-Another word of caution, when you buy cheap taps and dies, sometimes you get what you pay for. ((corkman8086 from the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=739536&​highlight=chasing+threads))+Roll form tap and dies look like the standard versions but they dont have the sharp cutting edge. \\
