Can this set be used with power tools?

Should I lubricate the set?

What is the difference between a tap and die?

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 rods to allow a fitting to be screwed on and attached, this is called threading.
