Screwfix-Forge Steel 56 piece tool kit and tote bag £34.99

Tool kit from Screwfix-with an open tote bag, rather than zip. Original price £59.99. I'm going to buy this to keep at my parents' so I always know where the tools are!

These tools are decent occasional use quality, with good handles. Won't last long for daily use, but good for a basic diy-er. I bought this last time they were on offer and I particularly like the knife with its retractable blade and spare blades stored within the handle.

56 pieces boil down to 23 pieces when you take off all the screwdriver bits and hex keys. Still a good price for the kit, when you consider that an open tote is £16.99 on its own.

Contains: 6 x screwdrivers (4 x slotted (3 x 100, 5 x 100, 6 x 40, 6 x 150mm) and 2 x Pozi (#1 x 100, #2 x 150)), 1 x bit driver, 24 x 25mm chrome vanadium screwdriver bits, 2 x pliers (200mm long nose, 160mm diagonal), 1 x 8" adjustable wrench, 8 x folding hex keys, 1 x 5m tape measure, 1 x junior hacksaw, 1 x utility knife, blade pack (5 x blades), 1 x semi-round file, 1 x 8" scissors, 2 x 3" spring clamps, 1 x 300mm ruler and 1 x 16" open tote bag.

Much appreciated

A general toolkit with no hammer! How do you adjust things?

I reckon you could put this kit together for less.

There's no duct tape either, so it's impossible to fix them too

I bought this a few months ago when I moved into my new house and have to say, apart from the lack of hammer, it is a great starter set and a great price. It is much better to start out with this and upgrade the various tools you actually use than to splash out more and find you barely use some of them.

The quality of this stuff is questionable - I have a few screwdrivers from this range and they are pretty weak.

Much better to buy high quality gear and just get the stuff you need.

good deal Op - pretty good collection of tools for the money

No hammer? That's all i have in my toolbox.

Maybe the hammer was worth £25? That's why its cheaper.

Got a few forge steel bits in the past, "how bad can it be?”

...Absolute junk. Softest steel you could imagine, screwdrivers are one use at best. Spend an extra few quid and get decent tools that will last a life time.

As with all tools if you buy cheap you buy twice. Much better to buy items individually as you need them, and spend much more per item on good quality. I still have tools I bought 30+ years ago - I doubt if any of these will last that long.
