2.0 out of 5 stars Not good. Not dreadful either, but not good.
The tap holder is poor quality, the die holder not much better. The screwdriver supplied is a flat blade, yet the die holder screw is cross head.None of which are show stoppers. The dies are non-split type, so single cut only, and there is no lead in. There are also burrs left where the cutting tool passed through. I only bought it to clean threads up and remove thread...

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good. Not dreadful either, but not good., 15 Nov 2010
This review is from: Silverline MS51 Tap and Die Set 40-Piece (DIY & Tools)
The tap holder is poor quality, the die holder not much better. The screwdriver supplied is a flat blade, yet the die holder screw is cross head.None of which are show stoppers. The dies are non-split type, so single cut only, and there is no lead in. There are also burrs left where the cutting tool passed through. I only bought it to clean threads up and remove thread lock. This job it does well, so for that purpose it is fit for the job. If your usage aspirations are beyond that, then look elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Low Cost Product, 8 April 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Silverline MS51 Tap and Die Set 40-Piece (DIY & Tools)
The quality of this product is reflected in the price.

I needed a couple of taps in a hurry and this fitted the requirement.

You may need to reprofile some of the taps with a grinder for use.

The tap holder is not at all well made.

I am now regarding this set simply as a box to hold my taps and dies. As the originals wear or break, I am gradually replacing them with good quality items.

You get what you pay for.

This review is from: Silverline MS51 Tap and Die Set 40-Piece (DIY & Tools)
Returned for full refund, used the 8mm tap to run a rusty thread out , the tap never it twisted and burred on the tap threads and ruined the nut , had to grind nut off and weld a new one on , the quality is also poor when inspecting the other pieces , the dies are all off centre and nothing is very well machined

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok for cleaning, not for tapping, 20 July 2013
This review is from: Silverline MS51 Tap and Die Set 40-Piece (DIY & Tools)
Poor quality, and the 6mm tap would not even cut an internal thread in brass, which is normally easy. May be OK for cleaning existing threads, but not for any precision work. You get what you pay for.

When I buy items from Amazon, I am always delighted with the product, but I'm afraid this product did not do the job I bought it for. Sorry.
