For those who have no experience with machining and hole threading, this is a good reference that describes the difference between a taper, plug and bottoming tap. Threads, Taps, and Tapping - 6: Taper, Plug, Bottoming, and Pipe Taps

It also describes the difference between a taper tap and a tapered pipe thread tap. A common confusing point for the uninitiated.
