This will tap a faucet for a seat or you can sometimes put a little bigger seat into a valve where someone’s screwed the threads up.
I’ve used it 4 times in 35 years. 😐

You can get these on eBay right now for 20 bucks and shipping.,

Not that anyone wants one. The last time I used it was on Christmas Eve about 4 yrs ago. Guy had a house full of people visiting and his tub valve was leaking on the cold side pretty bad.

All tiled in with that old nice vintage tile from the 50’s.

I couldn’t get the seat out and didn’t want to chance ruining the valve by continuing to try.

So I tapped the seat that was in there to accept a smaller flat seat. Then screwed the new seat into the old. It worked and it’s still working a few yrs later.

The advertising this man gives me because of this repair is amazing. He tells everyone the story if plumbing comes into the conversation.
