Default I couldn't resist!

I saw this comprehensive tap and die set advertised on special for just $149.00. The material is claimed to be "Tungsten steel" and it goes up to 18mm in coarse and fine, also 3/4" in course and fine. The machining is of a high standard. Whilst I already have a lot of the sizes, this set covers many that I don't have.

Harry, When I was speaking to your lovely wife the other day, I should have requested that she cancel your Ebay account.......LOL.

Kewel. When I grow up, I'm gonna get some. But how do you keep the wood from filling them up?

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

You got a good deal. And the good thing is, you can now threads things in American threads so us yanks can understand what is going on.

This was a local buy James seen on a flyer in the mailbox. In any case, you know how lucky I was in marrying her in 1954, she actually ENCOURAGES me to buy things that make me happy.

My metalwork tools are all kept in cupboards Kelly, well away from sawdust. I cover the metal lathe and mill (when I remember!)

Many of my posted projects which have metal threads are Imperial, I also mix and match metric and Imperial router bits and template guides in order to obtain exact off-sets. This is no different to the use of letter and number drills which have been around probably since drills were invented. Having said all that, there is no doubt what-so-ever that metric is more accurate and easier to work with than Imperial and I lived with both during my long lifetime.
