Yes. looks similar. I was really surpised at running in a tap in steel at 1200 rpm!!!!!

Of course, you may be slipping so that the actual relative speed is lower, but tapping a
hole in steel in 1 second was just amazing to this ignorant beginner.

Chucked in a 5/8" Albrecht chuck on the tailstock of my lathe.

I have 3 or 4 lathe die holders. The ends typically are bored to different diameters and depths to hold two different sizes of button dies.
