The GEARWRENCH 114 Pc. Ratcheting Tap and Die Set, SAE/METRIC came to my attention when I was searching for a more user-friendly set.
I have cut thousands of threads in my career and one of the things I always hated was the hand-over-hand turning of the taps and dies. Not only is it tiresome, it’s difficult to keep the tool inline with the hole or shaft and easy to break off a tap.
GEARWRENCH as solved this problem by including RATCHETING Tap Handles and Die Stocks. Each one has a selector lever to reverse direction or for Non-ratcheting. Also included is a Twist Lock Guiding System that reduces die “walk back,” adapters, Spiral Easy-Outs screw extractors, and SAE and Metric thread gauges.
This set includes (48) ea. high carbon steel Taps and Dies in SAE and Metric sizes ranging from #4-40 to 3/4” and 3mm to 18mm.
I believe this is the ideal tool set for the service professional, auto repair mechanic, handyman, or home workshop.
I really like GEARWRENCH 114 Pc. Ratcheting Tap and Die Set, SAE/METRIC because it has everything I need to do almost any threading job easier and faster.
