Carbon Steel Tap & Die Set 51 Piece Set
Not as expected
Product is well packaged and looks good unfortunately I didn't find the selection were up to what I was looking for.
The 'Taps' struggled to cope with starting a thread and the included Wrench did not connect with the thread in the handle as s such cannot be used - that was the point that I gave up - disappointed.

Tap and Die set
I bought this set thinking it was good quality, ahh NO it aint, I wanted to tap 6 holes in the chassis of my van so I could re fit a towbar, half way through the 1st hole the tap wrench started to slip, I did oil the tap and I worked the tap back and forward so not to put the tap under too much stress, I would not recommend to anyone, in order to get the job done I had to use a 7mm spanner attached to the tap, not ideal because of leaverage issues, and it hurt my hand trying to get the job done.

Like others, I found this next to useless. I bought it for one particular job, as having had a tool box with lots of various taps, had broken the one I needed.
The tap in the set had been cut very poorly and burs on it prevented it from cutting properly - no lead or second taps made it almost impossible to start, I when I did cut it, result was poor and loose.
The screw extractors did come in handy but not worth the cost just for those.

tap and die set
Cheap but very poor quality, tap holder was useless and I finished up having to use a spanner.
Keep it in the work shop for small jobs but do not think you will use the set every day as it will not last.
