RS PRO Carbon Steel Metric Tap & Die Set

This Metric Tap and Die Set from our RS PRO range are manufactured from high-quality C45 carbon steel. All the essential pieces of equipment and accessories in one storage case will help you with cleaning or cutting new threads on fasteners, holes or much more.

Each of these sets contains:

• Tap wrench bar - both handles are chrome plated with knurled ends for positive grip and control
• Die holder - used for holding round dies for the clean cutting of external threads
• Screwdriver
• Range of metric taps and dies

What can you use this set for?

A good rule of thumb to follow is the stronger the steel used in the construction of your tap and die set, the wider range of materials you will be able to work with. It is important to ensure that the tools you are using are up to the job in hand.

Use them for:
• Automotive applications and repair
• General maintenance workshops
• Minor fix ups
• Machinery repairs

What is the difference between tapping and threading?

The threading operation creates threads on the outside of a fastener, like a bolt, and it's done with a die tool. The tapping operation creates threads on the inside of the drilled hole, and it's done with a tapping tool.
