Typical Applications:

Tap & Dies sets are ideal for cutting thread (tapping) into materials, to create a clean fitting for bolts and other materials whereas dies are used to cutting threads on materials such as steel to allow a fitting to be screwed on and attached. Tap & Die sets combine the two, creating a versatile set that can be used in a wide range of applications. Tap & Die sets are used with hand tools and power tools such as tap wrenches and drills to achieve maximum torque and control. They are widely used in applications such as:
• Construction
• DIY
• Plumbing
• Workshops
• Renovations

FAQs:

Where are wrenches and dies stocks?
The tap wrenches and dies stocks are under the wooden top tray that houses the taps and dies.

Should I lubricate the set?
It is recommended that lubrication is regularly applied to the set when in use, to allow for friction-free threading with precision. This will ensure that a clean thread is achieved with minimal damage.

What is the difference between taps and dies?
A tap set is used to create or repair threads in holes which is ideal for things such as nuts and fittings, this process is called tapping. Die sets are used to cut threads on materials such as steel to allow a fitting to be screwed on and attached, this is called threading.
