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.

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.

      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.

      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.

      Great value thread restorer kit

      This kit is made in USA and has both Metric and SAE thread sizes. I looked around at what other options were available and found that this appears to be the same kit you can buy for 3X the price from your local tool delivery service, it is also very convenient to have the thread files included in the same box. I bought 2 of these, one for each shop at work.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Excellent Thread Restorer

      I haven't used it yet but looks like a high quality product but I have used other brands versions which looks exactly the same and it is a life saving tool to have in your tool box. This is not to be used as a tap and die for cutting threads! This product is for straightening out threads that are messed up.

      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. EDIT: This kit comes from the same manufacturer that the truck brands take and slap their logo on and sell for 3x-5x the price. This set has saved my **** twice already - once when I encountered a deformed wheel stud and the grinding bars filed the threads back to shape and once when I deformed an intake manifold bolt that threaded into the engine block. A quick run through of the bolt in the proper die and the bolt threaded back into its hole like butter. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      Gets the job done

      Cleans threads right up. I needed a 14mm size tap and die and there aren't too many inexpensive sets with this size available. Keep in mind, that this is not a true tap/die set and mainly to chase existing threads. This kit had just what I needed. I would give it 5 stars but the threads of my 8mm size "die" sheared right off on some stubborn threads. Thanks Craftsman for your Forever Warranty. I did have some problems replacing it since this is an ONLINE ONLY item and not available in stores. Finally got it replaced.

      I would recommend this product to a friend.

      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.

      I used this to clean the threaded holes on an Antique engine I was rebuilding. It had all the sizes I needed and worked great.

      Great

      Made in the USA and it does what it is supposed to do, fixes bunged up threads inside and out.

      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.
