    You can get a cheap Tap and Die set from harbor freight for $11.99 and up.

    Rather than buying a set, probably be easier to take it to a machine shop and have them do it. I have a Snap On set that I have only used a couple of times and I work on cars for a living. Cheap sets don't hold up and it's no fun trying to get a broken tap out of something your working on.
