If I were more bodily able I would be jumping at getting one..that spray gun is good value as well and well handy for spraying all manor of things..I dont use air tools and am more of a spanner man so that part doesn't come into play for me..

A friend of mine has just bought a Clarke one and his plan is to plumb it into another bottle (i.e. a Gas bottle) to expand the capacity. It'll take ages to fill, but should be more versatile.

11 stone wet through, a bit of a pi55 head, and a little difficult to understand, but still decent entertainment.......

It's more like it - But you can get better ones (more powerful - around 5hp) for that kinda money as I looked at it today. ;) Also have an impact gun to go with it , chipping hammer also.

Having seen Nige's cig lighter impact gun and I've used one of them in the past from a mate , I may well stick and get that type as I don't have room for the compressor.

They weren't double ended ones tho were they..I have three sets of these altogether in metric and AF..none from aldi or Lidle though and find them useful if you have long studs to screw a nut onto in confined spaces ..

Would have the double ended ones anyday. Much better imo. But if you can get enough of the single ones in all the sizes then does the same job at end of the day, but would think it works out more expensive

I got a set of the double ended ones off ebay. Didnt need to be great quality as there only used when needed, if a socket fits, i prefer that, but they are great for tight spaces. Quality tool !!

I spent a little extra and got the Halfrauds flexi head ones (I have a set of rigid ones JCB) but the flexi heads allow extra articulation - especially when getting at the inlet manifold. #-o :lol: They also come with the socket/screwdriver attachments. :-D

Yeah, those were pretty cool, got to see them in action the other week

I do like the idea of the flexi head ones. Mine are offset, which is good and it has a switch to tighten / untighten depending which way round you have it. Much better than plain straight.

96 piece.

Hlafords is like a bajillion £ for that size...although I already have a beefy socket set so I dont really need a new one.
