Saw this in Sheffield (Queens Road) B&Q yesterday although it is on the website so I'm sure its nationwide

It's a really nice set. Not sure on the quality. I very nearly bought it except I don't have space for it.

There is a similar set selling in Halfords (on offer) for £45.

I might be going back tonight and will find space at home!

Apparantly made by the same maker but made cheaper than the Halfords one.http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_728767_langId_-1_categoryId_165572



VERY similar in looks but seriously, £25 quid for all that??

Sounds like Blackspur quality.

Good gift for someone (with the case an all) But most of the tools look pretty similar to those that you would find in a £10 toolset with a smaller case?

bought a set today. not bad for £25 as i think the case alone is worth that. only time will tell if it was worth it.

Tempted to get this.

Just ordered one thanks.

Just a note, Im sure this kit isnt the best of quality, but at 25 quid is it really an issue? Just to note the Halfords one was 99 quid and half price when it was posted on HUKD. I almost went for it at that price but glad i didnt as Ive now saved another 25 quid.

Wait until you get a siezed bolt and the ratchet or socket gives way /snaps and you ram your fingers full force into some cold hard metal, then you will learn your lesson (or you might think you did something wrong and try again at a different time on a different bolt until you have no skin on your knuckles left and finally learn your lesson ;) ) and realise this is a false economy.

Or alternatively, strip the head on the socket and the bolt at the same time, and have to either buy some expensive extractors, or drill bits, or give up altogether and get someone else to do it for you.

Either way, cheap tools are bad, with these for anything more than a near loose bolt you might aswell throw chocolate at it.

Good luck :)

I'm sure the quality is pants, but for £25 for occasional use its got to be ok....

Bit extreme.

Not at all. He is spot on. The cheapest tools u should buy if you going to actually use them are the halfords pro range. Great value for good quality.
