Shameless Plug - TapDie Co
« on: March 26, 2012, 05:07:49 PM »
I have no connection with this firm, other than as a very satisfied customer.  Following a couple of posts by Bogstandard here:  http://madmodder.net/index.php?topic=5491.msg58212#msg58212, and others,  I happened to be in London village recently on an unconnected matter.  I phoned the TapDie Co office and explained that I was in the area and would like to call in to purchase a few items.

It was pointed out to me that the office is not really a shop, but as I was passing by they would try to accommodate me.  In fact, I had the most pleasant welcome, I purchased all my needs and left a very happy chap.   :beer:

Worth a look if you need taps or dies:  www.tapdie.com

Normally internet or phone orders  only.

Once again, usual disclaimers....

One thing that puts me off them is they make their taps etc out of HQS which they say is better than HSS but HQS isn't a list steel and if you google it only the Tap and Die company use it.
They also supply Tracy tools and most of their gear is listed as carbon steel so I'm dead wary.

Also their prices out stupid.
