    Default Ritmar Corporation has closed... Suggested replacements?

    Our company uses a lot of Ritmar tap & drill extensions,
    but the company has gone out of business and we need to find a quality replacement.
    Here's a link to a copy of part of their catalog, to give you an idea of what we use.
    Page 1 of Ritmar of the catalog Drill & Tap Extensions

    If anyone knows of any good quality tap and drill extensions, please let me know!

    Thanks

    I use the press fit tap extensions from Maritool. They work great on my stuff. Emuge sell extensions.

    They are pretty easy to make if you need to.

    We need extensions that hold all different sizes of drills, too. Even more so than tap extensions.
    (As shown on page 8 of that catalog)
    Any suggestions for that?
    We found Whitney makes extensions that are VERY similar to Ritmars, but not quite interchangeable.
    We're worried they'll get mixed up because they're identical to look at.
