What are Tap and Die Sets?

Tap and die sets are used by engineers and mechanics to cut, maintain and clean internal and external threads for bolts and screws.  A tap is used for the internal threads (the female) and a die is used for the external threads (the male).

How do Tap and Die Sets work?

A tap is used alongside a tap wrench to cut an internal thread into a piece of metal so that it can act as a nut, and a die is used alongside a die holder to cut the external surface of a piece of metal so that it can act like a bolt.

What are the benefits of using Tap and Die Sets?

  • Keeping threads clean and tight can aid in precision engineering
  • Repairing a thread can save you from having to replace larger parts
  • Being able to create a thread exactly where you want it enables you to fabricate with greater freedom
