A very useful 28 piece metric coarse tap and die set, economically priced and just the sort of thing to have tucked away in a drawer ready for those odd threading jobs which crop up from time to time. The set consists of first and second taps and dies in 3, 3.5, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10 and 12mm, two tap wrenches, a die holder and a thread gauge.

Surprisingly good quality, excellent value.I must admit I hesitated when The offer email popped into my inbox; some years back I bought a cheap set of taps and dies and found the truth of the old adage out for myself, 'Buy cheap buy twice!' At £30 this would be fairly priced at £19 it's a bargain; the quality is fine the threads on the taps are ground as are those of the dies so they should give a good clean thread (ordered yesterday afternoon, arrived this morning and haven't had time to use them.)

Much better than the typical "cheapo" setsAfter borrowing a rubbish cheap from china set (poorly made from poor quality metal) and promising myself that I would never buy a cheap set - I bought one of these sets while they were on offer last time knowing that Axminster would take it back if I didn't think it was any good.

Well thought out setIf you are like me, and have wanted a tap and die set for years, but have never quite justified it, then this set is probably for you. I have generally managed to bodge, get by or do it another way, but the day has come, and cutting my own threads was the least of the evils.
