    Whats peoples opinion on this?

    Hi all have been after a socket set for a while, but i have seen this in Halfords nearly bought it today but thought i would wait seems good price reduced from 200,

    Any good ?

    just after a set which would contain most bits i would need for simple straight forward jobs, thought it seem good value? with all the other bits like allen keys star drive bits ect, cheers Oski

    Im a maintenance engineer by trade, and iv used teng, snap-on, draper, halfords tools and i would recommend them.
    Good quality stuff and i think they come with a lifetime warranty. Id buy myself that exact same set but got too many tools already!

    its always handy to have a small tool kit at home for simple jobs, that kit looks good and alot better then the one i have at home, im a mechanic and when im at home its so annoying when you need a tool that you no you have but cant get to because its locked away in the workshop. i needed a 8mm spanner today and my kit at home didnt even have one.

    I have used a set of these myself.

    I can confirm that they are top quality. I am sure that they may be made geodore or a similiar company.

    I have used these in industrial fitting, so for home use, they will be if anything, to good

    Also, as stated , the life time warranty is the deal sealer !!

    Nearly bought a set for myself last weekend when i saw them on offer, but my missus decided i didnt need them !

    Totally agree with everyone else. I got a set a couple of years back and its excellent and lifetime warranty apparently so you can just take bits back for replacements but doubt you would need to. I think i got a 150 set but i dont think they do it anymore.
