    Default buying new sockets..

    I need to replace some knackered male torx sockets and buy some femal torx sockets.

    Ive seen some 7pc & 10pc rails on ebay for around £9 but am a bit worried that sockets at that price wont be up to much. Can anyone recommend a good supplier of things such as sockets (Im not paying snap-on prices)?

    I got a small(ish) set of male and female torx bits a couple of weeks ago. Good range of sizes too.
