Should be called Milwaukee camout.. Absolute junk the milwaukee bits are. Like something from poundland


Ordered yesterday, delivered 22hrs later. Decent little box and magnetic attachment.


This is not a genuine DeWalt item, just crossed referenced it with their database


Well I certainly learn a lot from a lot of experienced people here. I love it. Ultimately you have to make up your own mind, but you'll have a much much better starting point than you otherwise would.


Discussions on tools are great! "This is the best," "no this is the best and here's why," "yeah well I've been using these for years and they have no equal" and so on and so on. 😁

I thought this was a makeup set. Was going to order it for her... She did say she wanted mac


Would buy this but the wife would think it was a MAC makeup set (shock)


Stoopid auto to correct lol.


"£40 Sick and Collect" - Not heard of throwing up before you collect :p


That's strange, I've also have a McAlister socket set (I've previously posted the deal) and I also have a Halfords professional, and the Halfords are far and away the better set. Not slating your deal OP, it is hot and for £ you obviously get more in this than you would a Halfords Professional.

haha claims to be CV, had to return mine as it wasn't any harder then aluminium :)


Yea not one for the professionals but if you only need it 3 or 4 times per year for the basic household jobs, I'm hoping it'll last a lifetime. 3 years isn't too bad for this price.


Have the same set for over 3 years. My box clips are flimsy and can be undone while carrying. Small sockets are flying everywhere inside if no foam insert is in place inside. Tools are of average quality - perfect for basic motoring service and maybe a bit more.


Plenty of good reviews though. Should be ok for the basics


Few poor reviews regarding the quality of the sockets. Cold.

Draper is about as bad as it gets, And checkout the ratchet, The worst sort.


Bertie (5) & Ria (4) decided, 5 deals back to "help" brighten up the picture deal landscape, with their own ideas of what I am posting & finding, best one yet is the Triple QX drawing, took an age for one of them to do it, plus they get a mention in our OP's if they help out.. just hope they do not start "charging" for their service! :S That is good value, I needed something that had what this set has got in it and a 1/2 drive, or would have gone for something like that one, still think some are getting carried away with what this deal is not, its a £65 selling everywhere socket set, for half the price with free delivery! :D


Anyone with Costco membership these may be worth a look less pieces then this I am not 100% on price it was £23 excluding vat but a lot of gear for the money I think that the ratchet is most likely to fail as overtightened nuts or bolts should be undone using a breaker bar as provided in both these sets

I'll bow to your experience on them, all I can go by is the high praise they always got and NO bemoaners. Now it seems moaning about poor quality is common


What a @#&* you are. So when you're assembling your garden table you use your £200 socket set to do up 10 bolts rather than a cheap and cheerful set that you don't mind breaking or snagging up. Fine you you @#&*face


Looks like they just put the price back up. Gonna mark the deal as expired. The website managers probably just come in to hundreds of orders lol and have decided to whack it up again.

Anyone have these? What is the rail like that they sit on- can it be screwed to the wall and how liable are they to fall off it? I have had a couple of sets in the past with plastic trays etc and they are constantly falling out or getting lost

So, new case today. It’s unfortunate my set was at least 10 years old so the layout was different. Not everything fit. I have the 150 piece set. What did Halfords do? They gave me a 200 piece box and a small stanly tool box to put the loose stuff in that would not fit in the new box. £20 worth of stuff for free. Cheers halfords (y)


Case replacements are covered FOC unless the store deem its down to misuse, why would I pay for one :o :o


I also got a case replaced free a few years ago.


They replaced ours free of charge under the guarantee :D


I got my case replaced under the guarantee six months ago. Catches broken after only eight months they tried to say it wasn't covered, but I pointed out that the new empty case was in a cellophane wrapper all on its own, with a cardboard banner inside that clearly stated lifetime guarantee in BIG letters. I wouldn't pay for the new cases the catches are rubbish

Harley_Mick Have a look at those, good bit cheaper with trade card (£33.60 per tray) lifetime warranty. I'd say easily as good as the bluepoint, and you can mix and match


I did see that I dont expect too much but used sets go for around ~150 worst case scenario sell it off again on ebay As for ratchets I have got stanley microtough 1/4 and 1/2, I dont think many people use them but I like how they are not as bulky Will have a look what else I can assemble for similar money as does not have to be a set, goes into a drawer anyway


I'd buy Snap on, but not bluepoint personally.

The ratchet itself is quite compact if you need something cheap for a confined space.


It’s an ok set if you just need something for diy jobs in the house. Picked one up a few weeks back with a discount code for 8 quid.


Sockets might be, only 1/4" but the plastic ratchet certainly is not.


It's £8 if you have a trade card but these sockets are definitely not up to the pro standard of Halfrauds professional standard tools.


When I started on the tools, metric was for 'foreign stuff' only (excited) We had only Whitworth, AF and BA spanners and Sockets at work. I only used metric at home. I'd say 90% of people under 40 have no need for sae tools, yet halfords fill sets with them. Irony is if you dont need a plastic case the sets from halfords are a worse deal than their seperate sets, all metric and all 6 point.

Use Workshop20 on socket sets use workshop50 on tools

The choice of sockets are a bit disappointing. Too many Torx, the long extension bar is 1/2" but you'd likely want it for 3/8, wouldn't have hurt them to stick in an adaptor for 3/8 to 1/2. Still a good price if you've not got any sockets and ratchets.


I was going to weigh in for this, but they regularly come up for £60 from reading up on here.


Anybody wanna trade the imperial sockets for metric?


only works on 90 and 120 according to yesterdays post

Got this last time it was this price and it's a decent set. Just make sure the socket sizes are what you need as they are quite small (I had to buy extra sockets for the car)


Show me where in my comment I called Halfords tools, I said NO thats all, you can't change spark plugs because it doesn't have deep sockets to allow you to do this. I also voted hot for this deal.


Why not? Ive changed spark plugs using this exact ratchet. Nothing wrong with halfords gear. a good builder does not blame his tools!


Get the bigger versions which are intended for heavy use. The ratchet here is part of 8.50 set... it is intended for light use. Buy the more expensive bigger pro toolset halfords offer... theyre great


Halfords is considered a professional set. I have used halforda tools my entire life and theres never been a fault. I think one timw the ratchet system broke but no receipt got a replacement anyway... i dont know if this has professional printed on it but halfords do have professional set which is greatly cheaper than the overpriced snap-on fashion accessories and still just as good and made with the same materials. Do not assume this is unsuitable for everyday professional work because its great for just that, the everyday professional and not to mention super cheap. Snap-on = overpriced fashion accessory Halfords pro tools = working man with common sense tools

Get dealGet deal



AVOID The air tools in Lidl- they are of SPECIALLY dreadful quality... Same really as most of their other tools!


I use it working on motorbikes, speeds up a lot of jobs and can fit where guns can't.


Might be useful in confined spaces where you can't get a regular ratchet in, but otherwise can't see the point of an air ratchet with 1/4 inch drive. I only really use my 3/8 drive one for removing exhaust stud nuts where access is very restricted. Will probably buy one anyway, though. Can never have too many tools :)


i mean, its OK, but why would you need a 1/4" pneumatic driver which only outputs 40NM?

Just picked up the last one at Deeside well worth the money feels a good quality set ratchets feel heavy duty doesn’t feel like cheap stuff to me well pleased thanks for the heads u


Sort of, but that's not quite the point I was trying to make. But using your TV analogy, I might be able to make the point a bit better: Panasonic 55" TV = £500 (not reduced) Tesco Technika 55" TV = £500 (not reduced) The Technika gets reduced to £300 and gets hailed as a deal, because it was originally £500, but it was never worth £500 to start with, and £300 is probably it's correct value. So it's worth £300 but that doesn't make it a bargain, just it's actual value.


I kind of agree with your argument but that is the case with every thing you buy. isn't it? I purchased a LG 3D smart TV few months ago from tesco with original price of £500+ and I purchased it for less than 200£. sometimes retailers/manufacturer lower the price to get rid of stock and that is when you grab a bargain.


So I bought this pack and they had the right size in the pack


It's heat from me, was really tempted by the red & black handles, checked I had a set in the workshop, I did, had a chicken pie then pulled myself together, alls good now, phew that was a close one!
