If that tool is anything like the Lisle tool I have (they both look identical- like the same photo! Photo below is from a Lisle ad), be sure to dress the ends of the threads where the flutes cut across them (arrows below) if there's any raggedness to them. Hopefully the tool you get doesn't need anything, but do check it first.
