Broke half of the kit already. Brittle and hopeless.

Had doubts before purchase with the mixed reviews however thought I'd give it a go - don't bother its an absolute waste of time, managed to drill two holes in 6mm aluminium before 2.5mm drill blunted, broke first M3 tap on first hole, the second managed to do a whole and half before the handle would not grip the tap as it had rounded, had to get tap out with mole grips and that snapped in the process so had to be drilled out. Taking it back as not fit for purpose

i got these as I rarely need to use taps and dies, but they seemed useful to have about the place. I picked this set as it had the most pieces of the ones I looked at, but this includes drills etc. which I didn't realise. would recommend getting a similarly priced set that just has taps and dies in it. the wrenches look flimsy but may hold up ok under light usage.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Verified Reviewer Taps and dies
As yet not used in anger. But a quick check against suitable sized bolts suggests the dies are going to be tight. As they are not split there is no way to adjust this - the thread you get is it.
Some odd pitches in the set as well - at least in the 3mm to 8mm range. But the dies and taps match so provided you tap the hole and make the thread your OK but you may find issues with making a thread to fit a standard bolt. The thread gauge in my set hasn't had about half the teeth cut in it so they are smooth - not going to use it anyway.
Useful addition of easy out broken bolt removers and the right drills for the taps
