Good set, I have the smaller version of this and it's taken lots of abuse!
I have this, great set but struggling to find use for it, always reaching out for 3/8 or 1/2 if working on car, great build quality

I have a 3/8 for bigger jobs, I got the more compact version of this set which is small enough to always be in my tool bag and does almost everything on my motorbike.
Great ratchet if you have ...

Can anybody recommend an affordable set of wrenches/socket sets? Something similar to halford professional stuff but more affordable? For occasional diy and changing basic parts on my car?

Generally speaking the Bahco sets are pretty good. In 3/8" size, the Bahco S330 set covers the essentials. In 1/2", the S240 set is a good starter kit. These and the SL25 (1/4" size as the one in this deal) have served me well for years.

I also have some Wera and Facom wrenches, but frankly the Bahco line is very good, and great value in the UK.
Has anyone used Wera hex keys? I've decided to try and maintain my bike and try to keep the kids running and have had problems with cheap hex/allen keys that didn't fit tight, rounding off the bolts.

As much as I prefer to keep things cheap, I'd rather not have to struggle removing stripped bolts just to save a fiver.

These seem to be the cheapest Wera Hex Plus sets I can find. Worth the extra or should I just go for something like these?

I have a set of Wera coloured hex keys and they are solid, a little expensive but they should last years. Had mine for about 3 years now with occasional use and still like new, they are made out of good solid material. I also have the Wera socket and screwdriver set and the full screwdriver set in a case. Everything is there, no need to worry about any other day to day use tools.

Did you find any difference using the Wera hex keys? Did they fit any better than what you were using before? If they were the "Hex plus", did you find you could apply more torque without damaging the bolt or is that really only for more heavy duty work?

Getting some of these corroded bolts out has proven tricky! I've tried everything I've seen online, penetrating fluid over night, losen, tighten, losen tighten etc. I've even tried heating up with a blow torch as the steel and aluminum expand at different rates, apparently (makes a change from my hair drier/straighteners!). But I think a decent set of hex keys would be a good addition for the one's that aren't in super tight

The thing I like about the wera set is the fact that it has different ends, one side is flat hex and the otherside is rounded which i have found really helps when you are reaching in to weird angles. Strength wise I havent tested really stubborn bolts but ai am sure they would be good.

2 year warranty vs lifetime?


Better to go for Halfords advanced to make it equal.

I bought this. Its a decent set. Not as many pieces as the halfords set. But nice quality. I've been slowly adding to my set over the past year.
Thanks op, got the slightly different Bahco set for £19.80 from the same seller and realised I had a £10 off £20 code in my ebay account for using their app. So worth checking your account. So including a Dewalt drill bit to make up the cost it came to less than £11. I also noticed if you buy more than 1 item from this seller it applies a discount. 4% for my 2 items.
Hope this helps someone Madcow

Get Bondhus, Lifetime guarantee and pretty much indestrucatble. They do a bike specific one (fold away jobby) I have one I keep on me when riding.

No, but it does a MTB 99%, depends what you want to use it for. I have the bonhus set you linked, a chromed set and a fine tolerance set 41040226-7WaIF.jpg

Late reply I know but I wanted to add my 2 pence.

The Wera hex plus are without doubt the best allen keys ive ever used. The "hex plus" shape reduces the chances of rounding quite alot which means they will remove screws other allen keys simply can't. It's not a gimmick, it really works!

I can't recommend them enough. Forget the colour coded ones though. The rubberised coating just becomes an annoyance. Get the uncoated ones.

I don't work for Wera in case you're wondering. But I do sell tools for a living and ive tried probably all of the brands at some time.

Thanks - too late, I already bought the Bondhus ones I linked for just under a tenner. The Wera did look good, but £17 was a tad steep and the Bondhus do have good reviews. Oh well!
Need a socket set for odd things around the house and fixing up the kids bike. Anybody recommend anything else as this offer has ended?
