### Furthermore, how do you determine the size of the tap drill?

When working with Metric threads, the tapping drill may be estimated by subtracting the pitch from the diameter of the thread as a general rule of thumb. For example, the tapping drill for an M5x0.75 thread is 5-0.75mm = 4.25mm in diameter. The tapping drill size for imperial (inch) threads is computed in the same manner as for metric threads: diameter minus pitch.

### What is the drill size for the m8 tap, as well?

To lubricate the tap, apply cutting oil to the threads.
