Rated 4 out of 5 by from Metric Tap and Die Set I do car restoration in my spare time, and doing this from time to time bolts break off. I purchased this to recut some threads where a bolt had sheared off. They work very well in steel but I have managed to strip an M6 tap trying to retap some threads in stainless steel. I guess the stainless steel was just too hard for them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Garbage Broke half of the kit already. Brittle and hopeless.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible - do not buy 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

Rated 2 out of 5 by from 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.

Answer: 
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
