The tap wrench handle and the clamp block it's meant to screw into have really poorly cut threads which don't engage, so the wrench is effectively useless. I'd use the set to re-cut the thread but it's a left handed thread, so I can't.

Also, on the packaging, it says it's suitable for creating or cleaning threads in mild steel, ally or brass. Which is fine for most needs but makes me wonder if it's covering for poor quality steel?
