Tap n die set recommendations

(1/6) > >>

WestYorkshireBiker:
Looking for a good quality tap n die set and don't want to get cheap eBay crap. Also what sets are needed for Honda's as I've read there's some JIS threads which have a different pitch to normal metric? The bike I'm getting I know for a fact has a broken head bolt so need help getting the right gear chaps. Thanks.

Honda used some non prefered pitch threads, but still standard, in some places.
In all honesty i would buy just the sizes you need as some will need repair so you need helicoil kits anyway.

Most used size would be 6 x 1 and if its just a repair a plug tap will do but to tap a blind hole you need a taper first.

Tell me what you want to repair and ill tell you what sizes you need

Thanks. I don't have the bike yet but I'm getting some tools etc bought so I'll probably just get a standard set and buy what I need when I need it I guess. It's more what decent makes to look for tbh. Amazon and eBay recommendations seem to vary on whatever I look at.

If you want a selection of taps and dies Tracy Tools have some for £20. You can also call them for a chat to discuss exactly what you need. They have been around for years and are a reccomended source of quality engineering taps and dies. I've used them many times and never had a problem with the quality of their tools.
