Basically you should be a mechanic or engineer to have one, that's why I asked if it's possible for a warehouse operative (like me) to get one and how... Anyway thanks ;)


It wont let me add to basket?




How can I do the trade card/account if I'm just a warehouse operative? Actually a forklift driver/team leader...


I used mine 3 times before the ratchet broke and I'm just a light diy user. It would have cost more in fuel to take it back!

Every woman needs a set of these


Yea’ that’s HUKD voters for you (annoyed)


Why's this expired when it hasn't started yet? It goes live this Sunday coming.


I must admit i bought them from Aldi as they were on sale and coinsided with me borrowing a set from someone a little while previous and thought it would be a good acquisition.Needless to say i havent needed to use them since,but there about if need to.Somewhere.I dont generally need to buy tools as work provides them to use. But with both stores giving a 3 year warranty on most it's a reassuring backup. (y)


The flex head ones that are coming up at Aldi are probably a better bet as it has 15mm rather than 14mm. 14mm is a strange size to include IMO. I've been using Aldi flexi head spanners at work for ages and they're fine. Only for jobs that require the ratchet/access rather than as a replacement for regular spanners obviously.

This parker set doesn't look too bad for the money tho. ParkerBrand 215 Piece Professional Socket Set https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B012SIRA4A/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_VN.xCbZB33X0K 2 year warranty. But i never heard the name from people before


That Bahco set is far fancier than anything I use at work! Something that you absolutely will never, ever regret buying is this Bahco set ( Bahco-S4RM3T ). It is amazing, and I use it every day and have done for several years. When it breaks, I will immediately buy another.


Well I'm really only just getting into. Working on family cars so the usual stuff. Oil changes brake pads etc. When the weather's warmer maybe the water pump and belt changes, spark plugs etc. I've been looking at the bahco 138 set on Amazon recently as i wanted to do more for the next few years. Already had the 10 pound Chinese sets that split after 1 use so want something sturdy on a students budget. I.e not more than 150 max


It entirely depends on what you're working on. I work as a mechanic full time, and I have all sorts of brands, very few of them are expensive. The poshest stuff I have is Wera or Irimo or Bahco probably in terms of sockets and spanners. It makes far more sense IMO to buy what you need as your need arises than to buy a stupid 'one size fits all' kit and find that you've loads of stuff that you don't use, and yet no E20 socket for your car's airbox or whatever. Kamasa is a good/cheap brand. Also the Bergen stuff has proved surprisingly good for the money. I even have a Eurocarparts 1/2 socket set that has completely refused to break. There are loads of good cheap tools out there.


Wait until the Modular sets are on buy two get one free and get 3 suitable sets. ;)

Looks like Halfords are playing silly 6u66ers with their prices and promotions. 'Payday Deal Half Price Gearless Tools'. 3/8" Gearless Ratchet. Was £12. now £10. (Half price, eh?).


Here speaks someone you just know has a dedicated ratchet drawer in one of their toolboxes.


Payday deal... "Oh great, it's payday! Must run out and buy a ratchet spanner!" Haha Heat added, though :)


Do you need to provide proof of purchase under lifetime guarantee?


There's no ratchet mechanism in either offer here.

Yes I use my 10% discount along with my trade card all the time


As usual - contains a bunch of AF (imperial) sockets which most of us will have no use for, they could lose them and charge even less, even that bastion of irrelevant standards: Harley Davidson is slowly turning to metric fittings!

Good price for a handy screwdriver to leave about the house for general usage
Get dealGet deal

Yeah, I bought, handy for kitchen draw, go to... £1.60 with trade, can't go wrong, and actually a LOT better than feared.


£1.60 with trade card.


Bargain price, and OK for very occasional use (so I've not voted), but I had one, and it was miserable to use (I can't remember why - sorry), then broke (the ratchet band broke and wouldn't lock so it became useless). For a go-to general purpose "kitchen drawer" option, I'd suggest getting something either more basic or more expensive - either a non-ratchet option, or a better quality brand)

STANLEY Multibit Ratchet Screwdriver + 10 Bits
Get dealGet deal

It's an ok not bad screwdriver. One small negative for me is that the top is twist on/off and unscrews as you undo with the screwdriver. Hope that makes sense.


(lol) brainer


Old Stanley = top notch New Stanley = Grade A Chinesium junk, no better than the stuff they flog off in pound-shops, if not worse. Poor quality tools are a waste of time and money and you end up fixing what they damage in the process.


According to some of the reviews it's very badly made and can fall apart. Sadly I don't think Stanley is the premium brand it once was.


Bought mine just over a year ago and sadly have been disappointed by the general quality of it too. Felt great initially but with more and more use seems to be falling apart bit-by-bit (no pun intended)

Bought this yesterday for £12.50 but presumed, without checking, it’s often that price. Should have posted it! Was going to get a cheaper Stanley one but reckon this is better quality... here’s hoping.

Great little bit of kit at the lowest it’s ever been
Get dealGet deal

Got this. It's perfectly acceptable. Do I find myself reaching for it when I want a screwdriver... Not really. Would I pay £17.99 (don't know how much I did pay) ...don't think so really. The storage of bits in the handle is convient though. The screwdrivers seem study and well built if not a little long and heavy... In hindsight maybe that's why it's not the first one I reach for in the tool box.


NON pistol grip, same thing but normal handle.


Thank you! Ordered. Intrigued now what this will be like! Coming tomorrow apparently


Nice find OP. Tempted by the stubby option but can’t justify. Bahco good quality tools (y) shame the bits aren’t held the same way as Wera.


The original packaging version is not pistol grip if that matters to anyone buying

On their website it says a payslip counts, im an audi apprenticeship vehicle technician. Im not sure if thats good enough tho


True but a quick test of your own under a shop press fitted with a gauge may be added reassurance.


Don't forget these are TUV certified, so they would be load tested to twice the weight (3ton) what is listed as safe working load 1.5t each. They come with a 3 year guarantee too, easily returned for a refund or replacements


99% sure. Just check the weld on the seam behind the label and the opposite side.


You sure it's these very same ones? Halfords do a variety

Seems to have gone up to £5.48 now.


Same here, the black plastic cap that holds the ratchet tends to get loose after a while screwing so you need to constantly tighten it. Just simply stupid bad design. Spend a bit more for something better, I'll say.


Amazon seem to have lost their mind completely with this bloody "Frustration-Free Packaging". Personally, I can't care less about the packaging.


Voted hot and bought


I have one of these and is OK, nothing special. its not as nice as my older non ratchet Stanley one. I wouldn't buy it again... I think id buy something of higher quality, but id say its not bad for the money if its only for occasional use.

I don't own this Bosch set but I do have this Bahco set which is very good. The pro brand SnapOn own Bahco, I "think" they are a Swiss company, at least that's what it says on my Bahco hand saw. :)




I've got this too. Great set


Similar as in a Rolson or Am-Tech that will break after a few months?


If I'm after some stronger screwdriver and drill bits (have a Bosch X70 set and find the bits break far too quickly now I'm doing more DIY), is this the set to go for or are there better options? Don't mind paying a bit more for a set that will last.

There are no bits for an impact driver provided in this set but these sockets are intended for use with an impact wrench: 7 x 1/2" Drive Impact Socket 13, 14, 15, 17, 19, 21, 23mm Impact drivers are usually used for screws and impact wrenches are usually used for sockets. You can use adaptors of course but they're less efficient.


Can these be used in an impact driver?


That's what I thought until I bought a Caterham. Then I was very glad for them!


Worth having a set of spline sockets when working with damaged fasteners.
