"Klutch Tungsten Tap & Die Set - 45-Pc., SAE"
Tap & Die set
I have not used this product yet. It looks like a good set to some other sets I have seen or used.

I saw the caution which was a couple of years old, so thought I would give the set a try, but the 7/8 NF 14 Die broke in half upon first use, which was not even cutting threads but only chasing threads.
Also, no instructions of any kind came with my set.
I've got three other tap & die sets along with some misc. others, but wanted the larger sizes, this set offered.

Do NOT buy this product
In a couple days after receiving I broke a die with first use on low carbon steel none the less (under 1020). Granted it was a 3/4-10 die... I expect the smaller dies and taps to be better? The material is not sufficient for making the large cuts of bigger dies. I suggest a different product if you are in the market.

Great item, served me well!
Solid product, well made, durable, includes pretty good instructions for using with different metals, testing hardness, which lubrication to choose, etc., strong carry case.
First use was to fixed my garbage can by threading 5/16th x 24 onto the wheels' steel rod and adding a nut when the cap fell off of one side and disappeared. Worked great!

I think this tap and die set has the most bang for the dollar by far. I would compare this set, to a fellow mechanics Mac set but 1/6 of the price we both work on same equipment daily my Northern Tool 45 pc set still works great and is just as durable as his . I would reccomend this kit to all.The range of sizes are great for this kit (and my use).
If and when something happens to this kit I would replace It with a new one!
