    Another reason for 'no' is that Halfords sell the same for £50 ! Linky

    Reason why I say dont go for the 'bargain box'..
    is that to get that many tools at that price,
    the supplier has to compromise on quality...

    This is the one I recommend: Linky

    definalty do as stated above, forget that crappy set you were looking at, i have put my halfords set through some serious punishment and only ever broke a few sockets. also there sets have 1/3 off at the min.

    As above, a good tool kit will have sockets and spanners that are closely matched to the actual size of fitting they have to fit on. With cheaper tools, even if they don't break, the tolerances are no where near as close, and you can stand a good chance of rounding off a nut because they don't fit well enough.

    Cheap tools = false ecomony
