Hey all... i have been waiting a while to post this. it is a tool kit i bought for work but use in my laser stuff too. it is a kit by greenlee tools. it is drill bits that are combo drill and tap in one tool. i have been using them a while now. i mostly use the 10/32 and 1/4-20. i have tons of drill time on them and they are still super sharp. i drill slow speed with cutting fluid. the only draw back is that you cant drill deeper than the actual cutting/drilling tip. if you do then the tap part starts to catch and you will probably snap the bit in the hole. these tools are great for the diyer. i find them especially handy for making set screw holes in heat sinks. and now a pic. note, the pic is of a metric set but they come in standard as well.

i use rapid tap. but when i lose my can or run out i use motor oil. it works surprisingly well. i'm sure you know but never use a lubricant like wd40.
what kind of kit did you find? like a whole tap set?????

Greenlee is top notch quality. I have a greenlee journeymen set (electrician) and I love it. If you're on the edge, jump because Greenlee is awesome.

No "Greenlee" brand, here, but you can find "Dormer" tools relatively easily ..... not cheap, but they have drill bits sequences from 0,5mm to 10mm in 0.5mm steps for "commercial / hobby" use, and "industrial / professional" sequences from 0.1mm to 13mm in 0.1mm steps, and from 13mm to 25mm in 0.5mm steps (at higher cost, being non-standard diameters, but still can be found in big industrial shops)

No "drill+tap" bits, anyway, at least not around here.
