Topic tags/keywords: tap die ancient threading

Hi friends

I got my hands on a tap and die set that I belive is of quite some age.

It looks to be in great shape, and in that regard I’m both curious about the age of this set, as well as the usage.

The total set that I got consisted actually of several items as you see in this picture:

However, lets start by focusing on the Pegoeut 45mm tap and die.
I belive that these parts belong together. Both the taps are marked with 45mm, and the same is the die.
The drill seems to be 37mm.
One of the taps seems to be more flattend then the other.

So my question about this set is if you too think it belongs together, and if so when I should use which tap and if there are any adjustments to be done to the die part dependent of what tap I’m using.
BTW, the die has two cutters.

Factual I have nothing to add. I Googled “Brevetes, tap and die” as I’m sure you had, and got Zip under all. However under images I got several pics of items marked Brevetes, you may want to hunt them down.

Seems using “Peugeot Freres Brevetes” as a search term might be prudent.

Adding tap, and die got a lot of hits.

I find it interesting in that it’s certainly from tooled metal, yet has wooden handles instead of the metal ones usually seen. So [email protected]@l factor is off the charts. Plus it sure doesn’t look like HF level quality, much much higher.

I’m quite supriced that it is so hard to find any information on this set.
The full set I have, with the threading tool, two taps and die, tap and the drill is for 45mm.
However, there is also the larger tap that I belive is maybe 60mm – but for that there is no threading tool.
I assume that to use it I would have to find another way of threading the screw. Very doable, for example with a router, as long as you have the tap.

The lack of information around this makes me wonder if it might be quite old.

Peogoeut tools has a website. They may be able to answer your questions about your set if you contact them. They have been in business since I believe 1810.
