what are people thinking about this set? Maybee compared to the Halfords kit. I have a Halfords set i find most of the components ok ratchets great spanners a wee bit springy and the sockets could do with being machined further to the tip because if your in the end of a tricky fastening it easily cams off.
I see these are made in China so concerned about quality but they do look like tough 6 faced sockets.

Got an old Halfords which is great, a minor criticism would be the ratchets which don't have many teeth so working in a confined area can be a pain. Hopefully this will help someone who's on the lookout for a decent set.

Historic info I'll admit, but I've a number of Hilka Socket sets which are probably 40 years old - never had a problem with them - so if they're still making their stuff to the same quality then you'll be OK

I have one of these sets and they are fantastic value for money. The ratchet is 72 teeth so perfect in tight spaces and contains a great assortment of items suitable for all auto mechanic needs. Would recommend.
