it'e good

Unless your thread is really destroyed, these re-thread dies and taps will fix the threads. Tip: Instead of drilling out and inserting a HeliCoil, just go to the next largest size SAE ot Metric thread and re-tap at that size. For example, if you ruin a metric 6mm bolt, then just drill and re-tap for a 1/4" - 20 bolt

Absolutely useless! Don't waste your money.

You would be better off just running your bolt through the thread you are trying to clean up.  This is not even close to the sharpness or hardness of a standard tap.  Waste of money.  Had to go out and buy a real tap to clean up the threads.  Would've bought the tap in the first place, but Sears did not have the size I needed.

Good tool, good price

Bought this set because I'm restoring an old car & need to correct years of old rusty parts. This set is great for the reason it was created

Great deal, even if incomplete

This set was in 'Clearance' due to a missing part. The price was outstanding. It's about the last threading tool that I didn't have so will complete my threading-problem/solution arsenal.

DO NOT BUY

Broke a retheading tap, and was told I CANNOT get another one, even buy one. Craftsman products have really gone down hill.. Even ************* stands behind their products better than Sears.

Still made in USA!

As more and more Craftsman products are switching to Chinese production (alot of american tool brands are doing it too), it is getting rarer to find tools still made in USA, get this while it still is american made, you'll be glad you did!

this is the right tool to clean up threads

These are really thread chasers. I used this tool set to clean up some threads on a cylinder head and it worked. It removed some dirt and little bit of metal shavings from the threaded hole. Just go slow when you turn it. It's better to use this tool if you want to clean up threads, if you want to cut new threads you would use a tap which is a different tool.

how did you ever get along without it?

you wouldn't think you would use one of these so much until you have one, then you use it all the time.

Worth the money

<p>I am an engine machinist and builder whereas I am constantly going over and repairing threads. This kit is excellent! I have used it on a daily basis since I bought it and is much better than using taps and dies which will remove material. I would recomend this set highly.</p>

Craftsman 40 pc. Tap and Die Set is the best for the dollar

I got this 40 pc. set a few weeks ago. The most useful part of the set for me is the thread chaser. I work at an auto shop and I use almost all Craftsman tools and this is the best for the price.

The Master Rethreader Set handles the job perfectly!

<p>This is a rebranded Kastar product.  Kastar specializes in a number of areas, including rethreading tools, so the quality is definitely there, but with the added convenience of Sears/Craftsman service.</p>
<p>A rethreading kit is far preferrable to a standard tap and die kit, as you only want to chase the threads and clean them up, not cut entirely new ones.</p>
<p>This kit is nicely comprehensive for most tasks and carries a great price.</p>
<p>No, the warranty isn't &quot;lifetime&quot;, but this is a wear-product.  Sandpaper doesn't carry a lifetime warranty.  Saw blades don't carry a lifetime warranty.  Taps and dies that wear out aren't going to carry a lifetime warranty, either.</p>

good concept, poor quality control.

<p>It it cheaply made and poorly put together. Parts not right, nor labeled right and needs to be sent back to get the right parts labeled right.</p>

Terrible, do not buy unless for light service

<p>The taps in this set are incredibly weak. I broke one in half trying to clean up the threads on my car frame where the trailer hitch mounts. The tap was not cross threaded and I was using a 6&quot; ratchet so not a whole lot of torque. The tap kept getting stuck and so I was working it back and forth, cleaning half a turn at a time, when it broke. The threads are not sharp enough on these taps and they are made of weak metal so they will not cut new threads easily and tend to bind. Ended up buying a higher quality tap which cleaned up the threads in no time.</p>
<p>Unless you are planning on light usage, I would go with one of the other more expensive sets. The metal will be of higher strength and the taps will be much sharper and cut a cleaner thread in less time and aggravation.</p>
