Around 35mm for a hub nut.
If you can wait there is a sealey set for similar price on offer from time to time 1/2" drive and sizes go up to 32mm. I have the set I mentioned and for the price it's excellent. Amazon reviews say the same. https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0035F9WXI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_euJaFbYGRFXHC It's £45 at the moment, but as I said you can get it cheaper.
I buy the wheel nut sockets with the colour coded plastic sleeves for alloys from Halfords, £10 or £12 each but the three I have here have lasted me years.
I bought these for £20 a few years back when the brand just went on sale, they seem to be decent quality and the walls are thicker than the sockets above, also bought a set of Halfords own brand short sockets which are also very good.

Google it. Been some major fails globally down to cheap imported steel from China. Every country has different steel quality available. But none have substandard steel like China mass produce. These have been well known facts for decades. Not really a debate as people know tools made in Europe or America are always far better quality.
Cracking deal for a metabo, added 10 metal blades @ £5 for free delivery, cheers. But..... seriously that has to be the worst website I have ever used and that's since the 80's on windows 3.11
Fyi...Add a spare disc or anything for £3 and you get free delivery.
I have a Lidl own brand angle grinder for well over 15 years, still going strong.
They do. They just cost more..
Metabo and Bosch Professional are known for quality in Germany, in this case I would go for the Metabo as well because of the price but I have never been disappointed with Bosch professional tools. I remember the time my grandfather gave me a Bosch professional SDS drill which is now 25 years old and still working perfectly. I believe you stick to those tools you have good experience with. However, many manufacturers are no longer producing the quality they built in the past.
:D :D :D :D :D :D
OK, put something in his porridge then....
I already have one but don’t think that will work. His a hulk
@Misslovely Weren't you looking for one of these to staple your hubby to the nearest wall??
Ignore the trolls and the brand snobs. I repair and rebuild power tools. They are not complex pieces of machinery, hence why Lidl etc can sell tools with a 3 year warranty, for next to nothing and still make money. There is no magical secret to building them. The reason Makita and Dewalt etc mainly cost so much is branding and the price they pay for the advertisements that were plastered around the pitch at last night's West Ham vs Chelsea PL game, for instance. Yes, if you are chucking them around a building site or using them to build a house they will hold up better... But if you are doing light DIY Einhell tools will hold up very well. And don't let the insecure morons who use it as a form of compensating tell you otherwise. And Einhell are German, not Chinese.
I'll tell you my experience of a cheap angle grinder. 16 years ago I bought a 4.5" angle grinder from Netto. Remember them? It was literally in passing and I paid £9.99. I just got married, bought a house and was getting into power tools. Since then I became a new dad, moved house 3 times, became a dad 2 more times and this Netto angle grinder is still with me. It's been used and abused like you won't believe. Spindle nut got jammed once and had to be hammered off with a cold chisel. It's cut countless wooden pallets, reduced glass-fibre reinforced garage doors to a pile of rubble and ground and cut all sorts of metal and stone stuff over the years. Carlsberg would say "It's probably the best angle grinder in the world".
I’ve only got a mini angle grinder 115mm...
Yes. I used a similar sized one to cut through sandstone for a fireplace. You'll need to get the right disk for the job.
Yeah no probs, done it myself,
Can you use this for loose carpet ie carpet tacks?
Perfect for making renewing padding on chairs
Nice deal! What staples would I need to do cat 5/6? - For this gun?
Do you know if this will staple through 6mm plywood? thanks
Worked for me 😃
Still cheaper on ebay with free post and you get cashback through quidco/topcashback and nectar points.
Same price on ebay with no Prime requirement plus you get quidco/topcashback. ebay link These Amazon deals seems to very rarely be cheaper than you can get items elsewhere.
Good price :)
Good, branded saws are cheap. This isn't. Silverline is not a respected brand. Add the Amazon issues and this cold.
I know RRP has to be taken with a pinch of salt but I don't think there will be many early adopters at these kinds of prices. Makita HP001GD102 40v MAX XGT Combi Drill with 1 x 2.5Ah Battery, Charger and Carrycase Ex. VAT £409.00 Inc.

I have the 202 and find it great , does everything I need it to do
Yes, I have used the function but tbh it’s few and far between I ever use rotary stop.
Thanks was told to get one with chisel do these have this ?
Not a fan of the flex volt personally, A bit too weighty for hand held power tools for my liking, causes more strain injuries in heavy use, I do like them however for cordless chop saws and table saws etc etc, Atm I use mix of makita and Milwaukee cordless, best mix of both, all the top brands do the job these days, all about preference mostly, 95% of time anyway there is the odd duck in the mix.
I paid 8 quid a couple of months back
I wish I have time machine.
Is it available now?
https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/stanley-49-piece-screwdriver-set-1099-449-delivery-non-prime-at-amazon-3170799 Tenner on amazon if you had missed it
I found one!! 150 miles away
There were plenty in stock at my local Screwfix. Perhaps it's a regional thing or you've just been unlucky.
Voted cold! Screw fix run deWalt adverts all the time. They’re out of stock until the offer ends, then back at normal price. Tool Station seems a more genuine offer every time. Screwfix are owned by Kingfisher, which also owns B&Q. Make your own mind up! but find it in stock in Screwfix before you do that (lol)
Or if you really want to push the boat out and go for a twin pack with a DCD795, 3 x 3Ah batteries, and an DCF887 impact wrench with a monsterous 205Nm of torque, that will quite literally hammer a coach screw into anything... they are currently back in stock and 'on offer' at Screwfix here: https://www.screwfix.com/p/dewalt-dck2510l3t-gb-18v-3-0ah-li-ion-xr-brushless-cordless-twin-pack/682fk#product_additional_details_container Personally, I'd still go for a twin pack with the 796 as I actually think it's the best combi DeWalt have ever made - it's the right combination of size, weight, robustness and power. Sure the 996 is 'better' at piling into masonry, but then I'd use an SDS.
Yes,the 796 is the better drill.Waynebruce's comments above,also states the 796 is the better drill. I would personally go for this drill (wait for the battery and charger deals,or if you wanna buy another Dewalt tool cheap,with battery and charger),seeing as it has all the power you need and just in case you buy the wrong drill that doesn't do the job properly.
I prefer the full size one at asda https://groceries.asda.com/product/calculators-desktop-accessories/pen-gear-large-desk-stapler/1000003091964 whatever you do do not buy the poundland ones that come as a set (stapler & hole punch) as the stapler falls apart & doesnt work
I ordered this stapler last weekend its not bad, You cant hand staple more than 10-12 pages. But if you put it on table to support it you can staple around 15-18 80gsm A4 with hard hit.
Ryman’s usually good for this kind of stuff
Ordered a similar stapler for over £5 the other day... Good deal
Thank op! I ordered one but I wonder how many pages it will actually staple?!?!
Thanks everyone (y)
Some, if not a LOT of "name makes" are made in the same factories these are made. Only difference is a different name put on the spanners Snap On are one of those being made in Far East now, I have heard
Yes they cover the most common sizes in UK. Most things if not everything is now made in metric, only some very old machines I've seen need imperial sizes. Silverline seem to have a range of qualities but I think the good reviews on this is promising!
I have a very similar Silverline spanner set and they've been great. I am not a mechanic so have never used them in a really heavy duty setting but for DIY they're fine. To be honest, the kit I bought is better because it comes with a very convenient rolled pouch. Silverline 633799 Combination Spanner Set 6-22 mm - 12 Pieces amazon.co.uk/dp/B000NBYA5M/ref=cm_sw_r_wa_apa_i_N6Z9EbMQ5KRSF It is £16 at the moment but I bought it for around £9 last December. Get your time machines 😁
Yep, I had a tip break on one of mine after not much use and others showing wear - not impressed.
indeed, quite interesting... some of the latter inventions look pretty neat... still havent seen a robertson/ Phillips drive screw in the electrical trade in the UK though??hence my comment.. though it looks like a good idea (y)
Fantastic vde set
Mine also are made in the Czech Republic. @IWANTBLUE The confusion and challenges brought by two of common cross head bolt screw standards of Pozi and Philips had lead me to discover this article.Which was very informative.
Mine are made in the Czech Republic.
I just wanted the drill bits not the extras so ordered this instead at £6.62, came last week, no problems for the odd DIY job https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B001IBMO7C/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Like @meandog101 i have had this set for a few years now and found it perfectly adequate and very useful for jobs around the house.
I have this set. I use it for pretty much every basic DIY job around the house. Perfectly fine for drilling into brickwork, through wood etc. The smaller HSS bits did snap but the others are great. Certainly for £10 you cant go too wrong.
Last time this came up the recommendation was to go for this instead https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B01MYFFK9G?psc=1&ref=ppx_pop_mob_b_asin_title Which I did. Has been good.
Absolute crap. Bits snap for fun.
Thanks so much for the reply, really appreciated. I already have a bigger torque wrench for the chunkier jobs so I am after something than I can use on my bike and the more sensitive car jobs, so this sounds perfect. Cheers!
That was quick!
Cheers man. Wrench already arrived so just the bike now! This was my first order with Planet X but won't be the last based on service received and quality product
I've got a Lifeline branded one that looks almost identical. Best bike tool I've ever bought. Use it so often... I've just checked and it has a standard 1/4 inch square drive that other 1/4" sockets will fit on. But be careful with your expectations - this wrench only goes up to 24NM. Most things on a car that you're trying to tighten to proper torque settings will need a wrench with a higher range. (Car wheel nuts are typically 100-120NM for example...)
Anyone got any idea if this can be used with other hex bits or just the ones it comes with? I want one I can use on general motor stuff as well. Ta.
Thanks This is fascinating. Why would you use / need one?
I had a cross threaded wheel stud on the hub of my car. Meant the wheel nut wouldnt go on. Probably an MOT failure. But I ran the die over it to fix the thread and put the wheel nut on. Much easier than replacing the wheel stud. You probably wont be able to use the die holder because of the other wheel studs getting in the way, so I used vice grips. The tap part would be used to make a thread in hole drilled into metal, so you can fix a bolt into it.
This is fascinating. Why would you use / need one?
But I want to live!!!
Why do you even have two?
It's not good enough for big jobs, and it's too big for small DIY stuff. If you live in a new build house, a branded 12v cordless is easier to use and a close match in price. Or spend a little more and get 18v cordless.
Probly a good replacement if your kitchen blender breaks
I have 2 of these, very good.
Brought one of these once, used it once and it burnt out, useless
I had the complete opposite recently. Such a nightmare trying to get something exchanged. Don’t know if during lockdown they had less customer service people on but they repeatedly didn’t read my emails properly and just sent generic reply’s. So frustrating, took weeks to sort out. Was sorted instantly when I got through to a manager tho.
Ordered some toughbuilt c550 trestles yesterday with discount, here today (pair) 20 less than amazon!
I've also seen them do it on ebay items. Checking my basket both items have gone up in price. It will be interesting to see if the price drops after the discount has finished.
The best, I'd say, for times where you only need one or two items. Free P&P on orders with no minimum value often has me ordering little bits and bobs from them, and I've never had an order i've needed to return or arrived damaged / missing etc.
Interesting to read. I know they, along with many others, do it on eBay when there's a promotion (presumably because of fee's), but isn't something I'd expect on their website. Perhaps they've a profit margin they NEED to reach to make selling certain items worth their while. Thanks for the heads up.
Cheap hex keys can be found just about anywhere for a quid. Even Asda. These are £1.49, and stuck on a keyring.
No stock in stores?
None in stock at that price now :(
cheers OP, worth a punt
Same price at Toolstation but you get them delivered with Amazon
They'll be £1 in your local DIY store if you have one.
