Yup, the die handle's crap. You can tell the moment you pick it up. The sizes printed on the taps (and maybe dies, I don't recall) are not done well and wear off quickly in normal use. I've pushed the taps pretty hard and not a snap yet and for the price (and warranty) this set can't be beat.

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 SAE set.
