They're probably expecting them for a fiver


These are imperial measure not metric. So useless for most modern applications.

As far as I know Apex tool group still makes Halfords advanced professional tools.


Looks like a decent saving, too advanced for my needs that's not to say I wouldn't fancy a set. Voted hot for the deal though... Not sure why others are voting cold.

Yh been there and Screwfix and didn't have it. Ended up buying it on eBay for a 1/4" driver, wasn't expensive. Thanks guys for all the comments.


Bought the same set about 6 years ago and it's been brilliant. Bargiain for anyone looking for some cheap sockets


Have u tried Halfords? They sell individual sockets.


Ebay is the best place for random sockets at a good price. Stick to known brands and you should be fine quality wise. Halfords professional variety are well priced and solid. Teng are a good bet but a bit overpriced. And if you are willing to sell a kidney, Snapon is an option.


True agree, i need something for the kids bikes or when need to do the small odd adjustem etc.

Halfords - Advanced 170 Piece Socket and Ratchet Spanner Set - £120
Found 11th AugFound 11th Aug
The cheapest I've seen :)
Get dealGet deal

Not snapped mine yet and had a m long scaffold bar on the end. I snapped the wheel nut though (strong) :(


I bought a set of non impact 3/8 deep laser sockets around 25 years ago. Never managed to break one despite spinning them up on a snap on air ratchet. Lost a few over the years and replaced them with snap on as and when. TBH if I was starting out again I wouldn't bother with snap on I'd go for draper expert, bahco or maybe halfords Pro range.


Take it back


I wish they did just a metric set with 200 pieces, I'd never use AF sockets these days . Unless you're into old cars they aren't much use, just makes the set take up more room.


Why? Halfords tool sets are like dfs sales. Almost Always on offer

Still got my old battered one without bit storage. New one is (poo) with cheaper plastics. Clearly Stanley has cheapened out & going in the wrong direction as a business. As they say, buy cheap, buy twice with tools.


Yeah I wouldn't bother. I took mine back. Wished I had bought 2 back in the day.


I have one & it’s not great. The lid for the storage compartment keeps coming undone when I’m using it


I've got the original one as well (The bottom doesn't come off to store the bits though, they're all round the collar) my one still works great after years of use. Was thinking about buying this as a spare for a fiver, but sounds like I would be disappointed!


I have an original one bought about 9 years ago which is great. They changed the manufacture of them a few years ago. The latest ones are very poor quality. Ratchet mechanism fails. I bought one and compared side by side. Every element is cheaper.

3 Tonne Ratchet Axle Stands - £20 (now £18 w/code) @ Halfords (free C&C)
Refreshed 16th AugRefreshed 16th Aug22/08/2018Expires on 22/08/2018
*Updated 16th: Use code LIFT10 to get for £18* 3 tonne ratchet axle stand, rated to 1500 kg per stand. Reduced to £20 from £30 which makes them £3.99 CHEAPER then the 2 tonne set

Never had an issue with ratchet type. Used them for years.


Hi these also come in very handy to go with the axle stands Rubber protection pads


I don't know, I think it's just a paranoia thing for me. Maybe they're just as safe as the pin ones. As for peace of mind though, the pin ones are the way forward for me. Whatever works best for you I suppose! (y)


Not sure it's possible to 'slip a link' unless you set them up wrong, in which case it's not the stand's fault. Used the halfords ones for years without issues apart from the relatively tall lowest setting as noted above. As for the design being more dangerous. Why? It's not like you can kick the lever and then the car comes crashing down. All the stands from different brands look like they come out of the same factory in China. Would love to know if Facom or other more expensive stands are any better.


You're not the only one, great deal if they were pin but not risking my body or vehicle just because of a faulty one.

Terry Pratchett Lords And Ladies Kindle (Discworld Novel 14) £1.99 Amazon Kindle

Terry Pratchett Lords And Ladies Kindle version (Discworld Novel 14) £1.99 on daily deal

Bought for completion (I have a kindle paperwhite) but terry is one of my favourite authors so I have every book physically. In fact just got a load of paperbacks from a charity shop as spares just so I can keep the rest in good condition. Can't complain at 5 for £1!


Without a doubt correct, and as a fan I own practically all of them (house moves and "lending" to friends aside) however the deal is for a fantastic price for a great book on the kindle, which means I can lug all of the books about on my phone rather than a large (sadly unwalking) piece of luggage. Advantages to both options, imo


Reading a book on a phone via Kindle app is far easier than reading a book. You choose the font, font size, page colour, page size that suit you. Heat to OP.


Couldn’t agree more


For Terry Pratchett books, you really need the feel of a paperback. Check out the charity shops, they can't sell books cheap enough now, search for the discworld novels, give them your hard earned pennies not Amazon when it comes to books.

[PlayStation Hits] The Last of Us / Bloodborne GOTY / Uncharted / Ratchet and Clank / Yakuza 0 (PS4) £13.85 ea. Delivered (Preorder) @ Base
Found 27th JunFound 27th Jun
(Almost) All the hit titles are currently £13.85 to be ordered from Base. :D Base takes money on dispatch.

Is it sad that i have 11 of these? Still havent played bloodborne or MGS


The NON-'Platinum/Essentials/Hits' physical versions of games, or SKUs, will be the first batch unpatched release. The Platinum/Essentials/Hits SKUs, majority of the time have been updated, bugs fixed, dialogue changed, etc. This is definitely true for PS and PS2. From PS3 onwards, as games have constant updates, it doesn't matter what version you get, in terms of the SKU, because it will always be patched to the latest update. When PS3 games went for £1 or £2, I got a bunch of them as silver platinum boxes or red essential boxes. "Ah, but you're an idiot, because they're going to turn off PSN for PS3 in 20xx, and you won't be able to play/update that game on your PS3 anymore, even if you have the disc." That's why I upgraded my PS3 40gb hard disk to a 500gb one and game by game downloaded all the updates for every game. No doubt I'll eventually have to do that for my PS4 collection. But with external 4tb drives under £90 these days, and slowly dropping, it won't be that hard. I'll probably end up buying TLOU remastered, if I can't get it on ebay for the magic price of under £10 inc. delivery.


Its one of,if not the best game on ps4 for me..i love it


Nice post Mixi :) Awesome games.... The Last Of Us <3 All of the games though, very cheap for Yakuza 0 which physically generally has a going rate of £20+


Oh bloody hell even cheaper!!

Thanks a lot, I appreciate it.



Any chance you can check the trade price on the Halfords torque wrenches please :D


Yeah OK. XD


Both the 12 and 6 point sockets in the Halfords range are more like spline sockets that that traditional flat faced one - the face section is curved ensuring that all of the torque in not placed on the "point" but well back on the face. Even the point is curved. I have a couple of sets of spline sockets - they are excellent at removing any damages fixing as they will grab on to any surface.

10 pc cashback @ Halifax rewards.


Just picked my set up today and I’ll be as honest as I can. I was unsure if these were going to be the same quality as the Makita coloured bits which I’ve been using for 2 years (same set nothing has broken) and this set seems to be of the same quality. The extension part jams quite often when you have the spinny bit on the outside. But this happens on most extensions not just Makita. Overall I’m very impressed and for the price you can’t complain


Haha no worries bud (lol)


Apologies. I missed the 15% off code bit, but still OOS. Thanks for correcting me. Nothing like a bit of correction ;)

Kindle Version of The Light Fantastic £1.99 (Discworld Novel 2) Terry Pratchett (Discworld series) Daily deal I think so likely only this price today.

I am a massive, massive Terry fan but I would not recommend anyone to start with either The Colour of Magic or The Light Fantastic as your entry into Discworld. Neil Gaiman one of Terry's dearest friends and fellow acclaimed author says this too. Terry was finding his feet and style with those early books. Still a rib splitting read. My personal recommendation is to start with the Guards books and work your way through as you like. Only an opinion not everyone will agree. #ripterry


you should read the colour of magic first, this is a continuation of that book, some of the best stories ever


The first Terry P novel I ever read, great book for fantasy fans.hot


Heat. But it was 99p a couple a days ago as i bought it.

I bought http://www.halfords.com/workshop-tools/tools/tool-kits/halfords-advanced-modular-tray-set-18pc-impact-socket-set last week for £32 with my trade card, these 6 point sockets are superb for the money if you already have a 1/2" ratchet.


I agree mate


I I would maybe live with the imperial sockets, sell them off etc, but then the rest is 12 point this set is ok when either whatever you work on is up to 3 years old or you work on 12point bolts all the time which I doubt...

I’m not talking people out then. I recommend them they are brilliant and good value. I figured if any of mine break I’d just take it in. If they refuse take up with management most places would just give a new ratchet for what it’s worth


If you ever need to change the battery on a Fiat 500 or Ford KA MK2 this will be invaluable. There is practically no access and using a non-ratcheting combination spanner is a lesson in tedium (lol)


To break the ratchet then you are working on an item thats not been oiled or is rusted badly. Tools only snap through miss use or bad thought and planning. ;)


Just got in there before midnight. Thanks OP


My local Halfords are fantastic. They replaced my faulty ratchet spanner on the spot. I religiously only buy Halfords tools for this reason. However they need to expand their range ask pretty much have everything now
