Good deal, for what looks like deceptively good clobber.

This is important
Hardness of screwdrivers: slotted HRC50, PH, PZ, S, T: HRC54, bits: HR55

That's rockwell hardness rating. Cheap screwdrivers typically float around HR45 and are often described as Swiss cheese. HR55 is the lowest value for high speed carbon steel or tool steel and is pretty damn hard for a budget screwdriver. You can get tips up to HR66 (quality impact bits etc) but these often have the problem of obliterating the screw, in the wrong hands.

So all in all, good deal for so much kit - aimed perfectly at the light trade / heavy DIY market. Heat.

Hi sorry to sound stupid but what do you use the stud finder for?

I've got several different sets which combined make up most of what this contains, but this'll be much nicer to have in one place rather than dotted around the house wherever I randomly left something.

I also opted for the Stud finder for £9 to bring the order over £20 as I've been watching one on Amazon for months and it never went below £13.

Nice explanatory posting, thank you Tyranicus. I notice the Aldi details state 'bits, HR55'. Me being nothing but a suspicious pedant, I would say that the term 'HR' is meaningless. But HRA, HRB, HRC do have a specified meaning. Is the Aldi 'HR' 'merely' a typo/misprint, or something intended to deceive?

Nice input. Would you say this is fine for an everyday house stuff? Or would this be better?

I know you lose out on half the stuff but quality over qty? Its for a typical everyday use in house. Nothing for trade at all...

Thanks

Honestly for DIY neither will let you down. The Aldi set is better value - its always nice to have that screwdriver you didn't know you would need. Also don't be fooled by the Stanley name - it's Chinese mass produced stuff, unlike the tools of yesteryear.

Slightly different standards for the same thing. Essentially HR denotes steel hardness. To determine this they intentionally deform a blade / tool with a diamond "indenter" (of varied size). The different notation accounts for the variation in the size of indenter / pressure used.

They are not dramatically different and in the context of a home screwdriver set, the difference is irrelevant.

Thank you!
This deal is on the front page of the Aldi leaflet this week. It amazes me that there is anyone left in the Country that does not have a screwdriver set? Even more so for the bits, as manufacturers try to hype their products by saying they include a zillion pieces, when most of them are screwdriver bits! I would say the most useful part of the Aldi deal is the stand.
If you want quality then look out for Halfords deals on their professional range.
Aldi!
Another company who for some reason dont deliver to N. Ireland, UK.... despite their sales chap saying they use Hermes, Collect+ etc whose rates are the same throughout the UK !!
Are these things wall mountable?
Can this be used with an electric combi drill?
Can't say no to more tools at this price
Finally some decent cheap tools on HUKD, rather than the useless tat usually posted.
I would buy a set for work, but the 100 pieces magically drops to 96 pieces and so on when people borrow them and promise to bring them straight back!
the first things to go a miss will the bits, sorry £19.99 for 32 pieces, is nothing special would have preferred 100 handled screwdrivers for that.

Thing with DIY'ers is they will still use the wrong size screwdriver head for the screw and so make the screw look like swiss cheese....

And then blame the tools

Well it might still be the uk, but its still a different country
Ordered and a spare 5m extension cable to get free delivery. I probably have 50% of these bits spread over various places but with cheap screws, if you've not got the correct bit they can disintegrate causing a huge amount of hassle.

I shall keep this set together and only call on it when needed, if it doesn't get much use one of the kids can have it in a few years...

Thanks original poster and thanks for the clarification on hardness. Decent post

To find studs... only joking.. its so you can find the wood frame behind a plasterboard wall to hang heavy stuff without using plasterboard anchors.

Just note that the Halford Pro range only comes with Pozidriv cross heads, great for building flatpack or garden furniture but no good for working on a car where Philips is still more popular

Thanks for the post, you have taught me something I didn't know
Never had an issue with Aldi tools. Always been very good quality. I've got three power tools from there and still going strong!
Thanks op got the last one online last night.
Ordered my girlfriend a body scrub in the sale for £2.49 for free delivery. So worked out cheaper than paying delivery.
