FAQs

What thread range is this suitable for?

This set features taps to accommodate the following thread sizes: M3, M4, M5, M6, M8 and M10. There is also 6 drills suitable for each size tap.

Can this set be used with power tools?

This versatile set can be used with both hand tools and power tools, depending on the application required. Using a hand tool such as a tap wrench will provide a more controlled and precise thread, whereas a power tool will allow for rapid tapping or drilling.

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 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.
