I'll give it a thumbs up for its intended use... I'll have to abuse it quite a bit more before, I can say it has any star number ratings.

One of the company I worked with had a few of them, not a bad tool concept, their problem was, if you are constantly doing the same size all-thread, the cutting edges dull in that area and then don’t work, real well. Not sure if there are different grades of them or if they are all the same manufacture.

Modified to have (2) opposed sq. carbide inserts might be nice.

You'd get 8 edges per insert.

Jack.
I think there is a carbide one cost a little more. and yep it does state that in the product info guide, a small piece of paper.

but it's intended to be used for several sizes of stock. I'm guessing why the cone shape design... but never the less it does work and prolly will last a while if used for different sizes, not just one... but then again mine is HSS and only cost me a buck and a buck for shipping so I will order about 10 and I should be in good supply when one goes south on me..
this one came out of China, not a U.S. made.

Here is, another useful tool. great for the sheet metal guys and auto body guys
and It did not cost 200 bucks although it is made as well as branded ones.
it's for popping threaded rivets this one came with the common Metric and SAE dies. and a few thread rivets some might call em something else.

I find a use for this tool, often enough to spend the pocket change on it.
works way better than using screw clips that always break or strip out.

You beat me to it. I was thinking exactly that except stacking two inserts per side to get more range of diameters. Now that I think about it, it would probably be easier to make two or three tools with different ranges.

In theory. And maybe, in reality, would be a perfect idea.
But what would the math cost figure be?
I pay roughly 2 bucks a piece shipped!
And a carbide tool like this one is around 12 bucks each shipped.

So one with replaceable carbide inserts, the cost would be the initial tool its self that cost would be...?...$, and replacement inserts cost would be...?...$
So what would the math be for that...
and the amount of use it would be used, would it or would it not warrant the much higher cost of the tool... and that would very largely in the difference of a U.S made tool or Chinesium produced tool.

As for the range this one does 3/8" up to 7/8" and it will last a good while if you don't solely confine it, to doing just one size.
But, if one size is all a person. works with, in the field. I can see where an individual one size, would be more useful with replaceable cutters but then I go back to well 2 bucks VS's cost.

Anyways' that's just my sole opinion and prolly, worth about two cents.
And now I'll take my cheap ass back to my regularly scheduled QVC shopping network...

More just arrived, of, the few I ordered...
I won't say I am totally impressed. I've seen a little better quality, but it's not so bad I wouldn't use it on an everyday job. and does make some places and hose clamps among other style clamp's a bit more assessably easier.

Now the blow molded case IMO serves no purpose as they will all just get thrown in a drawer in the big box. this set comes extremely handy when working on Ford F250 and up series diesel considering how hard and bunched together some of the crap under the hood is. may not allow you to use less profanity while under a Ford Hood but maybe less "time" cussing things...
Okay, Okay Fords and Imports!...
