Gack! There is nothing worse than breaking off a tap in a hole.

First drill some holes

Enlarge the holes

And the wiring

That’s one of the limit switches for the y axis, by the way. One way to spend a couple hours!

“But where is the actual tap? It must blend in real well…”

It broke off flush with the surface. The worst part was that I wasn’t even tapping at the time, I had started the tap and then needed to slide the handle out a bit to clear something that was in the way. I accidentally twisted the tap handle sideways and SNAP!
