A stripped or threaded nut or bolt can be a cause of unbelievable frustration, regardless of whether it's on the car, at the job site or even something around the home. Time can easily be lost when it means an unwanted trip to the nut and bolt shop, or worse still, if the thread in question isn't that easily replaceable. A Tap and Die Set like this set from ToolPRO can be the answer to these problems; complete with a durable metal case and moulded plastic tray for easy allocation, this kit comes with taps, dies and their respective holders to re-thread any stubborn nut or bolt.
One might be apprehensive about using a tap & die set if they never have before, but they really are quite simple to use. A tap, as the name suggests, is a male threaded tool bit designed to cut a thread into the inside surface of a hole; a process call tapping, which creates a female thread. A die is used to cut male thread on to a cylindrical rod; for example, threading of a bolt. Depending on whether you wish to create a male or female thread, the appropriate holders for each of these are used to slowly cut this thread into the metal, and can be used to either clean a stripped thread, or even create a new thread.Tap & Dies
