Land Rover Monthly Magazine carried out a product review on a range of tap and die sets and concluded that the Draper 75 piece Combination Tap and Die Set – Metric and BSP, Stock No. 79205, be given the RECOMMENDED award.
“Take the Best Buy, exchange that red tin for a blue one, and change the plastic insert from black to white, and you pretty much get this set. On the bright side, that means thread sizes M3-M12 – in coarse and fine – are covered. And, of course, mustn’t forget that 1/8in BSP either. Also, just like the Best Buy, each size is catered for with a split die, taper tap, and a plug tap. Last but not least, accessories thrown in include two tap wrenches, a die stock, plus the ever-useful thread pitch gauge.”
– PERFORMANCE – 10/14.
– IS IT WORTH THE MONEY? – 4/6.
– OVERALL SCORE – 14/20
