    yes it does has some use,but in most shops they will have taps and dies and a thread cutting lathe to chase the threads with, and i have had both metric and inch versions of these (made in USA)in my tool box for 20 years now.am i the only one who reads tool catalogs anymore?

    Nice, sometimes getting a die on munged up threads is not so easy. This tool is not cheap! $133.00 on Amazon $46.00 on ebay

    I see thread files on Ebay all the time for under 24 bucks some as cheap as 12 dollars but they don't have the extra grinding on the ends for internal threads but those extra grindings are pretty much useless anyway as far as i am concerned
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    These thread files have been around for longer than I have, still useful in some cases when a threaded part is protruding from a machine you do not need to dismantle but it has to be the right pitch. I find a triangular needle file and eye glass has got me out of trouble many times.

    Very useful tool.
    Inside my threading drawer I have good HASE thread restore file and also cheap Chinese one.
    But one of the best internal restore tool is NES thread repair kit. Have NES1007 3-Pc Internal Thread Repair 3-Piece Set 5/16" - 13/16, M8-20, which I also keep inside that drawer and this is the reason why I don't have plastic case anymore. I got it as a present, otherwise I wouldn't buy that expensive stuff. Used it several times and must say that this one is much better than thread file.

    Cheers,

    Thanks for the comment, you are absolutely right, an expensive tool... it is not used every day, but when you use it is because the situation has been complicated ajajjaja I live in Spain and the tool has cost me 33 euros, greetings! (translator)
