A very high quality product and made in the USA

I purchased my set about a year ago and I have used it extensively to repair damaged bolt threads and to clean up tapped holes when you do not want any of the original material removed.  I do a lot of car restoration work and if a customer wants the original fasteners to be reused in certain areas for judging criteria.  I will run the them through the thread restorer to remove years of rust to put the fastener back to as manufactured size.  And I will run the chasers through the any tapped hole that has had paint or rust find its way into it which interferes with the bolt fit.  I always just use a little Tap-Magic when using them and I have had nothing but success.  Made in the USA.  Great Product.

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.

Good value set

This set is very different from tap/die sets which will mess up a hole or thread if used to "repair" the hole or thread as they will cut new threads. Much better to use this thread restorer kit to fix threads or holes and usually reuse the fastener too.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent kit for the value

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Fantastic set

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.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

Excellent kit at a great price, and made in USA

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 would recommend this product to a friend.

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.
