Socket Sets

Bit pricey for most here, but this is a fabulous tool chest set, I've one and it's well worth the price.

The Halfords Industrial 3 set, this is about 5.5ft tall!

MOD EDIT:

Socket discussion split to its own thread from the Halfords thread.

I left Halfords out of the title to allow BA's from any B&M shop or online.

Any issues please use the report button

If you're anywhere near the border head over to Halfords there, its only €398 for the 3 boxes at the current exchange rate.

Yes, I dont know how I managed to make that mistake. Still, €40 is nothing to sniff at.

Me too - the small 7 or 8 piece torx, skt-only sets. But I've never seen them discounted - only the large, complete sets.

Not sure if it's any good but I think you can buy empty cases from them.

The bigger ones are a mix of metric and imperial.
Imperial drive size is the standard to be fair,

No more bizzare than tyre sizes having metric widths and wheels having radius in inches,

Are the same sets offered each time or does it vary?

The 200 piece is the one to watch and go for. A lot of us here got it for €150 last year. Fabulous kit with everything you could possibly need as a general DIYer.
