voted hot for price but wouldnt advise you use cheap tools. The spanners especially snap with enough force and can hurt you in the process.

I'm with holding my vote until someone finds at least one in stock somewhere

None near me. I have a challenge toolkit and have used it for hundreds of jobs in my current and previous property without any problems. Probably not ideal for a professional workman or keen handyman but just fine for most people's home jobs.

none near me!!

Sort of thing you find at the Market stall!

wow found one at last!! lol about 200 mile away might be handy for someone its at Truro Treliske Retail Park

at Otley Only 1 left to collect

none near me

It's just cheap rubbish tbh

These sets are not up to much. For a reasonable price if you get down to the local trade iron mongers you can pick up some deals usually, and the price may not be set in stone either, unlike argos. Stay away from Jewsons etc, they sell tat too.

BUT

To sit under the stairs to fix the kids bike wheels etc with the sockets are a plus, and anything not requiring much leverage. On the plus side.

The extreme range is supposed to be better than the Challange range-that may be so for the powered tools but I am not sure for non powered tools. I have a shed load of challenge tools awaiting disposal!

LOL I won one of these sets as a prize about 5 years ago, and its true what the other replies are saying. Most of the peices are made from soft metal or summit coz if you try to use the screwdriver or spanner to loosen somethin tight then sure as kack it wont work; the screwdriver tip will bend and become useless and the spanner edges with just scrape away against the hard edges of the nut or bolt.

I dont know what material they have used in moulding these tools but its like some really soft putty or clay lol....

My "Mechanics" tool kit has been pretty much useless, some of the tools are broken and buckled and had to be thrown away.

I wouldnt even contemplate using these tools to do any real car mechanic work.

Edit : the previous reply is spot on. If you want some robust tools that do the job right then get them from the iron mongers.

who uses imperial sockets today anyway? we have been metric on cars since the seventies.
(most of the sockets in this kit are imperial)

And how much would an equivalent "Snap-on" set cost? I guarantee it will be in the hundreds.

Whats that got to do with anything it says mechanics tool kit i said No mechanic would ever buy these,Reason they are cheap rubbish.And the £49-99p original price is a joke.I doubt they have ever been sold at that price.
