Don't waste your money
I unfortunately wrote down the wrong number and ended up with this cheap set! Waste of space, the handle is rubbish! Don't buy unless you tapping into cheese!!

Don't waste money on this
I bought this so that I could re-thread a well head cover. I should have done more research as unfortunately as soon as I started using it the handle (soft metal) started to round off as the Tap was not able to sit in the handle very well and slipped.
I am now going to reinvest into a better quality handle.

Moment of weakness
You know how it is when you are a bit hard up just after christmas? Well beware you could buy something like this!
The set is as described as far as it goes. I wanted to cut an M6 thread in some aluminum. Waste of time the taps supplied are bottom taps not second or taper the thread refused to get started on two tries. I then had to change design and use a self tap screw instead. The dies are not split dies either, the holders are just about OK for the price, box is probably the best bit!
Learn from my mistake if it looks too cheap save up and buy better.
