Many people will vote this cold as the name is not that well known (apart from in the trade) - quality is excellent.


]yet another DIFFERENT link to this

britool are great quality

Excellent :thumbsup:

I used to work in the motor trade, and Britool was a great brand, not too far away from Snap-on.

Excellent deal, britool is good stuff that will last you years.

I have a britool socket set hexagonal drive over 40 years old works as good as the day it was bought even though my grand father bought it and i've given the set plenty of abuse over the years, its one of my best bits of kit i own voted hot for this price :thumbsup:

Excellent quality, great useful little set. Hot.

Any free delivery codes? Coming up as £5 delivery for me.

ordered! my mate has a garage and uses these tool regularly. i have always wanted a set but didnt fancy paying full price.... £26.11 is a great price for this set, quality confirmed!

Now part of the Stanley group.

Anyone know the length of the ratchet? Doesnt look like you could get much leverage on it, important for us weaklings :thumbsup:

I've ordered one :thumbsup:- Britool is one of the best, the tools will last a lifetime, at least they did.:whistling:
I just (really) hope they have not sold out the name to put on far east tools.......

HOT from me - thanks

I'm tempted but:

I know the name and understand that the quality has been good in the past but can anyone confirm that it has been maintained in these newer sets under new ownership or do they just trade on past reputation? Is this a set of their normal quality or a 'special' made up to discount like this?

I'm a bit wary because this has happened with so many great brands over the years. Someone buys a struggling company and milks the name for all it's worth over a few years before the consumer catches on. Names like Karrimor, Wharfedale, Rover, and lots more come to mind.

Pretty small sockets too - largest is 14mm so you're not going to rebuild your motor with this one.

Largest socket is only 14mm so a longer lever would not be a good idea.

Ah good spot, thought it was a 3/8 set. Ta.

Stanley own

Britool
Facom
Bostitch
Mac Tools
Proto
Virax

and now Black and Decker

All great tools in my experience

Shame that ¼" drive is only good for hobby/girl stuff, Real Men use ½" and bigger!

Still a good price for excellent tools if you're needing smaller sockets

just been to my local screwfix trade counter, none in stock but ordered 2 got to pick up tomorow, its £5 extra if you want it delivered:thumbsup:
just had a phone call none at warehouse so none 4 me

For people who use screwfix a lot (like me) you can make up your order to £50 (well £51.11)with vouchers and get free delivery. I do this quite regularly but i do buy a lot of diy stuff

none is stock now

Why dont Screwfix say that the offer is only available online? :x

I wouldn't have wasted my time gong to a local branch to purchase a security light thinking I could get get the socket set aswell. Even the bloke at the local branch wasn't aware that it was only available online, he only found out quite a few minutes later after a colleague looked into it.

Typically they didn't have the security light either and the time I got home the socket sets were already sold out. :x

just had an email telling me that my order has been cancelled....typical... :

is this avaliable instore for the same price?

great price but 1/4" is useless in the real world better off spending a £10 on a halfords set, looks nice and will last forever if you dont abuse it. Heat and rep for op.:thumbsup:
