A metal tap, which is a drill for drilling holes into metal is used when drilling holes into solid materials. The drill bit is inserted into the material and turned to move the metal at the edges and corners. A tap is used on the other side of the drill bit for shoving the material as it moves through the holes. The basic concept of how the metal tapering machine works is to take a metal core drill, which is usually solid metal, and drill at different angles and directions to create different shapes. A metal taper rod is attached to the top of the drill bit and helps guide the drill bit as it goes through the material.

A drill press can be used to drill holes in metal but because of the weight of the metal the drill may not be able to reach all the way to the edges. This would cause a metal flake to be left behind which causes a metal tear. To resolve this problem, a metal tapering machine is used to complete the task of drilling holes into metal by using a metal taper rod which helps guide the metal as it goes through the holes.
