Rated 5 out of 5 by from tap and die set pleasantly surprised with this kit some good feature particularly the pitch gauge and centre punch and the screw extractors are a nice touch as well. for the price of a couple of dies you have this kit cant go wrong. only gave a 4 on performance and reliability as I've only used it a few times. pleased so far

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tapping Steel I will be honest here - these taps are no good for most metal applications. It didn't even tap one hole using specialist tapping fluid.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid I use taps and dies a lot, needed a few of the bigger sizes for a couple of jobs I've got on, decided to try this kit as it was so cheap.... I had not realised they weren't even split dies, I'd just read the description, specifically the bit that says they are for cutting a thread. No. They are not. Samwise Gamgee had more hope of Sméagol being trustworthy than you have hope of cutting a thread with these. They are likely suitable for cleaning a thread, but definitely not cutting. Thankfully Screwfix refunded me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great DIY Set I bought this set to enlarge the threads in the end of my Triumph Speed Triple handlebars as the standard threads were too small to accommodate some new endbar mirrors I had bought. I had the correct nut and bolt with the mirror as they came with them, just a case of selecting the correct tap by winding the nut over it, I then used one of the included HSS drill bits to enlarge the existing hole and then cut the new thread, used some washing up liquid to keep the cutting process lubed, worked an absolute treat. The last time I had a go at cutting threads was in metalwork at school about 35 years ago, so I'm rather pleased with myself !! Great set for the DIYer , not sure how it would stand up for professional use, I guess you would probably opt for a more expensive set but for me, for home use perfectly adequate and good value.

Thread type

I just bought a metric & an imperial set of T&D's, but neither are any good for most of the bolts that I've tried them on. I think its down to thread type - I think these are FS ?! What thread type are these ?

Are these taps suitable for tapping wood as need to tap some 10mm holes

Asked by: timsy
Hello timsy, These tap & dies are designed for metal, so they are unlikely to make a clean cut in wood. Thanks for using Q&A
