Be aware that a thread chaser kit is different than a tap and die set in that it restores threads without removing as much metal. The one that I linked to is a universal thread chaser that adapts to any bolt diameter up to 1/2". I've had one like it in my toolbox for decades and it's saved me many a fastener over that time.
