Nice one - reserved
Not worth it... Bought the same set a few years back.... The steel the screwdrivers is made of is cheap and crappy.
Looks a decent deal. Heat from me.

You are entitled to your opinion of course, but I must say that in this case it is a rather absurd one. I use a similar set of Stanley screwdrivers almost daily, they are absolutely fine for normal use (if I was a carpenter or a mechanic by profession I might buy something better - but then maybe not) and £9 is a very good price indeed.
I've added some heat as this is a really good deal, I may even buy a set today.

Good find, reserved one. Thanks OP
good find op, heat added
Good price for the quantity but you'll soon know which ones you use regularly as you'll have to replace them soon enough, I think they're made of butter. Heat for the price though
Perfect for the first time buyer thanks OP, reserved.

He was meaning it's not just an opinion because it is fact. There can be a big difference.

These will be fine for most jobs but the smaller headed Stanley tools I've had have all deformed quite easily.
been Halfords & these show £10 on basket but scan at £9. good find just got my set home Thanx OP
I would rather grab the Halfords Pro set when it comes up on offer (which it does, often) for a similar price.

Better warranty, decent screwdrivers -Only downside is the lack of a plastic case.

I've never used these exact items, but can honestly say that Stanley is not the guarantee of quality it used to be over 20 years ago. I can well believe that the blades deform easily - they used to make a ratchet screwdriver with interchangeable bits which was amazing value at around 7 quid about ten years ago, but since then some of their stuff is on a par with pound shop items.
I had many friends who were in the furniture trade and so used screwdrivers, chisels, planes etc several times a day - at one time Stanley tools would last most of a lifetime, but for some reason they became shoddy, perhaps a change of ownership, or pressure from places like Halfords B&Q etc to reduce prices - whatever the reason, I'd much rather go to a good car boot or house auction and buy some genuinely old tools from a time when they were Sheffield or German made.

Must be Chinese steel.
I'd suggest if the heads deform then you aren't using them correctly. ie. the wrong screwdriver for the type of screw you are using/extracting.
Nope using correctly. The steel is just poor.
I don't know why ive had to justify myself so in this thread.

I've stated.. Bought these and they weren't great.
Just because the tools are £9 does not necessarily make them a good buy.

Take my advice, don't take my advice.
If given the chance i wouldn't have bought but instead would have gone for the halfords set as suggested above.

Caveat emptor.
Voted cold on the basis that the only person who has any real experience of tyres has clearly stated that they're rubbish quality.
As said in an earlier post, wait till halfords reduce their professional set again - they're genuine quality at a very good price.
And if you'd rather have a blue and yellow set search for 'kinzu' on eBay and Amazon. Maybe the Chinese chap that makes these is called Stanley?

Must be Chinese steel.



Or Tata (tat ?)
Are these left handed or right handed screwdrivers?
nice find
I have a set of these, and I can confirm the steel used in these drivers is softer than average. £9 is cheap, nice if you don't have sufficient drivers in your home. But if do have sufficient drivers in your tool box like I do, don't buy these and thinking it's good to have some spares - they don't last and you ended up with need to buy another set again soon. My advise: if you do a lot of DIY like I do, get yourself a set of finest tools from the very beginning. At the end of the day, you get what you pay.

Pro sets came up ages ago - worked out at £3.60p a set instead of £15. Posted on this site.
Halfords are currently doing selected Pro screwdriver sets at £15 each and 2 for £20. Buying 2 of these sets would probably cover most requirements and they are guaranteed a lifetime. There might be 34 items in the Stanley set but they wouldn't all get used

I'd suggest you haven't got a clue what you are on about.
Going off your "if the screwdriver fits the type of screw perfectly then it shouldn't deform" theory, then I should be ok with these chocolate screwdrivers I made earlier?

Just because it fits doesn't mean it's not going to shear or bend. You can get a perfect fit but if the screw is tight and the steel of poor quality then you're not getting the screw out simple as that.

Go buy a set, walk into your local timber yard and ask a professional tradesman what he thinks of them. Post their cleaned up replies on here.
