I bought this last time around. Already saved my ass a few times

Last time I bought a cheap tap & die set to tap an aluminium block the tap fell to bits, didn't even get one good thread out of it. Does anyone know how good this is?

Hmm interesting. Would like to know how good this is too.

Tap and Die set. Whoo whoo, hold me back, will be ready to buy a dozen when they open!!!

Not something I would trust to use often but for one off jobs I would give it a go at this price

This one is better value......and with a lot of buyers and good reviews.....less of a risk.

the aldi one looks a nice set - seems to include the proper sized drill bits as well which the ebay one above doesn't.

It has M4 to M12 with 2 different thread sizes for each...

shudder
you know you're in the **** when you're using one of these!

what I meant was say you're using a 7mm tap, you need to drill the hole 6.25mm or something (ie not a standard size), it looks like the aldi set comes with these drills in the special sizes which the ebay one doesn't.

The tap and die holders in the Aldi set look better quality too. Does either set have split dies though..
