I had a fluted tap break off in a bolt hole. This tool is made specifically for this problem, but the arms were not strong enough to get the tap broken free. I ending up chiseling the tap out. Save your money and just start chipping away at it.
If the tap you are removing is not jammed in the threads too hard, and maybe just cleaning out an existing thread, this device might work. But the fingers are not very strong and so if the tap was being used to make a new thread and is really jammed in, this device won't help as you can't put too much force on it. If the tap is broken but will move in the threads, this tool can certainly be used to spin it out.
