Check it Out

Be sure to purchase a bottle of Craftsman 4 oz. General Purpose Cutting Fluid (#52329) with your tap and diecarbon steel set. This fluid acts as a lubricant and extends the life of taps and dies by minimizing breaking and inhibiting rust. It can be used on all metals including steel, cast iron, aluminum and brass for every project need.

How About That!

As you begin to use a die to thread a bolt, it is important to move the ratchet back from time to time to help remove the burrs and shavings, residue left from cutting the metal off the bolt. If the shavings are not removed, they can get caught in the die and get jammed under the next tooth and damage the thread you are cutting.
