Irwin - All Purpose Drill and Tap Set

When you get into more complicated projects like building models, mounting rifle scopes, or repairing electric motors you will find you need to drill and tap holes to accept set screws or build mounts for other parts you are installing.  Taps cut screw threads into holes of a specific size so they can be threaded with bolts for mounting, assembly, or use as set screws.

This is a nice set for doing small threading jobs around the home or auto and is affordable for the do it yourselfer.  The pocket size set contains six taps and six matching drills in a handy folding plastic case along with a T-handle tap wrench.  All you need to do is add your drill motor and you can drill holes and then tap them with threads for set screws as needed.

Drilling and tapping holes is a little more complicated than a beginner project but it is fairly easy to do when you try. It just takes a steady hand and eye to make sure the hole is drilled in straight and level and in the proper place.  The taps can also be used to clean up or chase threaded holes, cleaning them up and straightening up the buggered threads.

The set of tools is by Irwin and is made in America of high speed carbon steel and properly hardened for long life.  The 13-piece set includes 6 chromed taps and 6 high-speed drill bits, and a T-handle wrench. The drill sizes are 43, 36, 29, 25, 21 and 7.  Tap sizes 4-40NC, 6-32NC, 8-32NC, 10-24NC, 10-32NF and 1/2-20NC. The set of tools comes packed in a molded plastic case that keeps everything together and protects the tools when they are in your tool box.

A similar set is available in metric sizes if you want to use other than USA National Fine or Coarse threads.
