heat and rep, not only do you inform us, you decided to use your smarts and not post individual deals like these bloody half price perfumes at tescos and cereal for 1 pound at asda posters!

The pliers/cutters set is good quality - I bought one a while back.

Some good stuff there. The item that stands out for me is something I could use; its the Universal Sharpening Set At £2.45. Screwfix charge £15.65 for similar (hopefully Lidl quality will be not too disimilar). Ta!

Note that the screwdriver set is likely to be a con because it doesn't have any Pozidriv screwdrivers, only Phillips which are inferior and not compatible - check before you buy.

Be warned - this says nothing about containing diamonds so it won't; I imagine the Screwfix one does, so will be much better.

Same pliers as Wickes are selling for £2.45 (the left 3 only)

Philips head screws aren't inferior, I've just bought 4,000 drywall screws , all Philips ,the latest
models.

Drywall screws have Phillips (note spelling) heads because they are cheaper; they are ]inferior because you can't put as much turning force on them as Pozidriv screws. I imagine there's some patent/royalty issue with Pozidriv which makes the screws and the screwdrivers more expensive.

And you wouldn't want to put in 4000 drywall screws with these screwdrivers anyway.

I never have any problems with Phillips drywall screws AND I use them for serious jobs like
screwing through aluminium and steel when erecting conservatories and screwing frame extensions and cills to windows and doors (UPVC reinforced with steel or alu). It depends on the manufacturer of the screw and I only buy quality screws, I've had many pozi screws snap under pressure if they are not up to standard.

Hahahaha, I can't believe you are arguing about screw heads.

Neither are inferior btw, just used for different jobs.......pz for timber screws , ph for drywall.

Edit just found this en.wikipedia.org/wik…riv which says that pozi is more torquable, however with the width of drywall screws and the fact that we are talking about hand screwdrivers, this becomes a bit of a moot point.

Damn it, now I'm going on about screw heads........:oops:

Yes yes yes but that doesn't mean the screwheads aren't inferior to Pozidriv. If they are up to the job that's fine; I'm just explaining why this set probably contains no Pozidriv screwdrivers which may catch people out because they are likely to want to use them with Pozidriv screws!

That's a testament to the Pozidriv system - the screw snaps before the bit cams out!! You're confusing the quality of the screw (oo-err) with the type of head (missus).

Yes that's the link I posted above - maybe goldmax will read it this time. :-D

Overpriced rubbish that will break in two seconds

Hardly Tools of the TRADE, but good deals nonetheless.

Not the pliers set, but then I guess you didn't read the thread before you decided to contribute that nugget of wisdom. :roll:

Ive always had cheaper secondary tools to my main tools and must say unlike a lot of other cheap hand tools, these from Lidl generally are good quality. Ive had screwdriver sets in the past which are still going strong today.

I have nothing against cheap tools, but if your going to go cheap, you can find cheaper than this and the same quality. They are ALWAYS doing cheap tools. So nothing special.

I am so glad you get excited over pliers and hope they let you out more soon

Anyone who makes that sort of remark says far more about themselves than the people they are trying to mock. Why was it necessary?
