The "Tommy Walsh" white silicon sealant in a toothpaste type dispenser tube is a brilliant idea. No need for a mastic gun and full tube if you just want to ptach a small sink or bathroom section.
I bought loads of bits in the Tommy Walsh section. 4 rolls of insulation tape with tonnes on them ,
filler spatula's

Most tools you buy from Poundland ain't worth a quid.

Heated OP, worth a quid for a set of cheap screw drivers that will probably disintegrate the first time you use them. X)

good for the missus better than using fingers

Good for household stuff, we got a tape measure and it was fine. I doubt Tommy Walsh would put his name to second rate stuff

Is he not now somewhat z list and as desperate to rekindle his fame as he appears then?

The metal bit of the screwdriver turns and not the screw!

Exactly - good for household stuff,
Anything that needs a bit of power then obviously these won't do.

Tommy's useful tip on the cup hooks I bought was "perfect for hanging cups"...

Made especially for Poundland apparently dailymail.co.uk/new…tml

Got a set of these the other week, used for dismantling electrical things like radios and tape recorders, surprised to say the set is very good for light use. Well done Tommy Walsh and Poundland!


A list......X Y Z List......All flogging something.....celebrity vulture, sorry culture... don't you just love it

Poundland are trying to do for diy what they did with Jane Asher and the baking stuff, that seemed to go down well so make some ok ish stuff and put a familiar face on it and people buy it. Tommy Walsh is still on the TV quiet a lot on the discover network, still not bad for a builder on a gardening show.

Don't call me Shirley

If they're gud enough for Tommy Welsh they're god enough for me. Good find op..

I got so sick of him driving round in that old jaguar and adveritising the 'bricky'.....

A lot of the Poundland stuff is pretty good, fit for purpose, the stuff that isn't so good you can clearly see isn't. A lot of the time it's the same sort of stuff other retailers will charge £2-3 for. Poundland do have very tight margins on most of their goods and make their money on the high turnover. Not forgetting they often do end of line stuff which is even better value if you are lucky enough to find it in your store.

got a screwdriver exactly like these with a flat pack desk, it was crap a screwdriver made of cheese would have worked better.

I brought his paintbrush brush itself good quality but hollow plastic handel broke thanks tommy for load crap lol

Tommy Walsh knows the square root of f@!k all.

A screwdriver made of cheese ? oO

I can confirm that the Tommy Walsh gloss paint in poundland is worth about that much and no more! Tiny tin as well! Not sure I would rush to buy his screwdrivers.

I got some 4m x 5m thin plastic dust sheets from there for £1. They do what they do.

Were they recommended by our Tommy though ?

Most of this range is the same old cheap tools they've been selling for years, just all now rebranded with Tommy Walsh's boat.In fairness though, there are a few bits in the range which are a good buy at a £1, then again there are some which you'd want change from 10p for, but based on the photo alone, these look pretty OK.Obviously it'd be unrealistic to expect Tommy's 5 screwdrivers to last as long as Stanley's, but should probably last long enough to put a flat pack together at least!

Cheap tools are a NO NO..!

Never buy cheap tools

I don't know why I even bother buying anything from poundland anymore.
Glue doesn't stick. Plants don't grow. Scrapers don't scrape. Spray paint doesn't set.
Nearly everything is crap, a waste of even a pound!

These will be really soft metal, round off easily and just wind you up at the end of the day.

(The bombay mix is nice, one redeeming factor for poundland).

its all about money,, most celebrities endorsing products for cash have never seen or used the product..but as someone else commented cheap screwdrivers,, i have paid over £20 for a set of screwdrivers that just crumbled at the first tight screw,,, voted hot

Interestingly according to an article he would only put his name to tools that he would say are high quality. Apparently instead of packing five brushes for a high price and low quality he packs three for a lower price and higher quality.

TBH I've never heard of him. I got a precision screwdriver set from them a while ago, works fine for light use on kids toys

What ??! You've never heard of our Tommy ? - Tommy Walsh ( ground force - Google it ) he's a legend in poundland DIY soon to take over B&Q or is it B&M ? - sorry it's one of them honest

OK OK , so everyone's harking on about how crap the screwdrivers and other tools are in the Tommy Wlash section. The consumables are not !! , the Wet & Dry sandpaper was £4 for less sheets across the road in Wilkies. a pot of pre mixed smooth filler was £2.79 , silicon in a tube dispenser ? can't find. Simple pollyfiller metal spatulas ? again can't find.
Then there's sanding blocks in foam you can wash and re-use, insulation tape was £3 for 2 rolls were as you got 4 decent rolls in the Tommy Walsh section. The consumable D.I.Y stuff is fantastic value for the small household jobs.

Extra wide masking tape ? try get that at b&q for a quid !.
