  1. This socket set was advertised in the weekly e-mail I get from Lidl.

    Looks like a well stocked good quality set and the six sided sockets are very impressive although the price is more impressive still.

    We need pictures when you start using it , I could do with a set like this just for dismantling stuff.

  7. Sure thing...I'll put some up.

    It seems like a really well designed set....6 sided sockets to avoid rounding off nuts and bolts if you have to use some force...unlike most sockets in the Halfords sets which are 12 point...all sockets are metric which is all you need for Hondas, so no paying for and storing superfluous imperial sockets like you do with the Halfords sets....the ratchets are 1/2 inch and 1/4 inch as I thought which again is great because in reality these are the two I find I use not the 3/8....and a few extended sockets which sometimes come in handy in awkward places.

    This item will no doubt come round again next year at Lidl if anyone doesn't go for it this time.

    A good buy for £38 I thought.
