Thanks - updated the posting to include the eBay option. I get free delivery from DT so I missed that.

There's also the in-store option if you are near Wrexham.

£120 off is still £120 off

Nothing like the Halfords set in my opinion - cold from me

I'm not sure what that means? There's not as many pieces in it but the quality of the tools are better. I've had 3 items from my Halfords set fail in the last year - that won't happen with Beta. Similar quality to Teng, Facom, Snap-On etc Beta is tools that guys who assemble high-end, bespoke manufacturing equipment use (£1m+). With respect, you won't see Halfords tools in those environments.

Please vote cold if you think that better than half price is a poor deal or if you've had poor experiences with Beta tools.

Are you buying one of these yourself and selling your Halfords set (which also has lifetime Warranty)?

I beg to differ Halfords tools are used by many thousands of professional users in the UK who depend on their tools to make a living.

Yup - ordered (despite having at least enough tools already). I would buy the Beta one over the Halfords one in an instant. There's a "better" offer on a Sealey tool set (about £250 off incl VAT) but I don't rate Sealey at all.

All the quality brands (Facom, Snap-On, Beta etc) stuff that I've bought I still have and I can rely on them totally. I've never had a single tool fail on me - some after 25 years of use. Sure Halfords have a lifetime warranty but it's better not to have the failure in the first place. There's the rub.

My point is this. It's not that Halfords Pro is bad because it's not, it's good - just that Beta are better. And I'm sure many professional users use Halfords - you just won't find many £million+ machine builders using Halfords. This is a great price for one of the very best brands - I don't honestly see why it's had cold votes. On the other hand Halfords deals get voted hot but, a bit like DFS sofas, who ever paid the full £199 for the Halfords set? Wait a couple of weeks and they'll be £89/£99 again.

Cracking deal, can't believe it's being compared to Halfords, this is Beta we're talking about..... Worlds apart, but then Beta is for the discerning user not just weekend warrior. Made by Beta, sold by Beta retailers and backed up by their lifetime warranty. It's hot for me.

Yup - turned up today - very very nice. Lots of subtle details that would be lost on most people. I was expecting it to be good but it's better than that.

Obviously wasted on your average HUKD user....

What a load of tosh!
