    Default 206 piece ratchet set from costco

    Anyone got one of these? Looking at them right now, £77.98 inc vat made by Crescent, I've been considering the halfords 150 pc set which is currently £99.99, really considering one of these now though...

    Ignore the number of "pieces" (because often it's a high number just because of lots of little screwdriver bits and allen keys), choose the one that suits your needs best, and take into account useful things like ratchet closed spanners, how many deep sockets, etc etc.

    I've seen this and considered it a few times. Yanks use a lot of imperial stuff. Don't remember seeing any rachet spanners included. The three you get in the halfords set (6 common sizes) are all you really need. I've got the 150pc halfords set. Only criticism is mostly 3/8 drives which is high torque friendly and for vectras suspension a deep 18mm and 21mm spanner would come in handy. Lifetome guarantee on all but ratchets is great too.

    Ps spell check on overdrive 3/8 torque unfriendly! Pps take 150pc to factory and everyone asks about it and it gets used a lot and gets so right abuse. Highly recommended

    I've got the Costco set - great quality but as stated above its 50:50 metric and imperial. Comes in a handy and robust case if you need that. It's normally on offer a couple of times a year - mine was nearer £60 from memory. Pic attached
