All Screwdriver Discounts, Offers and Sale - May 2020
Don't forget to get one of these... https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00K71DVNU/ref=cm_sw_r_em_apa_i_HiU0EbCY7NRX2 Genuinely a life saver for cutting wrapping paper at Xmas if you have a lot to do!
I owned this exact model. They had a deal on a whole ago when it was £19.99 and came with a £20 pizza express voucher.
Does that have a lock on it so you can use in manual mode?
I got a IXO 6th gen for £36 a couple of months from the Amazon Warehouse and it's fantastic.
Isn't the idea of insulated screwdrivers that if something is live or becomes live unexpected then it still offers a additional level of protection? Also Pz screws are used throughout components on nearly all modern day fuse boards/distribution panels. Anyone working on electrics should always use insulated tools and a precaution.
With neon screwdrivers you also get false negative readings even false positives. Therefore a volt stick, voltage tester or DVM would be better choice and just as quick.
Three wires out of a light switch, you tell me a faster way to test live luv x
Google it and find out why they should be banned...
I use one, they still sell them everywhere... if they were that bad they would not... fastest way to check

Copy the url from any amazon deal and paste it into this website, it’s limited at the moment as they have done some deal with Amazon but still gives you some data, normally you get a lot more www.camelcamelcamel.com (y)
Whete did u get that data from
Standard price at hardware stores as well (bought it £9.99 at B&Q a few years ago)
Thats the standard price, I have had it cheaper in the past
Gone down to £16.66 now
Halfords regularly do offers on the tool range. Lifetime guarantee. Proves that old saying. "Buy cheap,buy twice"
Better off getting a good make socket set with all the bits and ratchet handles. My old Aldi Work Zone one is still going strong and used for e.g. putting anchor screws in concrete.
Heat for the quantity, but you would be much better off getting 3 or 4 quality screwdrivers - they'll last AND do a better job. You can always add to a good Bosch Pro / Snap On set
Proper kit (party)
garbage , the bits always come loose and fall out of the shaft.
Some quartz watch movements have a little latch with small screw holding the battery.
Many times... Never used a screwdriver. I use proper kit.
You never taken a link out of a watch?
You’re very welcome. Those Sealeys will see you through. Concrete is a challenge for sure. Depending on size/depth SDS may be the way forward.
Thanks for the recommendations. Tried drilling into concrete using a set that came with a 'tool kit' and after ten minutes I was as deep as a drawing pin head.
Thank you! I'll be ordering some of these
These masonry bits are tough as nails, and chew through anything: Sealey AK5708 Tungsten Carbide Tipped Masonry Drill Bit Set 8pc amazon.co.uk/dp/B001SFZWD6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_H4oYEb2BW0XXT For standard drill bits, I have these and they’re amazing, despite being a bit expensive: axminstertools.com/25-piece-high-speed-steel-ground-drill-bit-set-200286 I’ve had success with these in the past if you’re looking to spend less: Makita D-47173 18Pc Mixed Drill Set Metal Box, Blue/Black/Silver amazon.co.uk/dp/B00YRDAAHE/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_p7oYEbZWNDRJ9
Ugh. You use a comma before “but” where you are using two independent clauses. My grammar was correct. Sharing my experience is, by any definition, contribution to the community. I wasn’t slating you, I was suggesting that the product isn’t necessarily the best way to spend your money. You were irrationally defensive and aggressive. Anyway, time to let it go. I take it is a personal failure that I let you drag me into a pointless debate.
Yes drill bits unless SDS are pretty universal
Will these drill bits all fit with this: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/bosch-cordless-18v-15ah-li-ion-brushed-drill-driver-1-battery-psr-1800-li-2-50-delivered-with-code-at-bq-3468541?page=1#comments-last thanks!
If you pay 20~25£ per 5-6 drill bits you will feel the difference in wear. If you had this for 4 years then you most likely are not a holiday diy guy because this set would wear my bits in old brick house like nothing.
It's a good set for a DIYer, I've had mine 4 years and the case is well made very robust and organised. Replace the bits as and when needed as even the best make ones are wearable items.
Absolutely agree. I've rinsed through one of these and you're left with a packet of freak sized bits you can't do anything with. The 6, 7, 8 masonry bits go on the first use.
Now back in stock - just ordered. (y)
Cheaper on their website - £29.99 https://www.mylek.co.uk/mylek-18v-cordless-li-ion-drill-with-led-work-light
We use these in the school where I work. They are very basic. Not much torque for long screws. Ok for kids to abuse.
Good price for a variable speed drill/driver. Great for anyone who needs a "general use" tool for around the house.
Cheers OP, heat added and ordered for simple household stuff (y)
These are absolutely fine and will get most jobs done mainly household ,of course they are not gonna last long on site work and impact drivers then your going to want better quality and much more money
These bits will be made out of cheese, I’m surprised Makita out there name on such cheap generic bit sets. Cheap their brand
I'm normally all over makita stuff but I really don't rate their bits. I don't think they are any different to kits half this price. I wouldn't waste my money on this
Its useful when you need to undo a screw but access is restricted so you can't use a traditional screwdriver. For the price its worth having in your tool box, it may get you out of a spot and save a lot of time and money, though if I needed it regularly I would upgrade to something better.
Had a similar one to this that I used for a while, helped me out a few times,robust enough for price, I'm a heating engineer. Upgraded to Bahco 2058S26 now though
Offset Ratchet Screwdrivers. So hot right now.
Thanks nice find
Same item same seller £3.15 on eBay with free p&p for those who don't have prime. Item no.392326177386
To give you some idea of the quality, or lack of it, I got one of these supplied with my 'Outsunny' rattan garden set - We made it through some of the bolts before it broke in 2! Trash, nothing more nothing less.
Silverline hand tools have a lifetime guarantee, so should be quite good
Durable all steel?? Without specifying the spec? In other words recycled beer n bean cans. Buy cheap and pay twice. Pay a tenner for a quality set that will last a lifetime rather than these cheap ones where even chocolate screws will end up burring the bits
Looks like now finished ... Over £8 for me :(
i had one before, was reallly handy at times. Not very strong ratchet. Gone up now tho
You can get wera for this price.
Haha, interesting hobby you have. Keep watching that paint like a good boy.
Sorry did you say something, I was just watching some paint drying
Don't need to ask anyone bud. I checked out the Halfords website for myself. Simples really.
This is a "Daily Deal" from eBay maybe you should ask them.
Hold out for the slim fit ones you get from Wiha or Wera. Trust me you won’t regret it. You don’t get the protusion in the insulation sleeve as it’s incorporated into the blade
It's a Ferrex one from Aldi and it's fine with the normal drill bit it's just the 1/4 hex bit holder/bit that are a bit wobbly.
I only got this because I wanted to change quickly from drilling to screwing without undoing the chuck but when I'm drilling the drill bit is a bit wobbly and the drill is vibrating like hell. Has anyone else experienced the same issue.
I’m sure I paid almost this for only the round shank multi material bits and it didn’t have 3 or 4mm either. Heat!
Now £19.99 from £22.99
not really I wouldn't recommend it its cheap quality and I had a similar set most of the sockets just crack under any load/resistance and in the end the spring in the handle broke and the whole thing just fell apart
Is this a good set for someone that owns zero screwdrivers? Ie. Will it cover most common uses or is it more specialist than a regular set if flat head/Phillip's screwdrivers?
very useful having these around when needed
This normally is £12.99 but yes it was £11.04 at some point. This is a good price, has good reviews too.
cracking price just bought
More than good enough for tinkering on the car/ round the house. The bits went straight in the bin but thats because I have a Wera set (y)
This one any good?
As soon as I saw pic the first thing that came to my mind was sturdiness.... Don't think it'll last a few jobs that... More like a toy that thing... Sure a screw driver would do better.
Yes. I got one a couple of months back to go help build various furniture. It charges quickly, the battery lasts ages and does the job its intended to.
Is this any good?
Pound shop quality. Buy yourself some plasters if trying to undo anything really tight with this lot. Cheap tools plus plasters and possibly a hospital visit vs half decent tools = less pain. Voted hot for price only. Hotukdeals should let you vote twice......once for price and once for quality, giving a true temperature?
Good find. Will give this a miss in that case. Not gonna vote either way!
FYI from Halfords Reviews: Budget toolset 6 years ago 1/2 inch ratchet broke as soon as I used it.1/4 inch ratchet broke during use. No 13mm spanner,the most used spanner in any toolbox. No long reach 13mm socket No 1/2 inch extension bar. Bottom tray contains rawplugs etc,this is IMO what takes the total pieces up to 275. Disappointing product. Definitely a budget tool-set and will not stand up to being used for long. This set would be better without the bottom draw contents and replacing those pieces with the item I suggested. budge61 · Reviewed on Halfords
Not sure about the quality but if it’s decent then it’s a good deal. Never heard of the brand before though. Funny how you might get one or two tools from places like Halfords and they last you a lifetime and the other 90% break in the first few times of use. Heat for the price.
