bye bye, decent quality, good for DIY but perhaps not for a expert engineer such as yourself.

how come? I'm a women and even I can tell that they are just nasty waste of time ''tools''
Not long time ago halfords advanced screwdrivers were on offer for like 6pounds for set of 7 or 8..
Here you are just buying Poundland quality ''tools''.

Halfords advanced aren't much better. If you want quality you buy Wera, Wiha, Facom etc.

Nothing wrong with these for the odd job around the house.

Will be fine for the odd job. Don't get me wrong, my main toolkit has wera and bahco, but I'm after something to leave at the caravan for emergencies and I'm not willing to spend wera money on them.

Yes they do. A typical definition of an engineer is "A person who designs, builds, or maintains engines, machines, or structures" Try do most of that without a screwdriver.

Seriously? So even though you are a woman, you understand mechanical things. Who would have thought that possible?
By the way how many "women" are you?

Better off going with Lidl Powerfix screwdrivers. Much better quality and £3.99 for a pack of 8.

Nonsense. Depends what you're engineering.

No they don't. (Although they usually can.) That might be a typical definition but that doesn't mean it's correct. A far better definition is:
Engineers design materials, structures, and systems while considering the limitations imposed by practicality, regulation, safety, and cost. The word engineer (from the Latin ingeniator) is derived from the Latin words ingeniare ("to contrive, devise") and ingenium ("cleverness"). The foundation education of an engineer is typically a 4-year bachelor's degree or in some countries, a master's degree in an engineering discipline plus 4–6 years peer-reviewed professional practice culminating in a project report or thesis.

The work of engineers forms the link between scientific discoveries and their subsequent applications to human and business needs and quality of life.

Where did you copy and paste that from I wonder.

What about time served mechanical, aircraft and electrical engineers etc.

Not all engineers start life at uni and progress into a nice clean office. There are professional engineers who get their hands dirty.

I have a choice of believing your personal definition or the definition of the five online and printed dictionaries that I checked.
en.oxforddictionaries.com/definition/engineer
dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/engineer
dictionary.com/browse/engineer
collinsdictionary.com/dictionary/english/engineer
merriam-webster.com/dictionary/engineer
So these dictionaries and I all disagree with your personal restricted definition of an engineer. As do all service engineers, the Institute of Mechanical Engineering and many more.
So we all say, yes they do.

they're screwdrivers, all people need screwdrivers every so often, whether or not for engineers?! I think everyone here knows what a screwdriver is so let's cut the ****

I didn't say it was my definition, just something I quickly found that is a better definition of what an engineer actually is. (From wikipedia if anybody is that bothered)
There is a general habit in the UK of calling both engineers, and all those who work in the field, e.g. engineering technicians, as engineers which doesn't really help.

I also think you'll find the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (which is what I presume you were referring to) would not agree with you.
