Half of this is imperial!
200 piece is £125 with trade card. Decent quality tools coupled with a lifetime warranty
Good Friday soon, unless desperate could get a cheaper price. My 200 piece only cost me £127.
I think I paid £150 for my set at ‘half price’ which is always on!
Good tools, nowhere close to half price and not even the best buy from Halfords.

So much easier to carry around a couple of good quality adjustable pliers.

Spanners have their place. The heads of the are smaller than adjustables so can get in restricted spaces. Also the ring side has more angles it can be used at (again useful in restricted spaces). Finally I’ve never found a adjustable spanner that doesn’t have play in the screw and jaw which means it doesn’t fit the bolt head exactly and so if applying g a lot of force to turn the head there is a risk of rounding off the head (and scuffing your knuckles!). You can get a lot more force through a ring spanner which grips it all the way round and far more snug

I thinks it’s not a bad price - heat!

I agree with ynos. B&Q are owned by the same company that own Screwfix. Screwfix have a brillant website and have click and collect off to a tee.
B&Q have a naff website that says up date your browser, does not always go through to payment, sometimes you think you have not completed when it has. When you get to the store their stock control is awful and takes ages to find the items if at all.
I am amazed B&Q are still in business. or why they do not implement Screwfix system.

This deal looks like a bag of spanners.
Have ordered several things off here at B&Q .They take your money and then you call to pick up at your local store and they haven't got your order and blame there ordering system.You then have to wait for your money back .AVOID

Basically the tool will work but if used every day all day might break alot sooner than a more expensive tool. So many DIYer may use it once or twice and can't justify spending a lot on tools.

Well I know everyone loves these but I have a gripe with them. The …Well I know everyone loves these but I have a gripe with them. The ratchets are short so it is difficult to get leverage with them (probably helps not getting warranty claims I suppose). I had trouble getting the wheel nuts loose on my car the other day for this very reason."Use a breaker bar" I hear you say - set comes with one ; tried to use it - no longer than the ratchets so no use. Otherwise fine


I see your point, but I think these are about the normal length for rachets. The T bar (it isn't really a breaker bar) is about the same length but obviously a bit more robust, so you could have extended it with the 19mm combination spanner to make a lever about 18" long. That would normally remove wheel nuts, unless they have been done up really tight (in which case it is probably worth having a proper breaker bar or wheel brace to hand).

I had a look at the set I bought this afternoon and I can't find much to dislike, apart from a personal thing that it still has a few imperial sockets that I will probably never use (as I said above, my American Craftsman tools are predominantly imperial sizes, which were fine in Va, but not much use here).

I have collected the tool kit - and I must say I'm very impressed for the money, it is every bit as good quality as the Craftsman tools I bought back with me after living in the USA (those tools still work well, but the majority are imperial sizes so they are less useful here than they were in Virginia).

I think this set was a bargain, but clearly the 'voice of the body of the kirk' here on HUKD disagrees with me and has voted the item slightly cold. This doesn't worry me in the slightest, but it has reminded me why I don't often bother posting items on this forum - I don't think I will do so again.

Mines even better, went in with a normal length 3/8" ratchet (came in one of the sets when they was £10 something) because the quick release wasn't working so it wouldn't hold a socket. He tried to give me a 1/2" ratchet at first and i said its 3/8" which he said thats just the handle size thats 1/2"..... Anyway he picked up a 3/8 swivel head ratchet which was £24.99 and gave us that.
