    A great kit!Draper have always produced quality tools and this is no exception.I was surprised by the number of tools within the metal case.The first bonus is that each tap has a corresponding drill bit so that you do not undersize or oversize the hole to be tapped with your own collection of drill bits.A supplied centre punch can be used to mark the metal to be drilled and tapped to avoid skipping.The kit also includes a screwdriver to make adjustments to the die-tool holder as well as a set of screw extractors.A thread pitch guide completes the set which is carefully laid out in a sturdy vacuum formed tray.A single latch secures the lid to the case with a full length ‘piano’ style hinge to the rear and a folded edge to the lid to ensure nothing falls out by accident.The only missing item is a tin of cutting compound to make the tapping and threading easier.

    Nice tools – very very poor tool tray. Big disappointmentDraper tools in my experience are pretty good and robust. I have not used these taps or dies in the workshop but I have no doubt the actual tools will work as expected.I am however very disappointed with the plastic tray in which the tools are laid out. It is really very thin and very flimsy and I expect before tool long it will fall to pieces. When this happens the taps and dies will just become a big jumble inside the metal tin.So for me this is a shame that what looks like another good Draper product is (for me) let down greatly by very cheap and basic plastic tray. Why make it so very thin I do not know. I cannot believe a thicker plastic would add any serious cost to the product. Really big shame Draper.

    Good service from DraperThe set was as described and of good basic quality except for the 10.3mm drill which was ground off centre and so useless. Needed to use the smaller stuff so didn’t want to return the lot. Contacted Draper about it and after a couple of emails received a replacement 10.3 direct from them. Excellent service, thanks.

    Am very pleasedSurprisingly good quality. Are the parts strong? well I had no trouble (using tapping lubricant) tapping a piece of 1″ hardened steel scaffolding, though the drill was very slow, should have used cobalt. My only gripe is the next to useless die holder with it’s fiddly and unworkable guide blocks, so I use another die holder. All the drills are marked for size but it’s a good idea to number the packaging slots with a permanent marker.

    Four StarsTaps and dies very good would recommend

    Good price for a useful set of taps and diesJust what I needed to re-tap a hole so I could re-attach a sink towel rail. Even if I could have bought a replacement rail it would have cost more than twice the cost of this set.Clearly states this is for mild steel and aluminium.Suggest you keep the cardboard sleeve to remind you of the sizes.

    I recommend this set.Only used twice but already fixed two issues. Therefore value for money as will last a long time.
