New Craftsman Ratcheting Tap and Die Tool Set

Craftsman has come out with a new 5pc ratcheting tap and die set.

Well, it’s new but not “new.” I’ve owned a Gearwrench version of this set for years now. I don’t pull it out often, but there are times when it comes in handy. I don’t think I would want this as my one and only tap and die tool set. Here’s why:

How do you reverse a ratcheting tap and die handle?! Answer: you don’t.

The set comes with the ratcheting handle, small and large tap sockets, and a die socket that accepts hex-stock dies. There’s also a sliding handle that allows you to use the tap sockets without the ratcheting handle.

BONUS: The ratcheting T-handle can be used with Max Axess and Gearwrench pass-through sockets.

It comes with a red Craftsman tool case. There’s quite a bit of storage space at the bottom, but be sure
