its made by Sykes Pickavent or so im told, lifetime warranty on all but the moving parts of the ratchets and they should last a lifetime if not abused!

If I remember rightly it was this set

halfords.com/web…572

that was £99.99 until Christmas. It has more pieces than the one you have pointed out though some of them are probably screwdriver bits worth next to nothing. I was waiting for everything to have 10% off Christmas Day or Boxing day as they normally do but they put the price back to £199.99. It comes down sub £100 quite often though.

I got one of these when they dropped to £99.99. Did a few jobs and MoT with it since and very pleased with it.

you are right it was, sorry, it was certainly not my intention to mislead.

I just ordered another set of what I posted for the car and find halfords also take paypal aswell which was a bit of a bonus as I had some money laying in my paypal account

I have the 150 piece Halfords Professional set and it's very good. I find the sockets are quite shallow but it's only a problem in a few situations. I note the 150 piece is £199 but they often have that at half-price which I think would be better value than this one, so if you're not in a hurry it might be worth waiting to see if it's on offer in the next sale.

correct !!
had an accident with my half inch drive ratchet (thought it would be ok to hit it with a hammer)
Halfords said the ratchet mechanism is not covered :oops:

LOL, it look like its only about £4 for a repair kit looking at the site.

Are you sure they are made by Sykes?

They are not made by SP. They are sourced from the far east.

Get good write ups in the motoring press for quality. The ratchets are not lifetime covered but repair kits are available just like all the major tool suppliers. The pricing is dodgy though, they go up to come down in the sale.

its just what i'd read and heard.

I bought the 150 piece socket set today using the trade card. In store price was £199.99, price with trade card was £97.49. Its a quality bit of kit and a bargain at that price. The 120 piece kit is great value at £89.99

Bought mine today for the farm after 15 years with a similar Halford set at home. Very pleased with it.
