Is 'Phaze' a Halford's branding or is it a third-party manufacturer? If these tools are up to the standard of Halford's branded tools then this is a decent bargain.
If you look properly at the tools, you can see they are the generic crappy stuff sold everywhere.

I would find it difficult to advise anyone to buy this stuff, even at this price.

I don't think I'd agree: the tools would be no good to a professional mechanic, but absolutely fine to keep in the house, garage or shed for the average person. It would be much safer to use these tools than it would a kitchen knife and a pair of pliers as I have often seen people do.

I would not have paid £40, but £15 is very cheap for a useful bag of tools, I'd recommend that all households have something like this and keep it in the drawer with the plasters, torch, candles, spare fuses and first aid kit. Heat added.

Well if someone is going to use a kitchen knife in place of a tool, then they deserve all they get and Darwinism will help the human race a little.

Funny you talk about safety, especially if you use the socket set, spanners or screwdrivers, as you are likely to hurt yourself when they break, as they will, probably when you are exercising the maximum force on them.

The spanners won't fit, the adjustable spanner will only be good as a plumb bob or a knuckle skinner, with more play on it than a football field, I suspect the pliers will be rough and again will break when maximum force is applied.

I'm not just making this up, I've had these exact tools, in my grimy little hands, I've had them break on me. Do what you like, but these are the same tools that are sold in poundland etc and they will hurt you.

We'll have to agree to disagree. I have a garage full of fairly expensive tools that I use to maintain various cars, motorbikes, jetskis, pushbikes, air guns &c, but I still have several similar kits to this one for occasional use around my houses or kept in the boot of older cars. The quality is about the same on all the cheaper tools, but they are pretty useful and nowhere near as dangerous as you suggest. Generally they don't fail catastrophically but things like the ratchets stop working after a while.

I have seen plenty of people attempting jobs on their houses, cars or bikes with kitchen knives, Leatherman knives, sellotape and similar (I'm a surveyor, I do some electrical work as well), often they have ended up hurting themselves or further damaging whatever they are attempting to repair. I really couldn't recommend that the average house or car driver spends £600 on a good set of professional tools, but something like this would be sensible and perfectly safe if used sensibly.
No one is suggesting professional spec tools, there is a wide available quality of tools available. Go and buy some Halfords own brand tools if you want something cheap and cheerful that will do the job you expect them to and you know they will not break, nor break down when you want to use them.
No 13mm spanner? That's a bit odd - it's the most common size by far.

I'd tend to agree with othen. I too have thousands of pounds worth of good tools, but would use stuff like this at a push. One policy says you should buy a cheap set of tools, then replace whatever breaks with good stuff. If it breaks, you obviously use it, so it's worth having something better. But other stuff will never get used, so why spend good money on it?

So if you don't have any tools, but this and get a decent 13mm combination spanner to go with it.

I used to think that, when I was young, thing is, you tend to forget that these will just not take any abuse, if you apply a large force to the sockets, either they or the ratchet will break and the first time you have a socket split when you are applying a force to unlock a rusty net, you won't forget it.
So, ok, maybe flatpack furniture I'd agree with, everything else, no.

Oh, the screwdrivers will break, even with flatpack furniture.
doge 62 great idea re cheap and reuse
I cannot afford to buy cheap tools.
The cost of driving back to the shops and making repeat purchases is too high.

Well, a Halfords tool kit like this is £200:

It is, of course, much more competent than the £15 set, but would the average home owner be willing to pay 13 times as much? Ich glaube nicht.

I've had a cheap spanner snap in my hand when removing a brake calliper. It hurt a lot. I know have better spanners that don't snap.

If you're advanced enough to be removing brake calipers, you definitely want better tools than these. However if you occasionally want to adjust a child's bicycle seat, or open the battery compartment on some device, then these will probably do you.

That's the set you'd pick as a replacement? Heh, good joke.

If you need tools, buy a Halfords screwdriver set and a separate socket set relevant to what you want to use it for. ie for small nuts and bolts which require little pressure to undo, a 3/8 or 1/4 drive will be fine. For larger stuff, 1/2 is the way to go.
I find a little screwdriver kit with interchangeable bits invaluable for everyday indoor stuff that needs little power to use. Don't buy the really cheap ones, I've got this one amazon.co.uk/Dra…8HA and it's been ok for several years. I do have a better one, but this one seems to take everything I throw at it.

I don't know why I'm bothering, I'm either preaching to the converted, or annoying those who just want the cheapest crap they can get.

Yep, been there (_;) several times. I'm just trying to help other people, who haven't. But I suspect this might be one of those learning things you have to do yourself.

​Yeah that's my thinking, I'm not taking my decent tools in the car, cost too much to be leaving in the car
Got these at Christmas as a gift. As most are suggesting, no, they're not professional quality nor will they see the course of the build or repair of a classic car...However, as a quick fix around the house to tighten a loose tap or fix a broken something else they do the job. What do you expect for £40 tools let alone £15 tools...

I think this thread is more or less at an end now, but the comment above might be a bit misleading to the average person thinking of getting a few tools to use around the house or car. I used a set almost exactly like this one to carry out a complete top end rebuild on a Yamaha jet-ski, it was what I had available at our holiday house at the time but proved to be perfectly adequate (the only tool I had to fetch from home was a torque wrench to put it back together after the cylinders had been re-bored). Suggesting the kit is only good for opening a battery compartment is just plain misleading; with some common sense it could be used for nearly all the jobs an average person would find around the house, car or bike (certainly including changing brake calipers, it would be perfectly capable of that job as long as one had a jack and some axle stands).

A small tool set like this could save the average house/car owner a fortune in garage and call out charges (to fix leaky taps, white goods &c). This is a particularly good price (at £40 one could have found the same quality cheaper on Fleabay, but at £15 it would not be worth looking elsewhere). I may even buy a set today to keep in the boot of a car, and so supplement the wholly inadequate kit provided by the manufacturer.

For 15 quid, this looks decent. It's about time I bought a tool kit. Good price for the average novice. Thanks OP

When I went to pick this up, they were still labelled up as £19.99 at the front of the store. But as I had reserved I had to go to the parts section to collect and was charged £15.

Each item inside is wrapped with plastic foam, so once you take all that off you have enough space to store additional tools if need be. Although if you are keeping it in the car and don't want additional rattles then maybe keep it on!
Not voting hot, not voting cold .I bought this kit at £19 last week but as soon as I got it home and saw and felt the very, very poor quality of the tools I decided to get a refund.

In my opinion, it's better to buy a tool bag and build up decent set of tools over time. Start with a hammer, an adjustable spanner and ratchet screwdriver with bits. The reason I say this is because cheap tools like those found in this Halfords set tend to break really quickly and easily.

Also, the largest socket supplied with this set is only 13mm which I don't think is big enough for the wheel nut on my daughter's bike.
