Rated 2 out of 5Â by Brother52 Poor construction, but cheap
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

Rated 4 out of 5Â by joedoe Never had a kit like this b4!
I needed to fix a Cisa lock where one of the screw heads had sheared off. I bought this kit which has lots of pieces, some of which I may never use. I managed to do the job very quickly using a slightly bigger screw. Great price and will be useful for a very long time!

Absolute garbage, threads were poorly cut on the tool, hoped it would work better than expected, it didn't, price is about right for the quality. Returned it within a couple of hours, got a replacement of same kind in shop, attendant showed me inside the case and the tools were as bad as the first so had to upgrade to better kit. Maybe for a hobbyist or DIYer. Knew it wouldn't be brill at the price it's for but needed it quick to help me out as mine was at home, expected it to be at least half decent, it was not.
