The product works very well.....but it gave me contact dermatitis from a short secondary contact interaction. One of the chemical compounds (likely an amine) in this is high reactive and may cause skin inflammation that presents like hives. I am testing the products components for common fat soluble volatile compounds with NMR and GC Mass spec, not to mention bacterial contaminants from the alpha and beta bacterial families. It seems likely that the triethanol amine and also the trade secret amine complex is a candidate for the reactivity on skin. I personally think the manufacturer needs a stronger warning label on the product and/or more comprehensive saftey listings for proper handling,

If you use this product I suggest you do NOT use latex glove as it can be porous and may not provide protection. Use nitrile based gloves when using this product. If you have any issue with this product , please apply cortisone to the localized skin affected areas and use appropriate amounts of antihistamine to reduce redness and swelling.

As a machinist, (now retired), for 23+ years, I can say that this is one of the most popular cutting oils in the trade and has been for at least 44 years and probably a lot longer than that, (I started as a machinist apprentice when I was 14 yrs. old).

It’s a very high quality cutting oil and in machine shops, it''s primarily used as a cutting oil for Tap and Die work as well as single point threading. However, it can work as a good cutting oil to do small metal cutting jobs in a DIY home operation.

For instance, I bought it to use on a 1" hole saw as I cut through 6061 T6 aluminum and 1018 mild steel. The ''big plus'' about Tap Magic is that it produces very little smoke as your tool and work surface are getting hot.

In fact, it produces a lot less smoke than the ''heavy'', dark, machining oil that was common in machine shops back in the 1970''s. There were several ''heavy'' oils typically used back then even though water-soluble oils were getting a good start.

Tap Magic is expensive in small quantities but you only need a few drops as you cut. The TM oil contains special ingredients that, among other things, keep the tool and work surface cool. This is incredibly important when cutting most steels.

If you’re cutting a mild steel like 4140, (non-heat-treated state), you can quickly work-harden the surface of the material to a state beyond the ability to be cut drilled, or machine in any way by any tool steel cutters at all! This is common if attention is not paid to your ‘feed and speed’, (surface footage rating), for the type of material you’re working with.

If the work surface and tool get hot enough, you can wind up with a burnt cutting area that can easily exceed 45RC, C-scale, (very hard and usually, a job for carbide tooling would be used on that hardness rating).

Tap Magic helps to keep that from happening but it still requires that you monitor your speed and the feed rate of your cut in such a way as to keep the cutting teeth of the tool under load and NOT allowing it to ‘rub’ which is the first step to a bad day.

This product was considered a must have in most machine shops up to the year I got out for good, (2000). I have no doubt that it’s still a popular oil for job shops all over the country, if not the world. With that kind of endorsement, it’s safe to say that this oil is a 5 star product, hands down.

Worth it, all day long. Not only lets you cut/drill faster - but your tool life will be dramatically increased. You can save a fortune on drill bits for the cost of a $10 can, not to mention loads of time. And this little can goes a long, long way. Get it and use it.

In case you are unfamiliar, using it simply means putting a few drops between your material and tool. If you are say, drilling steel on a work bench or press, just squeeze a few drops right on the surface of the metal where you want to make a hole. If you are drilling horizontally (or even straight up) it''s easier to apply the fluid directly to the drill bit.

If you see big chips flying (or even long strings of curly metal) you are doing it right. If you are only getting small flakes (or the sound of your drill switches to a high-pitched squeal instead of a satisfying metal chewing spin), stop and re-apply. Ideally you want to apply enough to avoid getting to that point, which you can learn from practice.

Besides cutting faster (and burning up fewer bits) this stuff also helps avoid ''snags'' when drilling in metal which can shatter a drill bit. Really annoying to have to extract a hardened bit from a hunk of steel. Pro tip: when drilling through thick steel (say, thicker than 1/4") it helps to ''woddle'' the hole a little bit to avoid snags and jams. That''s a technical term. Make small (very small) circles as you drill.

To summarize: worth every penny for drilling and cutting steel. Great for impatient metal workers.

I still haven’t figured out what the difference is between this product and the one that looks like it’s the same bottle but a different price and different part number, the bottle I’m reviewing says “Tap Magic EP-Xtra Forney 20857”.

Every application I had planned for it was into a vertical surface, not flat and horizontal, so after reading some reviews saying this stuff is thin like water had me concerned it wasn’t going to work for how I needed to use it. It’s certainly not thick like gear oil consistency like other tap fluids I’ve used, it’s not as thick as motor oil, but it is a little thicker than water. I put some on my drill tip and some on the vertical surface I intended to drill and most of it did run down and off, but some also did stick and it worked amazing.

I needed to drill several holes into a very hard frame on my one ton truck. The first hole I attempted was with just any old bit I had on hand, barely scratched the surface, 100 years of drilling and I still wouldn’t have gotten a hole. Second attempt was with the best bit my local hardware store had, I tried wax, motor oil, WD40, I did get a hole in it but it took a lot of effort, so much so that I gave up on my task after just one hole to see if I could find an even better bit on Amazon. What I found was this stuff and I remember seeing it years ago in tool and die shops I’d been in so I ordered it.

The word “Magic” in the name is more than just a marketing gimmick, it’s mind blowing what a difference just a little of this stuff made, night and day. If I was a drill bit manufacturer I’d include some of this stuff with every bit I sold, people would think it was my drill bits that were so amazing and would have no idea it was actually this Magic Tap fluid. I completed all my holes with little effort and just one bit.

Ever have a drill bit just spin and spin, taking forever to cut through strong material like steel? I was tired of that, I came across Tap Magic and decided to try it. The improvement was amazing - I had to drill 8 relatively large holes into a steel chassis rail. I drilled the first hole without Tap Magic, it took awhile but eventually I made it through. The next 7 holes took less than the same time to drill the first one, the only difference was putting a large drop of Tap Magic on the drill bit before drilling. The amount of effort required to drill was a fraction of what was needed without Tap Magic. I can''t believe I didn''t learn about this a long time ago! I also used a small amount on the metal taps that I followed with, and they cut perfect threads in no time at all. Really good stuff, pretty amazing.

I had heard that the formula was changed. This product appears to be regular old oil. The old chemical formula Tap Magic was really magic. It turned Stainless Steel into putty under a drill or tap. Too bad they had to alter the formula. I heard it was a dangerous chemical. Don''t know why.

Editted review 9/4/2020: I put the new Tap Magic to the test yesterday. It is a lot better than I thought. Did some repairs to a trailer. Had to do some drilling into vertical steel by hand. The new Tap Magic took the dread out of the job. Tap Magic really made a big difference in the job at hand. A drop of this stuff and instantly you could see the sprials twisting out of the drill hole. Haven''t used it on stainless yet but, it sure does a number on steel plate. I will buy this again!

After reading some Tap Magic reviews, I decided to order it. Today I needed to drill some holes in the base of my band saw, so I grabbed one of my bad bits and the can of Tap Magic. And just like that, the bit went right through the 1/4" thick steel! I''m very happy.
