    Hmm, personal issues with Halfords here methinks.

    Not being funny, but out of the multitude of mechanics (home, work & race) on here we all agree its good stuff, bar yourself.

    Now I am a tool in management!
    No offence taken Shameless!
    I too came off the tools many years ago. I am the MD of my company now and am not a tool snob by any means.
    I just believe in buy the best you can afford.

    When i get rid of my 24k a year job and get 100k a year job I will buy snap-on tools.

    untill then I will leave the 300 digital snap-on torque wrench where it is and use my 80 Halfords pro one.

    To get the equivelent of what I have in snap-on would cost well over 10k. Ive only spent about 1500 on tools in halfords including the chests to put them in.

    If you purchase the Pro 7-drawer ball bearing chest with the Pro 5-draw tool cabinet together they'll do the pair for 200.

    At the end of the day if you use the right tool for the job and use specific torque figures (as any engineer would do) then most makes of tools will serve just fine, and i'm not talking blackspur but you get my drift............
