Quite agree Dracula. Chrome vanadium. Much stronger

Are these the type made of lead shot that disintegrate at the first sign of a moderately tight screw? Genuinely wondering as I need some new bits.

I'm my experience longevity is all about using the correct size of bit - the all disintegrate eventually but use the wrong side and you speed the process up.

This set is probably made up of quite a few you'll never use so you might be better buying a couple of bulk packs of pz2 or similar. That'll save you using the wrong ones when the only good ones left are the wrong size for the job.

I have this and its been surprisingly useful,particularly for my renault clio, and lasted several years without rusting or shearing (though i got the red plastic case not the neon green one).

These can be had in one of our local shops for £2.99.

Surely the point of this set is that when you need something obscure, there's a good chance there will be one in here. No point having a pack of No 2 Pozidriv when what you actually need is a 2.5mm hex. Yes, you'll probably need to replace the PZ2 pretty quickly if that's what you use most of the time.

I have a similar set which I've had for many years. I rarely use it but just occasionally I go to it for obscure bits.

Same (low but acceptable for duy) quality at a slightly lower price.

I was responding to a specific post, however in response to your reply I'll say that cheap, easily rounded Allan keys and hex head fixings are worse than their pozi/Phillips counterparts.

Id advise buying some decent Allan keys as I don't see those as disposable whereas pz and ph bits are throwaway items.

Its each their own with tools, but cheap ones - especially spanners and sockets etc - are a false economy imho.

I do love decent quality tools, but for some things for a lot of people there is sense in buying the cheapest serviceable tool you can. If it breaks, buy a high quality one because you clearly used it a lot. I'd hazard that security bits and torx bits fall into that bracket for most people.

I agree on the Allen keys and hex bits though. I ruined my fair share of fasteners as a teenager with a crappy Allen key set.

Fair point. I do have a set of expensive German-made Wiha Allen keys, which I regard as money well spent. However, just occasionally I need an Allen bit for a drill driver, and then I use the cheapo set. Maybe I should try to find a quality set of assorted bits.
