VDE Pliers & Screwdriver Set 9 Pieces - £15.99 @ Screwfix (C&C)

Found 12th May
Screwfix are clearing a range or 'Forge Steel' branded products. Thought these looked like a good deal while checking for bargains.

If bought separately, 19.99 for pliers, 9.99 for screwdrivers

Cheers @aus6 - nice find.

Welcome to HUKD, good first deal
Bought a few weeks ago a great set well worth the money. Also a nice case to put them in although working out where each one goes is tricky. This set goes with all the other "forge steel " clearance tools I have bought over the last few months at good prices.
Not my normal choice but might be ok for my emergency set.
The Halfords Advanced screwdriver set for £6 and buying some pliers separately would be my pick over these

Not VDE though...
I've got the Halfords set from last year, they aren't that good, worth 6 quid and no more.
This set seems good quality, thanks OP.
Good find.

no doubt there are better branded options, but this set includes the VDE pliers and cutters! That's where 2/3 the value is.

I concour bin the neon screwdriver straight away misleading and possibly dangerous.
Welcome to England op . Not that I've used ozbargins for a few years but I think you'll find HotUKDeals to be far superior

Just for people who are considering this set, the cutters are made of cheese and will be blunt, missaligned in no time and the screwdrivers have heads that are pretty useless, spend a bit more, get a decent brand and they’ll last years. For reference we supply our apprentices with the forge stuff and it just doesn’t last! (We give them forge as they lose as much as they break! Losing a £2 screwdriver isn’t so bad as losing a £10 driver.... on a weekly basis!)
All of the cheaper sets have Phillips screwdrivers most UK electrical terminals are POZIDRIVE so they don't work properly & will wear out quickly.

Make them pay for their own. They'll soon stop loosing them
