The May edition of Car Mechanics magazine performed a product test on a range of tap and die sets and awarded the ‘Best Buy’ accolade to the Draper 75 piece Combination Tap and Die Set – Metric and BSP, Stock No.79205.
“Here’s a set with almost 80 pieces that’s sensibly laid out and, best of all, everything stays put when the case is closed and carried. There are actually 18 sizes catered for – M3-M12 coarse, M2-M12 fine, plus 1/8BSP – and for every size there’s both a secondary and plug tap. All taps, dies and drills are made from sharp and durable HSS, and the dies are our preferred split-type. As a bonus, a screw pitch gauge and T-handle tap holder are thrown in, too.”
