Anyone have a line on a good metric thread repair kit?

This one seems to be a good deal, but its 2/3rds SAE which I have, at present, no need for. Not saying I won't buy an old truck at some point, but if you all have a good source for an all metric kit, let me know.

EDIT - sometimes you just need to know what to search for. "metric thread restorer" brought this kit up. Made in USA, seems like a deal.

Looks like a decent set. I bought a kit from Sears years ago and had the chaser shear off (without much force!) in one of the flywheel bolt holes, took a lot of work to get it out. I wonder if they had other problems with that kit as it doesn't look like they sell it anymore.
