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
The product works good, but no warranty or you cannot even get a replacement piece when you break one
This USA made kit is the same one found on some of the tool trucks where its sold at a much higher price. It's an excellent kit and will cover most nuts and bolts you'll come across.
Hi all. I bought this at the Sears website. Had it shipped to the local store. Delivery took awhile. I did get a chance to use it on some Wheel Studs. Saved me the hassle of having to remove a damaged stud discovered while removing a wheel for a rotation. Due to the way the stud was damaged, I had to grind what was left of the outermost thread. And run the Die a few passes. Now the new lug nut goes on smoothly.
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.
Its perfect for what i need it for
I've been looking for such a kit for years!
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
Perfect for cleaning internal and external threads without resorting to a tap or die.
