Excellent kit for the value

This is a fantastic kit for the price. The quality is the same as much more expensive pieces from high end brands. A necessity for any serious tool box. EDIT: This kit comes from the same manufacturer that the truck brands take and slap their logo on and sell for 3x-5x the price. This set has saved my **** twice already - once when I encountered a deformed wheel stud and the grinding bars filed the threads back to shape and once when I deformed an intake manifold bolt that threaded into the engine block. A quick run through of the bolt in the proper die and the bolt threaded back into its hole like butter. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Restoring set

The product works good, but no warranty or you cannot even get a replacement piece when you break one

Good set


This is for repairing threads on bolts and nuts, cleaning them etc, not truly threading them, and the two types of tools should not be interchanged. Don't use threading tools to clean up your threads if you can avoid it.

That said, this set seems to work fine. Has all the common sizes, seems reasonably well made for the price. In fact I'm using it for all sorts of thread clean up that I hadn't considered before. Get some thread cutting oil and use it liberally when you use the tool.

Good tool to have if you work on older cars


This is a very good set for the money. I got it on sale by joining the Sears online buying site. Saved up points and waited for sale

Should be a required companion tool for any tap and die set.


Perfect for cleaning internal and external threads without resorting to a tap or die.

Recommend for older car work


Working on older cars this is a must have set especially if reassembly requires torquing. Quality appears good but take your time and clean and lube threads often. Have not broken one yet, working slow and carefully.

How do I return this product?


How do I return this product? It does not fit my needs. I am pleased with Sears but I was unable to use the product because it does not have the size that I needed.
