Affordance of the Day

The photo below shows a set of 2-56 UNC taps from Widia, one of which I had occasion to use tonight. The tap did its job just fine, but I was more interested (and surprised) by the packaging.

If you’ll notice in the photo below, there are three fingers on the right side of each of the three compartments to aid in the egress of the tap.

Nice job Widia!
