Land Rover Monthly Magazine carried out a product review on a range of tap and die sets and concluded that the Draper 37 piece Metric Tap and Die Set, Stock No. 79203, be given the RECOMMENDED award.
“We were initially pretty shocked that a reasonably comprehensive set – covering metric fine sizes M3-M12 – made from ultra durable HSS, could sell for less than fifty quid. But, actually, when you look a little more closely, it turns out that only the drill bits supplied are HSS. Little is said about what the taps are made from; we think tungsten steel from the pleasing way they performed. In many ways, this is like a cut-down version of the Best Buy, complete with split dies, a taper and plug tap per size, and a good smattering of accessories.”
– PERFORMANCE – 8/14.
– IS IT WORTH THE MONEY? – 6/6.
– OVERALL SCORE – 14/20
