    Hi Everyone,
    I am looking to buy a decent set of left hand drill bits.
    I know I can get a set from harbor freight, but honestly if we are at the point of having a broken bolt, the situation is bad.

    you're a mechanic, and know what quality is.

    Hi HMD,
    I know quality, had to tap a fairly large hole by hand. The tap I was given was made in China, and it cut some, but the go gauge wouldn't go. I found an old Made in USA tap and it cut better (despite having been worn and a little beat up)

    Work ordered a set, over a year ago ....
