Cheers edi, not bad for a tenner. Tools are only basic quality but still worth £10 I'd reckon (and the case is handy as it stops you losing them!).

going out to get this today thansk for this edi great spot!

i bout this tool kit previously and it is very useful for the car and home.

Would recommend :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

by the way VOTED HOT

yeah i bought this for 9.99 last time round and find it ok for little jobs round the house.

But i got the hideous orange coloured set not the blue in the pic above,
You don't get a choice.

Just reserved a set online. Fantastic value. Many thanks to Contributor- edi.

I never can resist a cheap tool set, so have just reserved one to pick up from Hereford when am down there tomorrow... thanks edi.

Voted HOT also!

They call it 'Challenge' because doing a job with these tools without them bending or breaking is certainly a challenge!

is that from own experience or a joke?

As Edi said - I also got this before & the quality is good. Some people want £100 quality for £10 - it isn't, but I'd say it is good value at the normal £20!

I've picked this up for a fiver aaaages ago, may have been from woolies, not sure, but after a few month I ended up binning it, not even worth a fiver let alone a tenner I'm afraid.

I'm sure I'm going to get flamed for thi, but voted cold.

well they do say "you get what you pay for"
i got it for a tenner so if a get a tenner's worth out of it i'll be happy,

neilmonk, what did you expect for a fiver?

Picked mine up this morning.Even though it was Reserved I had a little difficulty in buying it. As far as VALUE is concerned, some people are never satisfied.All those tools for 2X20 Gigs!!.Rest my case. Thanks to Contributor of the offer.

I think you may have invented the disposable toolkit

Also, sorry for all the quips but I'm at work, bored and have absolutely nothing helpful to contribute :giggle:

Picked mine up this afternoon.

Whereas the pictures on Page 1 of this thread show a grey box with blue handles to some of the tools etc, mine was in a black box with orange tool handles. Quite smart I reckon, and I am certainly not going to complain at £9.99

Just as long as no one expects to be able to build a house with it!

[SIZE=2]Thanks OP :). Voted hot - yery, very, very tempted :p.[/SIZE]

Thank You... that's the one! :thumbsup:

i got the orange one too, for a tenner its fine, not the best quality, but for the money and all the items its a greta deal!

I've been using this very set for 5 years for general household duties - the only complaint is that I was a bit too hard on the multi-bit ratchet driver and did manage to damage it so it doesn't hold bits very well. This was my fault, I should have used a proper wrench.

It's certailnly all you'll need for assembling flat-pack furniture or some basic maintenance.
