I'm looking to buy a metric tap and die set, from M2 to M12, first and plug taps and dies.
I also want a UNF set, but really only for cleaning threads rather than making them.
Dormer would be my first choice, but are massively expensive (even with a hefty discount from work).
I looked at this place:and their "British Made" sets. A bit of digging on the website revealed the taps and dies are "Totem" brand, which is in fact Indian, not British. Given that the owner of tapdie.co.uk is a Mr. Nadirshaw, I put 2 + 2 together. I e-mailed Mr.Nadirshaw with the simple question of "what is the country of origin of your taps and dies", but got a load of waffle in return. All I could make out was that they are sourced from a variety of countries, including Britain. To me "British Made" means exactly that, and my question should have had a one sentence reply.
Does anyone have any experiences of this place, or any other recommendations for sets. I'm looking at spending about £150 max on the metric set, and considerably less for the UNF set, maybe up top £50.
Thanks in advance for any help.
