Tesco have reduced a lot of their DIY equipment in store. I've just bought a 51 piece screwdriver set (when can you ever have too many, they always go missing!) for the fine sum of £2.39!

It includes numerous shapes and sizes including a telescopic screwdriver/pick up tool. A worthy addition to any toolbox!

They retail for £3.72 on Tesco Direct but are marked as "discontinued" in store at only £2.39.

Well I voted [COLOR="RoyalBlue"]COLD[/COLOR] to counter-counter balance the counter :giggle: :giggle:

No honestly I voted cold because these are not such the bargain they are made out to be - because you only get what you pay for:thinking:

Buying tools this cheap only work when everything is rosie. One problem could be when you tighten up a plug cover the shaft of the screwdriver will break free and twist in the handle making it useless for future use. If you use another screwdriver on a rusty screw outside for example, I can guarantee the head will start to shear again making it useless. I bought a home makers pack when we first moved into the house and used the hammer supplied to remove a tuff nail - the shaft of the hammer bend like hot chocolate. After that I have always paid a little extra and bought a pukka item and it has lasted and I am still using them.

I would say 1. don't buy it for the sake that it is cheap because it will disappoint you or 2. buy it for someone else because it is completely useless and they will never admit it to you, so either way you win:giggle:

thanks for this, this will do me down to the ground, perhaps you do get what you pay for , but for general use in the house, which is what i would use it for will do me, i do not have a lot of strength in my arms so no chance of breaking on me, and also my son is always swiping them and never see them again, and husband will def not let me use his.


will vote hot for you as may help some of us out, ta :thumbsup:

Have a look though, they are dirt cheap but bear in mind you do get what you pay for with tools.

My GF got some today and they look ok for the money, cant fault it really...
#14
Well - still worth the money
#15
Amongst the many silly claims here, one thing that is to be recommended & that is the tip of the screwdriver is "Chrome Vadium". If it's not it just won't last. Some cheap screwdrivers have this & are excellent, obviously the more you pay the better it should be. If this set is "Chrome Vadium" it is Hot if not is is ice cold.
#16
I voted hot, 'cos its a good price. I have to admit, I probably wouldn't buy them because I'm still paying the price of a broken tool being embedded in my bike engine, but for light duty work (opening paint tins etc) they would be fine.
#17
Why anyone would need 51 screwdrivers/bits is a mystery to me! I have one decent multi bit ratchet screwdriver and that does me....... Buy if you have a large space in a cupboard that needs filling.....

Believe me if you lived in my house you would need 51! my oldest DS (21) always borrows them , and they are never seen again, cant believe how manys ets we have bought of past few years, and can never find one when we need one!:thumbsup: Great Deal!! OK maybe they arent the best quality (but they might be OK) but for quick jobs & for DS to loose they are fine!!
#19
Good deal - shame i cannot pick up at store near me ----- they seem to have totally missed out on collection for thr north east! damn you tescos!
#20
a lot of the tesco own branded stuff are reduced to clear.... like bogof on their £1 selections..... and I just bought their workbench for half the price £4.97
#21
These are GOOD for emergencies only. Or as a spare set or for someone starting up home.

I would hope any serious DIY'r would spend more for obvious reasons. For heavier work these could be dangerous. I have even had the handle shear on a cheap screwdriver exposing a bare matal shaft.

Remember that they were only £4 odd before being reduced!

PLUS I notice that they appear to have a telescopic magnet thingie for reaching screws that have fallen to innaccesible places.

Damn....how tight are you. It works out at 4.6p per item as there are 51 items in the set. Even if the whole set spontaneously combusts after its first use it will still be worth it.

Why don't you go and comment on the millions of annoying "Free SIM card" posts that get put on here every 5 minutes.

Thanks for the personal attack which was caused by what? :thinking:

I was only giving a true opinion (which some others have also given) about cheap tools.

I have personal experience of using a cheap screwdriver set which left me with skin ripped from my palm and a shard of hard plastic lodged in my stomach, which resulted in an evening at A&E. All because I applied too much pressure to a screwdriver that looked man enough to handle the job tasked, but was not designed to do.

There IS a price for safety, there is no excuse for you attacking someone.

Now people can decide if your 4.6p per item deal is worth it or not.

Oh by the way, I take it you will be buying a set, as they have been reduced even further in price - :giggle:

shame there is not a lot else worth getting with the £ 5 delivery cost...
#26
They're in store.... :)

Do not buy these screwdrivrs!!

I went through 3 of the flat heads today in 20 mins just tightning some screws.

I wasn't launching a personal attack. I suppose you can't get sarcasm and tone of voice in type but it was meant in a humorous and sarcastic tone.

This set is only worth the money for the pick up tool

Thanks for giving your comments on why you voted cold Crazy1. I think members are happy to debate on opinions and really discussing the value of a deal is what this site is about!
#31
I bought one of these sets a while ago from Homebase, it was dearer than this though.

A few of the screw drivers have snapped, but, as long as you are only going to do home repairs and not expect to erect the Eiffel Tower with them you should be alright.

(Fnarr fnarr I got to say erect on the message board!!!)

I gave a reasonable response as to why I voted cold, I needed had, but I thought I would.

I also explained why I had voted cold with an outline as to why I thought these tools were or were not good value, or as you say, 'discussing the value of a deal'. I said why it was not hot, later I had to explain the injuries I have suffered using cheap tools like these, later posts also attest my facts.

I would not want my mother running out and buying this because she thought it was a pukka set at a good deal/price.

As I said SAFETY has a price (and it's not £2.39) and some of us are trying to use our experience to save other people suffering an injury due to mis-interpretation of a product.

Six hours in A&E is not opinion, and not funny.

That's my last word on this thread. :x moving on.
