (to a 'tool guy') such things are kind of like a popular brand of potato chips -- "you can never have just one"...??? <LOL>

      I have to agree with AnythingObscure, I have oodles and oodles of tools I seldom use and duplicates of many. I tend to hoard them just in case I happen to need them.
