I wanted a set for my foldable workbench (there's space to store it). Was originally going to get some irwin £20 ones each but wasn't sure if I'd use it enough to justify the £40++ (need minimum 2?).

Found some of these at the weekend. Seems quite chunky and manly tool; so I bought the smaller sets because I'm a wuss (it has 4 PC's) :D.

I'll give this a go and if I need the bigger set I'll get proper branded one. At £6.99 for 2 big PC's or 4 smaller ones are pretty good value..

Some other pliers and 'professional hammers' looks alright too but I have some already

Not bad for 2. Not bad at all! Always handy to have around.
I bought both sets, seem ok for the money, Hammers looked decent, and the ratchet extenders, handy for getting into places yer hand wont fit.

Small ones are surprisingly sturdy. Mainly for me to hold manly metal work while I cut it free hand with a circular saw of course...
Need to pop in and get a set for my maplin work bench too

There's one at Lidl also for £15. It's height adjustable one so slightly better than the cheapo ones.

Maybe you can ghetto it so it looks like this:

Thanks OP these are good both long and short ones
Had some of these for a while, they're good but bear in mind you can't get them anywhere near as tight as traditional threaded ones so more for holding together than deathgrip.

Agreed and you cant get them as tight as the quick grip style either - these are ok for holding things while you bang a few screws in but for cutting and gluing I go for threaded or quick grip.

I had a few quick grip ones from lidl and they lasted years - haven't seen them selling them since this type came out.
