Taps and Dies are ok but the handle is junk.

It is an el cheapo tap and die set and is not investment grade. I used it to chase a few threads. I would agree the handle for the dies is crap. The taps and dies themselves do work. A "real" set is quite expensive though.

I've used a number of these kits and they generally work pretty good. As the other review states, the handle is useless. It's also hard to extract the dies and taps from the plastic holders. The thread gauge works well.

The taps and dies work just fine, its the handle for the die that is worthless. The set screw/tapped hole to hold the die strips out easily and then you can't grip the die anymore. If the die handle was better quality, this would have gotten a 4 out of 5. Same goes for the similar metric set.

Worked ok on plastic. I would not use these on metal.
