Better than a tap and die set

This set of thread chasers is better than owning a set of taps and dies for most work done with damaged threads.

Unlike a tap or die that can literally cut new threads on top of existing threads, thread chasers are designed to work with existing threads to reform them and clear out contaminants that may be choking the threads ability to match its complementary threaded fastener.

I used to do thread restoration as part of my Army direct support Machinist activities and owned several sets of smaller male and female thread chasers.

This one Craftsman set covers a pretty comprehensive size range of S.A.E. and Metric threads, all in one easy to keep track of, easily stored container.

The thread files can even be used to reform threads on the beginings of bolts and studs, to allow the chaser nuts to be used for fully restoring the whole fastener's threads.

The price of the thread chaser set is quite reasonable, too.

The only other set of thread chaser that might be nice to have right away would be the set of Craftsman sparkplug hole thread chasers.

A cross-threaded spark plug hole is just going to ruin your WHOLE day.

There are, of course, additional thread chasing tools to be had, involving either the Internet or "the Truck".

But, this set is going to take care of a high percentage of most folks needs, at a very reasonable price.

I wish I had this set, during my three year tour in the Army.

However, at the price they're sold for, I got a set for my very own SELF at one of the local Sears stores.

Highly recommended.

Weak metal

This set and the 40 piece set are made of weak metal and the taps are not sharp. The taps will bind and possibly break when you try to clean out rusty threads. This set might be ok for light work but I would recommend one of the other more expensive sets. See my review for the 40 piece set.

A necessity to save money and time

I bought this because I have been finding that bolts, nuts and metal that has been tapped is of lesser quality now a days. This is pretty complete and should handle most situations. A must have for any tool kit.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great set to own!

This set of thread restorers is a great addition to any shop or mechanics tool box or chest. With SAE and METRIC along with course and fine thread and thread files it makes a perfect set. I have used this set on both hard and softer material with ease restoring rusty threads on an old reamer that was given to me to working on my lathe. A fine set with the Craftsman name and a Full Lifetime Warranty that can't be beat!

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Great tap & die set!

This a a great tap & die set for less than $70.00. It's offers both tap and die capabilities, in both sad and metric sizes. It comes with a tap wrench and tap restorers as well. Tap and die sets from craftsman have no warranty on them, so be carefull when using the small taps. One can break them very easily. When used properly this set is a great set.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

This is the tap set you need....

This thread chaser set is a must if you are working on old anythings.  I worked on older aircraft for years and finding damaged threads, especially in aluminum, was common.  A little work restoring the threads and the part attached like new.

I was helping a friend change a clutch on an imported car years ago.  The clutch cable mounted to the bell housing with a plastic threaded fitting.  The threads were thin to begin with and were damaged when removing the cable, would not re-seat.  A little tune with the thread chaser and the fitting glided back into place.  I have had to do the same thing with triangle files in the past, no fun at all.

You need this set!

Thread Restorer saves!

I've had this set for probly over 5years and it has saved me many times. I would much rather save a nut or bolt or even a wheel stud than have to replace the part. I have used it mainly to save damaged wheel studs.  The files are very handy also for that last helpful fix.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
