About us

Draper Tools was started in 1919 when the founder, Bert Draper, sold government surplus and tools in markets around the Kingston Upon Thames area. This led to the purchase of the original warehouse, from which the Draper Tool Company Limited as we know it today was born, although at this time it was known as B. Draper & Son Limited.

  1. Bil Bottles

    Good valueGot through Amazon Warehouse. The damage was extremely minor, confined to the case only and fixed in 5min. All parts were inside and perfect – excellent value

  2. Robinredbreast

    For the money it’s worth itTapped stand for a 10mm lamp holder fitting. All OK. Nothing broken. Neat box of stuff.

  3. From Dorset

    DisappointedGiven as Christmas gift, had been waiting to receive but very disappointed on first use as the die used split within the first five minutes. 😟😟

  4. Graham Overton

    Good kit including correct drills.Good kit and useful having the correct drill sizes included. I feel it is a little on the expensive side.

  5. Deltaandy

    Not bad for the moneyUsed it a few times with no dramas all good so far.

  6. DG

    An all-in-one disaster. Don’t waste your time.A missing piece, re-painted metal case to cover rust and scratches, visible wear on the parts, along with the crumbling black painting. I am not sure if the seller knows the meaning the word of “new”.


    BrilliantGreat product, would recommend

  8. Amazon Customer

    Five StarsGood

  9. Uncle Longbeard

    Terrible quality. Made ofI’ve got exactly the same set signed by Clarke, but it is the same but those are just cheap Chinese sets rebranded by those UK based companies. The drills are bad but the taps are disaster. It can’t make the thread on mild steel without loosing a few teeth. Two taps broken in half on simple tasks, the others have broken parts so useless anyway. Total utter rubbish. Good for aluminium at best

  10. Fixa

    Could do betterFor just under £80 it’s not to bad,(I didn’t expect top engineering quality)but at the claimed RRP of around £200 it’s just not on. The taps & dies are quite well made and should be capable of cutting a tidy amount of threads, “but” and there’s always a “but” somewhere,and in this case it’s the most essential piece of the kitnamely the die-holder, it looks and feels like it belongs in my grand-daughters Bob the Builder tool set. Whilst you could get away by using Mole grips or a spanner on the taps if the wrench gave up the ghost, when (more so than if)the die holder gives up then your up the creek, in fact there’s a much much better one in the less than a tenner (for rough jobs)set that I bought in Aldi. So to sum up it’s a fairlygood piece of kit let down only by a silly RRP and a cheap & nasty die-holder.
