Questions & Answers

does this thread /thick metal

does this thread /thick metal
Asked by: sc
It would thread thicker metal, maybe 3/4" but you would have to go slow since the tap and dies are small.

Good storage method

Does anyone have a good way to store this set? The plastic case it comes in seems like it was intended for storage, but it's pretty cheaply made, and the bits fall out if not opened just right.
Asked by: fuzzz
my one criticism with the set is there is no storage case or means for storing the set. The plastic it comes in will not accommodate reasonable storage provision. For a few cents Dewalt could have provided means of storage.

The tap handle is for 1/4" what is used for the lesser sizes included in the set

Asked by: SA53
The tap handle will accomodate all of the taps in the set; just tighten the collar more.

DEWALT Metric Steel Tap and Die Set (17-Pieces) is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 65.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is it possible do give something less than one star. Broke the tap first time I used it. I bought... Is it possible do give something less than one star. Broke the tap first time I used it. I bought for the name but this is not Dewalt quality. Just cheap Chinese crap which is all you ever seem to be able to find anymore. Tried using the thread dies to chase 1/4-20 threads. Ended up using a needle file. Just cheap crap and now resides in the garbage.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Hex shaped dies! Love that. Taps... Hex shaped dies! Love that. Taps seem of good quality. M8 worked well. I bought the set since the individual prices were a tad high. As a set it is a good value. Cons, no case! I knew that when making purchase, but still, a plastic box or tray of some short should be standard.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk - don't waste your $$ Bought this set to tap and thread four (FOUR) holes in 1/2 in steel bar. Took my time, researched, watched numerous machinist videos on proper form, etc. First two holes did pretty good, little to no problem. Third hole sheared the drill bit (took my time, used oil, etc) and the end of the bit got stuck in the hole. Used a size up to widen the hole,extract the broken tip and make new threads. Second bit sheared off too, but got all the way through, so I could back out the broken bit. Again, took my time, used oil, etc, and this time the tap sheared off. Lost two bits and a tap on a single hole. And of course, HD sells everything DeWalt, except for the replacement drill bits, because they are metric, not fractional. Clearly DeWalt has gone the Chinese route. I didn't want to spend a ton on a professional set, b/c I'm doing one little project, but clearly I got what I paid for. Don't bother with this junk.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not thought out or tested The two smaller taps do not fit in the handle in its tightest position. I used a wrench to tighten it down and when it’s as tight as it will go, it will click with each rotation. The two taps will fall out of the handle if you turn it upside down. Also, I broke the drill bit within the first 5 mins which does happen. Might have been on the first hole? The bit from my kit lasted for the other 14 holes. Because the tap didn’t fit the handle properly, I used my drill extremely slowly to tap these holes and it lasted until hole 11, then snapped. I expect more from Dewalt.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, but could be improved Taps. I needed this set because it includes several of the smaller metric sizes (especially M4). Most competitor sets go from M6 and above. I'ts also nice to have the M3 and M5; though less common, I'm glad to have them on hand. The M7 seems an odd choice, many sets skip it and include M8 instead, which is much more common. Oddly, the M7 appears to be a "bottom" tap whereas the others are all "taper" taps. It's great that this set includes the proper drill size for each of the taps. I've used the M5 and M6 but have use the M4 to tap a half-dozen holes thru 10mm Aluminiun with very nice results. (Go slow, lubricate, use proper technique to back up and "break" the chips, and be sure to clean out the holes afterward.) Tap Handle. Others have noted problems with the tap handle. I purchased my set in Dec 2015, so perhaps DeWalt has addressed the problem. I found the M7 fit properly as did all the other taps. The tap handle has two grip tiers. The M3, M4, and M5 go deeper inside to the small grip. The M6 and M7 use the wider grip at the tip. However, for the M3, the collar nut on the tap handle couldn't pinch it down fully. It turns out that that there were a few burrs in the cross-cut slots that the tap nut pinches. Removing the nut, and filing off the burrs with a small needle file, corrected the problem. The handle now pinches M3 tap properly. Entire operation took only a few minutes. Really not an issue. Dies. The dies appears to be of good quality. So far I've used the M6 and M5 to thread a 10mm length of Aluminum rod with good results. (Even if you don't have cutting oil, *any* oil is better than none at all.) Die Handle. The die handle needs improvement. The dies have flat hexagonal sides spaced 16mm face to face. Unfortunately, there are no slots or divots to mate to the side thumb screw of the tap handle. Consequently, the die will slip out with even slight force. Case. Thee is no case of any sort! Just a cheap plastic bubble package! This looks like it was designed by some marketing person to show off the product for retail display. But anyone that actually *uses* these taps and dies wants more. You'd think that for a little bit more, DeWalt could include a nice yellow "drill index" style case to organize the dies and die handles on one side, and the taps, drills, and tap handles on the other. That keeps things organized, and easy to visually check that all items have been returned. Especially important to keep the odd sized tap drills with the taps (and not get misplaced into your random drill box.) ========== Overall I found this good value, especially so if you divide the sale price by the number of items included. It would be nice if DeWalt and Home Depot stocked the items individually in order to replace taps. Sooner or later we all break one.
