Think i saw that halfords professional range ( box sets) half price recently

My mate has one, absolute quality bits of kit

Doubt the ratchets would last very long in the lidl set
Think the halfords one, you can just buy and replace the mechanism in the ratchet if it goes iirc, rather than buying a whole new ratchet

I have three, I keep breaking the boxes :( when the weather is better I will buy a box and put them all in that, they are quality for the price that they are.

Halfords make a lovely spanner.Very nice balance and feel very like a snapon.
By-the-by silverline also have a nice feel.

:lol: In my experience the quality from Lidl can be a bit variable - some items can be very good, others rather less so...

(a bit like the parts that make up a Proton then, lol)
2009 Proton Persona 16V IAFM saloon Automatic Ecologic, (Mica Black - my does-everything chief wheels)
2017 Citroen C3 1.2 PureTech 82 'Feel' hatch, (Ruby Red/Black roof - Wife's new offbeat 12V trolley)
1993 Porsche 968 16V Tiptronic Coupe, (Black, been 'sold' twice now, but no-one actually pays...)

Post Re: Coming this Thursday at Lidl + Aldi
For real jobs as in big work, tight things, Ive got and use Sealey, Draper, Britool, Halfords, Silverline, Record and Snap on there my big tools.

Then for normal medium and smaller jobs I use Lidl, Aldi tools and there fine for that sort of thing.

Any cheaper makes I wont tutch anymore knowing what will last and wat wont etc.

Thats the way I use my tools and learn't whats wat and got a good collection like a garage.

Not much there in my branch of late..but they still have some old stuff to shift..stood looking at the compressor the other morning when I went over early to get some bread and cat food..was really tempted I have to say now I am a bit more mobile these days [fingers crossed] but came away without it..could imagine the comments from her indoors if I had bought it.. :lol: :-$ :smt019

Bit shy of buying a jump starter cos they have been known to fry an ECU with the sudden surge they can give a system..cant remember when I last bought a battery mind you.. :smt017

Must be iffy jump starter then lol , never had issues jump starting with leads or the powerstation. :-D

I think both our cars had batteries about 4 years ago - the evo is a tiny , tiny thing lol
For the coup I got a high cranking diesel battery. :D

I want one, but I want a 24v impact ratchet first.
