Cheap tat. Go to Halford's, B&Q, Screwfix etc if you want good tools at reasonable prices.
I've also been waiting 4 weeks for my order and still nothing... Terrible rude customer service....
Paying any money for bad quality tools is just a waste of money.
Done it once - paid twice.
Cheap tat dont waste your money
Expensive quality tools being a necessity is a bit of a fallacy for me. Unless you run a garage or workshop or do tool based work for a living, cheap tools are fine. I was an aircraft fitter in the RAF for 10 years and then a design engineer. My work tools used to be snapon or similar. Very nice to use as well. My tools at home are all cheapo ones. Always have been. Have changed exhausts, brakes, alternator, timing belts, done car servicings, changed toilet cistern, done a bit of loft plumbing to swap float valve, fixed oil boiler, kids’ bikes, garage door, neighbour’s guttering, fixed 2 electric guitars and an electric piano, fixed petrol lawnmower, wall socket changes, fixed washing machine ...... 2 dishwashers. There’s loads more. I get stitched for it all. My spanners are mostly from pound shops. Screw drivers the same. Bought a cheap socket set from a boot fair and gathered odd sockets along the way. My tool kit is probably worth no more than £100. Good quality saw blades and drills etc are another thing to be honest, but even then it depends on what you need and how much tool work you need it for. Same goes for power tools. I have decent power tools but for someone periodically putting up some shelves or a curtain rails, why the hell would you fork out £100+ on a dewalt or ryobi drill? You get what you pay for. Balance the price against the use.
Can this be the second reincarnation this week?

If you're not concerned about poor quality tools damaging what you're using them on, then fine, go ahead, but tools failing when you've got pressure on them aren't just a nuisance, they can cause injury. You've also got the added work/inconvenience when you find bolt heads rounded by sockets or spanners that aren't quite the right size.
Kits like this contain things you don't want and will never need. Stick to what you need and you can save money without sacrificing quality. You don't need to spend Snap-on money either.
This appears to have increased in price a lot over two years.
