    Default advice on screwdriver bit set please.

    Hi guys , I'm looking for a bit set for my shiny new ratchet screwdriver
    But I can't seem to find one with everything I need in it.
    So does anyone know where I can find one ?
    I need torx , multispline , hex , square , and screwdriver bits would be a bonus , but not essential .
    I've looked around alot and can't seem to find the right setup , so I'm hoping one of you know .
    Thankyou.

    P.s - sorry about missing the "d" from the title , my keyboard is pants !

    Try TXMaxx or the tool stall at your local market for a cheap set, Halfrauds/TMC for a range of sets or B&Q/Screwfix. There should be something suitable there!

    You might have to make your own set up if you cant get all what you want as a set.
    Another idea is to look at Screwfix or Toolstation

    I got a set on ebay, around £6 delivered. Pretty good quality, they've come in very handy, I think im more likely to lose them than break them.

    These are the same set

    What would Halfrauds etc charge for such a set? £20? £30? £40?
