source for Whitworth Tap and Die sets

While I've found some sets available from eBay sellers with good feedback most seem designed for British motorcycles.
Has anyone found a good quality set that includes the sizes needed for non-metric Series vehicles?

Yes; gearbox and t-case. Not sure about engine.
I guess I could just figure out which ones I need for them and order from British Fasteners.

The only ones I've not been able to get an SAE equivalent on are the real small ones like they use to hold the defrost vents on the bulkhead. All the others you can undo with regular wrenches.

I have a universal Whitworth wrench that I keep in my tool kit. It says "Crescent" on the side.
