The 48-pc SAE Metric Thread Restorer Kit Makes Tough Jobs Easier
With the Craftsman 48-pc SAE metric thread restorer kit, mechanics and handymen no longer need fear stripped bolts. This kit contains everything you need to repair and restore old, damaged and stripped threads on bolts and studs, whether they are internal or external. For internal repairs, use the rethreading taps and dies with standard wrenches and a light oil for chasing out damaged threads and removing nicks and burrs. For external repairs, use the files to restore damaged threads any diameter, right or left hand.
The rethreading taps and dies of the 48-pc SAE metric thread restorer kit feature hardened steel for strength and durability, and hex-shaped, they're easy to use with both socket and wrench. This 48-piece tooling set is color-coded with metric sizes in gold, National Fine sizes in black and National Course sizes in bright silver. A solid restoration set, built to get bolts and holes fixed fast, add it to your garage, for solid performance you can count on.

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.
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.
This is a fantastic kit for the price. The quality is the same as much more expensive pieces from high end brands. A necessity for any serious tool box.
This is a great set. It is made by the same company that supplies the professional truck brands. This is not a tap and die set, and should not be used to cut new threads. I used it to clean the stripped threads on a part that sells for $350 new so the kit paid for itself in one use. I now use the kit on all kinds of rusty threads and can't believe that I made due without these tools for so long. This set is made in the USA. There is no guarantee on this kit, but replacements parts are available from various truck-brand (SO) websites for cheap.

Very pleased to see that this kit is still made in the USA, and it's my understanding it is made by the same manufacturer that provides the same kit to the truck brands.
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.
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!
