good find op, heat
Skating is better
Tap and Die sounds like a scary game.
Takes me back to metalwork lessons at school.....heat added (then quenched to allow further metal bashing)
The other two sizes are imperial.
Not bad price for this set, but I would not use it for stainless steel.
Ideal for accidentally cross threaded bolts
Then harden by dipping in powered potassium carbo ferro cyanide
Probably not much use for "creating" threads, but fine for cleaning up existing threads - which is the only reason I've ever used tap and die sets.
Presumably it's better not to use contactless when paying for this then?
I used this set to cut a thread on some flat pack furniture where one of the nuts had not been cut and was one of those round jobbies that fit in a drilled hole. As I was building the Moses basket stand I couldn't do without the bit nor mess about taking the thing back after 4 months. I've used it a few times and it's perfect for occasional use.
i see that aldi has a nice new website, about time!
just used this to make a screw thread in a metal table let. brilliant!
