I wouldn't buy cheap (quality) tools, costs more in long run...

Surely this would depend on the amount you would use them? I hate the snobbery that goes with these forums lately. If you only used them once in a blue moon they would be perfect.

Its not snobbery its fact of life.. Cheap tools will cost you twice in the long run...

cheap tools break regularly, also damage the thing you are working on, and you need to replace the broken item... ask any tradesman.. cheap tools are mugs

Instead of cheap tools my parner bought nothing.

One day her washing machine broke down so she rang the local company to get an engineer out. They quoted £40 to come and look plus £40 an hour and spares.

In the end she bought me a screwdriver and a pair of pliers for a tad over a fiver and I took the back off, pulled the clip from one of the pipes and removed what looked like a hair grip from the pump. Machine fixed.

In this case cheap tools saved £75.

Yes, I would love Snap On, but when you need a tool, if it works, which they mostly will, then it matters little. I have thrown away plenty of spanners where I have splayed the jaws.

I'm an electrician and don't buy cheap tools. These are fine for diy around the house jobs. Whats the point in spending 100's on something you'll rarely use?

If you use the tools in question once or twice a year, why spend £100s on trademan quality tools that are meant to be used daily and last years, when you can spends £10s on tools that may only last 100 uses - or 50 years?

There's cheap crap, there's good enough, and there's professional quality. Good enough is, well, good enough.

Cant belive the amount of posts about a set of tools..............WoW great price for whot you get and of course it's at a "AffordablePrice".
whole reason its on here i surpose (:
