Tbh I've been really busy, not had much time to fly anything and with conditions being crap, hopefully in the new year I'll have some new projects on the go, mostly to do with HAM radio, will certainly fly again soon. FTR I hate FB too   :D Merry Christmas

Found on ebay 21-PIECE PRECISION SET TOOL KIT - SPANNERS HEX KEYS NUT DRIVERS & SCREWDRIVERS

ONLY £2.49 plus £2.99 p&p.  I have found them very useful especially the nut drivers.

Link:-    http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/21-PIECE-PRECISION-SET-TOOL-KIT-SPANNERS-HEX-KEYS-NUT-DRIVERS-SCREWDRIVERS-/190893598743?pt=UK_Hand_Tools_Equipment&hash=item2c72252817

Horses for courses - each to his own .... I have some of these and I found them pretty cr@p  :whistling:
You can';t get enough purchase on them with anything stubborn ... the spinning ends do make them good for spinning stuff in and out quickly - but they are no good for tightening and loosening - in my opinion.

I got some fine tools with decent handles in the end - paid more....but .... it';s the old adage - you get what you pay for  :rolleyes: :azn

I have some very similar from Lidl, they are quite good because they have a cross drilled hole into which a small (tiny) tommy bar fits allows you to get the more stubborn fixings out! The quality of the steel used is ok as well, which is a bonus!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

XH558

So there has to be something inadequate with the original tool if you need said tommy bar  :rolleyes: and a tommy bar that ';tiny'; will probably bend anyway  ::)

My advice - Pay more money - Get some decent tools  ;)

sydtoon

You will also find that the six slotted screwdrivers each have a different diameter handle, I guess to apply the correct torque, As I have found out these small diameters it so easy to shear and then your problems really start  :banghead:

DarrellW

They were about £12 and are properly heat treated CrMo steel so never had a problem with anything bending or rounding off - I never buy cr@p tools, waste of money!!!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!

It';s not often that you see ';Prescision'; and £2.49 in the same sentence!

XH558

Yes you do ... anything and everything made by that quality firm ROLSON  :rofl: :rofl:

How about ';precision'; and ';£1.99'; in the same sentence?  :confused:

I just received this in the post today, and am seriously impressed by the quality for the price:

The photo doesn';t do the quality of the tips justice. And for the price it';s unreal!

SimonS

I had one of those.  It came out of the £1 bin in Tesco.

It lasted about a week before it went to the tip.

Who were you replying to?

That makes sense! - £1 postage, £1product,  £50p wholesale, £25p manufacturing... what do you expect for 25p ?!  :laugh:

Anyway, I';ve already used it to crack open a sat-nav to replace the battery, so it';s paid for itself. And unlike some of these tools that have round edges, or are so soft they get stripped by the screw, I haven';t found that; so it may yet see another use or two!
