This is quite a decent set too. Heat added, the offset ratchet comes in very handy

I have a few of the lidl Parkside branded tools, I use them both at work and if I am carrying out some diy at home. Very well made and kudos to Lidl for stocking such good products

Another great deal from Lidl. 8-)

Heat from me.

Don't actually need these, but very tempted....

You didn't until you saw them
Will be very handy to have
Have some heat

I bought these the last time they were for sale. Very good well worth the money. One of the ball bearings dropped out of one of the sockets but other than that bargain.

It's 1/4", right? Too bad, need inexpensive 1/2". Still a great deal though.

Doesnt seem great value if its 1/4"

The vortex set is £119.99 in halfords

Has a few more parts and lifetime warranty granted, but is over £100 more oO

I was planning on getting one of these sets for general use around the house until I saw the last few comments regarding sizing.

Could someone advise if it would be worth buying for general home/DIY use?

If it's like the vortex ones, the socket sits inside the ring of the ratchet, so a different system to 1/4" & 1/2".
This is useful for when even a really deep socket wouldn't be long enough.

Just been to one of the local Lidl stores (Wednesday evening) near my home.

This is set a strange combination of 13mm vortex pieces and 1/4" square drive pieces.

Unless you have a need for vortex sockets, the next socket set from on 27th February, 61 pieces might be more suitable.

Thanks!
Was hoping it will be 1/2" but it's 1/4"+3/8". The price isn't bad.
