Yeah, Ive had a set since Christmas 1963. They came in my first socket set that Santa got from Montgomery Wards. Powr Kraft brand.
I only got a couple left, though.

I'm pretty sure the set yer talkin about doesn't go down small enough for the most used tap sizes.

Naw...the midget mexican adjusted the wheel so that the gearhead dragged the sidewalk...about 250 to 300 hrs of riding the concrete sidewalks is all it takes.

Breeze, you beat me to it. I've had that set since the mid 80's and was going to post the link but got side lined on a job. The smaller ones are 1/4" drive, the larger, 3/8".

They are all I use any more, I have better control when I add a extension with my ratchet. I never did like the adjustable handle, just to big for a small 4 or 5 mm tap.
