Unless I had a lot of sheet metal to tap I can not see me buying those.

I never like all in one tools, IMO you pay more for less results.
Bobm I generally agree with that statement, but these little dudes have stood up to my gorilla-grip ham-hock hands.

I haven't broken one . . . yet.

You need to remember that those are thread chasers, not taps. I think it even says so on the packaging.

But what are you tapping?

It is not unusally for me to have to tap steel that is 1/2" to 2" thick.

Obviously, sheet metal, like enclosures or even J-boxes. No argument that you need a 'real' tap for thick stuff, along with cutting oil.
