Re: Stripped thread- Now what?
If you are using a tapered tap you should run it through to the fully cut threads. The taper allows you to get it started and as the taper increases, you get into deeper threads. Since you are just chasing threads that have already been cut, you should not have a problem. Just keep the tap straight and aligned and don't cross thread it.
