THIS SET HAS BEEN SOLD I bought a tap and die set this past weekend at a local estate sale. Not being 20 years old anymore my eyesight is not good enough to read the print on the taps themselves. So just guestimating on the sizes I figured there had to be 2-56 tap in there so I bought the set. Well I was wrong, there wasn't a 2-56 tap or any other sizes I recognized and that is because it is a BA Tap and Die Set, for those of you that work on Stuart Steam engines you will know what that means. Any way, I can not use it and would like to recoup my money if I can. There is one missing tap in the top tray but there are several packages of new taps and dies under the tray including the size that is missing from the tray. This is a nice complete little set, I am asking $75 but will consider any reasonable offer. I will pay shipping to the lower 48 states if I get my asking price.
Thanks for looking,
Scott

Looks like you solved your problem Scotty, I was going to suggest that you bought a Stuart Engine kit and became a model engineer along with many more of us. A great way to while away those cold Nebraska winter days!

Incidentally, I spent 3 years around Omaha when I was stationed at Offutt AFB with the Royal Air Force back in the early 70s. I have some great memories of that place.

Take care and good luck.
