Halfords 235 bit tool kit with chest £49.99

235 bit tool kit, with socket sets, spanners, hex keys and lot of screw driver bits.

Not going to be snap-on quality but for 50 quid including a tool box, it can't be sniffed at.

Ideal for a starter set, or - like me- just moved out and can't borrow his dad's tool anymore

Fantastic deal. Halfords stuff is more than enough for the home mechanic in most cases! :)

It's not halfords quality. It's 'Dynamics'. It is RUBBISH! You'll need to replace the ratchet straight away, and before you say the sockets are good I had a socket shear on me just undoing a wheel nut! It snapped straight down the middle! When the ratchet /sockets break you'll take chunks off your hand. Also all the screw driver bits are very weak metal and will go rusty quickly as will the screw drivers themselves. The spanners are ok though. That's my experience having used one. I'd save up and get this... it's a little more, but will be far more robust.

Having said that if you want the best get Halfords Professional!

For occasional use / light work.... OK

For anything more stubborn (changing brake pads, wheels, and anything involving stubborn nuts / bolts) I would avoid.

Think of it this way, A lot of the stuff in here you may never use. Get a decent toolbox and slowly fill up with the Halfords pro range, or pick up the smaller kits in line with your needs when they are on special offer (regularly!) ...

Not voting either way, as Ive had a flimsy toolbox fall apart whilst carrying across a road (followed by 2hrs of tool / socket hunting :( )

i have a cantilever box full of my snap-on gear from my garage days, which i still use for servicing / repairing my cars. this box with the bits and bobs might be ideal as the cantilever maybe portable but definitely is no good for keeping your tools accessible & tidy!

I got this set for a similar price last summer. I was fed up having to borrow tools for occasional use. It is not the most robust set in the world but I don't need it to be so it fits my purpose. Recommended for occasional use & light work..

I agree with the ratchet. mine broke when trying to take off a stubborn bolt. DaveC81 hit the nail on the head, just save your money and get better stuff.

I got mine for £40 not that long ago from Halfords, they try to sell this at £99.99.

+1 on the rachet, even for light work it (they both) suck!

Screw drivers are cheap. The bits you get are often duplicated--- I have 6 of the same hex bit! I know having 2 of the same is handy, but you don't even get 2 handles for them.

The rubber grip on the handle slides around the body too.

Pliers are all **** thin handle ones, and blunt.

Precision drivers are the cheap small ones you get from a pound shop.

I got it mainly for the case, with view to upgrade specific groups as they break.

Had a look at this at Xmas for my son, reserved it.

Save your money honest its rubbish, some of the sockets are too small for most use anyway.
This item appears every month as a deal.

£50 wasted, go for quality in tools and they will last a lifetime.

I found the sockets are up to reasonably heavy duty and it comes with deep ones as well as a wide range of sizes.

The ratchets are absolute junk - mine broke under light use within a week. However, took them back to Halfords and they swapped them for ones from their professional range. :D Trick is probably to find a young, inexperienced assistant (shouldn't be a problem in most stores!).

Screwdrivers aren't much use for anything strenuous either - cheap/weak metal tips that will soon twist and chip under even normal use.

The case itself is ok quality, had mine for a few years now and still going strong.

Dreaddful set, catastrophically bad reviews, false economy, borderline dangerous.
Hot, of course.

Saying that, i recently snapped a snap-on socket on one of my wheel nuts. It was on so tight, it just split.

I haven't used it yet, but its always useful to have spare tools, and i got this with the view to upgrade/ replace as i go on
