Heat from me, ordered, thanks

Edited by: "marty-401" 22nd Oct

I bought 3 sets yesterday really good sets

Unfortunately probably not Chrome Vanadium steel, so not worth buying IMO

Yep, no lifetime warranty on this set... saw these instore the other day when I was picking up my screwdrivers. Didn't look like anything special, even at this price.

Heat for posting OP but I'll give this one a miss

Thanks OP I bought this set but in a different style of case, the ratchet on its own was priced at £9 odd so I was pleased to pay a tenner for the whole set. That was 5 cars and 21 YEARS ago, still as good as new, except I have lost one of the very small sockets. So if anyone has doubts about quality !!!

I bought my socket set from Halfords in 1982 and it is still going strong. It is not Chrome Vanadium steel. For moderate use on less demanding jobs cheap tools can be OK.

It says Chrome Vanadium sockets on the packaging photo.

Not bad but not as good as the "advanced range"....ok for carrying the car,tbh 1/4 drive is pretty useless....a few weeks ago I picked up the 1/4....3/8...and1/2 sets for a ridiculous £12.50 each in a flash sale Halfords had rrp for all 3 was around £200 not that I need any more socket sets.

You can order individual sockets from Halfords, so you could complete your set.

Ordered thanks for posting just what I needed !

Yes, it does. I chatted with them for some time asked them if it was chrome vanadium and they said they didn`t know! Annoying!

I have a set similar to this I bought 20 years ago. Still in great condition. I’ll be having one of these. Thanks op.

Agree with you on this one.

4mm to 13 mm sockets so no good for wheel nuts.

Do I need a set, no. Have I ordered a set, yes. Its still a good buy. For some reason they are not available til after 4 pm on Tuesday for collection.

Thanks for that.

Why not pay extra 9 quid and buy decent bahco set?

I bought a set similar (or the same as this) in a different case from Halfords for about £15 around 10 - 15 years ago and it's still going strong (but the case hinges have bust and it's now being held with tape). Great strong set!

That's because they don't have any stock in your store and are ordering you a set in...they usually call you when it's there to collect...sometimes earlier than the quoted collection time.

Yeah..Bahco are great quality.... 6 sided sockets as well for better grip.

Didn't expect to be so small. Mini set..great tough!

1/4 is about the only size socket set I'm a bit short on and as many have said not always used but can come in handy and we'll worth £9 ordered thanks op

Just tell it like you feel,good luck,Ivar

This socket set is a bargain....as long as it is not Chinese Tat !!!

bought one of these 20 years ago broke the ratchet but that was my fault.replaced the ratchet and still got the set sockets perfect.

All of the advanced socket sets are half price as well. I have had the 150 piece set (Currently £125) for at least 5 years. It has been given some abuse over those years and still spot on. This is a good wee set for working on bikes etc. Can't go wrong at £9.

I had the advanced range. Used it the first time socket was stuck on handle. Returned was offered the option of a refund only. Was told they no longer carry the Advanced range its being phased out in the next month. A new range is expected in a month assume this is for the xmas period. I was told they are winding down their stock of socket sets.

Seems like a good price from a good retailer, I had my money back in under 1 minute!

Yes, someone else has already pointed that out

Frownbreaker post socket stuck on the handle.
Did you realize the advance range has a button you have to press to release the sockets?

Thanks op. Ideal for bunging in the boot of the car.

Thanks just what I needed well timed

Already got a full socket set from halfords, but here I am, buying another one to leave in the car. Good deal OP, thanks.
