Heat for the tags ..... not the socket set which will probably break!

Probably not national. Will probably break.

candle lit lunch with a bit of DIY thrown in, nice.

Hope she was good?

For £1.25 even if it is crap it'll do a couple of jobs.

Bargain.

Heat added, okay its not Snap-On but for the price you can't go wrong, this kit looks better than the one I used to change a radiator on a ford focus during the winter.

Any idea what the largest socket size included is?

If your cheap crappy tools end up rounding off the bolt heads you can.
No idea how good these ones are, and at £1.25 I'd be tempted to take a chance, but sometimes you can cut a corner too far....

useful to have in the car as an emergency set. just be careful and take care undoing possibly seized bolts.

FYI these ratchets will break very quickly if used regularly. they are terrible

Just make them break within a reasonable time and get them replaced, eventually Tesco will have different brand, push for those instead of a refund.

Using these will give you herpes because they are not £100,000,0000 and made from dodo beaks etc...

Nice find, perfect for the odd job.

13mm

Remember to push the ratchet with the palm of your hand it will save your knuckles when it breaks !!

pasty, strawberries and red bull for dinner!!??

got 15 sets to sell to the mugs at the booty on weekend

Bought this set a few weeks ago and used it the same day to try and remove the back box exhaust on my astra. Suffice to say the bolt heads ended up rounded off and I ended up having to pay a garage to melt them out. The ratchet lock also broke - It looked sturdy enough but once it broke you could see that it isn't all metal, the lock inside is plastic.

Waste of £1.25

your going to need to pack up fast after selling them incase some nutter comes back with skint knuckles due to a slipping cheap ratchet oO

got one of these, good for the odd job around the house.

Anyone ventured out and found these in another store.

Op do you have an SKU I can have to ask my store if they have them?

Didn't think you were allowed to sell new goods, or have the rules changed?

Bought this for 50p on a Tesco clearance a couple of years back.It's fine for the odd job.
Just don't use it on anything too strenuous.

where do I find the SKU!!!?

good for the money, but I wouldn't use it for working on old cars with rusty bolts as "finnrogers" found out

Comes to something when the socket set is cheaper than the pasty on the receipt eh?

i could be wrong but I thought it would be on the receipt - a unique item number. it might be asda's that do that though

bargain at 1.25£
but obviously for anyone who would use socketry a lot would not buy it. people obviously forget that tesco is a domestic store. any proffessional would not purchase this, but its bang on for light diy use.

I BROUGHT THIS IN MY LOCAL TESCO FOR 75P......RATCHET BROKE THE SAME DAY .
