DeWalt Metric Steel Tap and Die 17-pc Set - High Carbon Steel - Black Oxide Bits - Precise Threading is rated

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.

Great product, wish it came with a case.
This kit worked wonderfully in creating the necessary threaded holes in some galvanized pipe for a project. Works fantastically if you know how to use these kits. I suggest watching some videos or practicing with lighter materials if you're snapping bits on your first hole.
The only drawback to this product which makes it impossible to recommend is that there is no storage for this, it's just a bunch of loose items that will get lost or damaged, or damage other things in your kit.
