I managed to break an 8mm tap while rethreading one of my seat threads. Anyone in the Atlanta GA area have a 4 flute, 5/16 or 8mm tap extractor that I could borrow to try to get it out? I'd be willing to drive an hour or so, and provide the drinks/food and good company.

I may need it when I do mine.

5/16 (8mm), not 5/8. But, yes, figure I'll buy one if needed. You're welcome to use it.

And, with the way things have been going recently, I'm guessing before its all over I'm gonna need a tap extractor-extractor.

I have been in the "machinery" brance for 40 years , and didnt now there was such a tool. Thank you for learning me this , - i can see on the link how it is supposed to work .
Normally i weld a screw or a bolt to the tap , and sometimes i have luck , - but often , when you have broken the tap , it can be realy "sitting".
You can also drive it out with a hammer , (when it is not a bottom hole ), and after this repair the thread with a helicoil.
One more thing ,(maybe not a good solution on the Wing): you can heat it WERY red several times , and then you (maybe), can drill it out , because it is not hardened anymore .

The winner is the man with most tools !
