My head hurts trying to figure out what on earth you're trying to say!

Halfords Bingo has been won early on this one (trade card and imperial sockets are rubbish), may as well close the comments now. Note, the full house (i.e. I got these cheap on black Friday) was not available for this game, but thanks for playing.

mattclarkie

If you only want sockets and only care about one type, say 3/8, the Halfords Advanced Modular Trays are better value because you won't get lots of hex bits etc bulking out the set.

The easiest way to find out how they work: plug in a light (switched on) to the timer socket. Set some levers around the dial up and some down. Then plug in the timer to a wall socket. Now turn the dial clockwise and you'll see when the light comes on and off. Once you know that, set your timer. Hope this helps.

I bought one of these, I can't figure how to use one of these and I'm very good with trying to figure out new things usually, so frustrating. I wanted to use it for my radiator to I wanted it on for about 2 hours and to turn off after that.

Don't get me wrong, I love my TP-Link for some things, but a simple timer plug is more than enough for other things.

Good at this price with Halfords half price deal on socket sets. An amazing set to have as it’s so versatile and handy.
paulandpam1

The cases used to be also covered by the lifetime guarantee, About 7 years ago my case locking tabs broke off and they gave me a new case but I've noticed they are no longer covered by the guarantee so I suppose they had a lot of returns and withdrew the warranty.

TWD

Mine wasn't the advanced, but I imagine the cases are of the same quality. I've put a bit of duct tape from the bottom over the hinge and onto the top, to hold it all together, and that's done its job for the last 10ish years, so can't complain to much.

DodgeySolenoid

Got this about 10 months ago for £14. So the £60 RRP looks ridiculous and, £30 not such a brilliant deal, considering I also got a 1/2" set for £34.

ukez

The Halfords advance tools are cool for the most part but the boxes they come in always fall apart; they make them that way so they can get you to spend more money when you come to them for a replacement. (y)

Only if the backbox in your wall is large enough to fit the extra depth that USB based gang sockets normally need, otherwise its hassle. However someone mentioned this model includes a spacer, but these look a bit hacky when fitted in my opinion (Spacers).

Hmmm so so they can be a bit tricky if there is 3 cables present at socket box

mctrials23

Yep, found this with some I installed into our old flat. Ended up channelling out solid concrete walls and installing deeper back boxes as a result. A massive faff when all said and done. Put a couple of LAP USB 3.1A into our new house and they are much lower profile and were a 1:1 replacement for the old sockets which made it much easier.

I was disappointed the it had imperial sides as well. Yes I know you need them for old cars & bikes, but I'd rather of had more metric sizes. It's still a good ratchet & worth it when under £10. Heat from me OP :)

picnick

You keep justifying the hundreds you have spent on tools. I taken half an engine apart (and reassembling) with ratchet spanners from Aldi, a cheap socket wrench from Machine Mart and cheap sockets. I previously owned Halfords ratchet spanners and compared to the Aldi set I have, they were not worth the extra money in hindsight. I agree with buy cheap buy twice for some products but you really need to update your views and also realise that the average home mechanic isn't going to go out and spend £300 on tools when they have everything they need for 17 quid.

picnick

Under heavy use, yes but I don't think this is aimed at professional mechanics. I have used cheap ratchets on many occasions, some of which are indeed broken but they still work enough for most jobs.

ficosaneil

I've bought plenty of "cheap" tools over the years and never had one of these life threatening injuries that scare mongerers on here often warn of. If it breaks inside of 12 months take it back.

First post so go easy.. Kamasa 40 Piece Screwdriver set, in-store at Costco Oldham. Decent price for the amount of bits you get. Cheapest on Amazon is a 23pc for 14.99.
Pisnahuj

I used to have (fierce) a web page in Russian how it actually began and what connections they had between each other.. not sure where they were actually made might even be Japan not sure... Would be interesting to know that.. And not sure about the quality now on these tools but few years back they were good. (y)

lemo

Is this true? Very interesting if it is but I cannot find anything via google to verify. Early Kamasa tools were made in Japan and good quality. Think they are now trading on the reputation of the brand name but selling low quality Chinese stuff. Just what I've read, not claiming to have any facts.

championadam

Use Kamasa spanners every day at work; they're really very decent and IMHO an absolute bargain.

Pisnahuj

Kamasa tools actually were supposed to be only for one car Kamaz from Russia because it is one hell of a beast and it is hard to work on because of the beefy steel bolts. Good quality tools these!

I thought torque wrench are required to ensure bolts and nuts are tightened to the correct nm?

supertouring

I think they are manufactured by the same company that make the American Craftsman brand as I once had a craftsman branded socket in a set of Halfords Pro. So that could also be a reason for the imperial sizes.

tan159

Torque tools are there to make a rusty bolt even harder to remove by rounding it's edges.

stealth666

I hear you, but it means you're buying half the set....

I need a 1/2'' drive and a 30 & 32mm socket, which I think this set does not include, right? Sorry I'm completely new to the concept of torque wrench tools
