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.

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.

Great

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

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.

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.
