The stet is complete with all of its components. The tap handles all work, the die handles all work. The taps and dies are all sharp with the majority of them having not been used. These US made Hansen taps and dies were as nice of a HCS set as any available. With proper use and care, these taps and dies will outperform the majority of HCS tools on the market today and even some of the HSS tools.
This is a big set of small tools well organized into a very compact and user friendly kit. Always use a quality cutting fluid with your taps and dies.
Clean them after each use and never start with a dirty tap or die. It is best to use the. Drill size, or, with the permission of your engineer, the next size larger if tapping hard or thick. It is best to lightly counter. Sink each hole before tapping.

The Super Sets were generally available in hardware and variety stores. These are/were a consumer grade affordable/decent quality consumable tool. The quality was generally constant within the range of the product. Quality HCS taps and dies like these are used a little differently than the high quality HSS tools, and sometimes for different purposes."Practically" considered inferior to HSS, HCS takes a keener edge than HSS and can hold that keener edge longer depending upon use. HSS is stronger, less brittle and will hold a good edge longer than the HCS and with rougher service. I prefer HSS when machine threading or even hand threading materials that work harden a lot such as stainless steel, or materials that can work harden inconsistently such as some coppers. When choosing tools for industrial use, all of these things matter a great deal but none are as important as learning/training.
To get the most out of a general purpose set such as the set in this listing, one must understand how to use HCS taps and dies. I always recommend reading and studying the Audel Millwrights and Mechanics Guide by Carl A. It is really inexpensive when you consider that it can save you from spending hundreds of dollars on tools you don't need and replacement costs. I use HCS and HSS and carbide taps, drills, and cutters extensively enough to know that each type of tool has its place and the best place for this Henry L Hansen Tap and Die 42pc Metric Super Set is in your tool cabinet!Sale is for metric set in the red box only.
