This review is from: Draper 79197 6-Piece Circular Metric Die and Holder Set (DIY & Tools)
Not the very highest standard you can buy, but judged against the price, a very good product. Perfectly suitable for occasional use.
It's unfair to be too critical as the product does definitely offer value. It actually does the job required, albeit with some small compromises. This is not always the case with low priced products.
The comprises, in my opinion, are that the fit between die and holder is a little on the loose side. The holder material appears to be a light casting, so very heavy handed ness would probably break it.
For occasional use it is ok. I've cut threads from M6 to M12 with this. At the larger end you will need patience and care. The dies seem to cut reasonably well with a suitable cutting fluid.
For the price, I would recommend this product.
