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.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value tap and die set Bought this set to do a repair job on my roller shutter garage door. The different types of tap wrenches included with the set worked perfect for my job as one side was tight up against the wall so was able to use the chuck type wrench and slide the bar across to miss the wall. Worked perfect and I now have a set of tap and dies for future use. Ok, not the best all singing and dancing quality that an engineering firm would want and need for heavy use but for a home set to be used occasionally they are an absolute bargain.

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.

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 ?
Asked by: transwest

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
