What you need is this…

The 2017 advent calendar kit was seriously good and a very useful set. Can be found for about £50.

That’s the one. Superb set. I couldn’t resist one after seeing @edd9000’s.


#354

I’ve just ordered that.

Can we all just stop for a while please?


#355

Anyone on the lookout for a 1/4" socket set could do a lot worse than this

Britool sockets and drivers are very good indeed.


#356

By all accounts the modern Britool stuff is no where near the old stuff. :frowning:


#357

Really?

Oh well, scratch that then.

Bit like Elliot Lucas pliers then. Had an old pair that were perfect but they got nicked. Bought a new pair and they’re bang average.

This

Yeah, apparently so from what I’ve been reading. Enough to put me off. I think their ‘expert’ range is supposed to be decent.

Toptul are a brand I recently heard about and get good reviews - v. similar to Facom, but often the Facom version is cheaper, lol.

Even the Lindstrom stuff now feels not as good as my original made in Sweden stuff. Sigh…

When I was doing rallies back in the late '80s it was Britool and Snap-on that were the go to. Also an American brand that I can’t remember the name of at the minute, Pro-tool or something. May be that they were sold or distributed by the local Morgan garage at the time. Not that Morgans were good for rallying or anything:scream:, just the local agency, McDonald’s in Lanchester, also sold the tools and had a rolling road so after every engine rebuild I ended up there!
