    £4.99 well wasted.
    I was tempted once and bought a set as a disposable set for shitty jobs. They pretty much all snapped and bent within a couple of weeks. I think they were made from finest gouda.

    A lot of sets seem to have Philips rather than Pozi still, still used on a lot of equipment though.

    I use these ones all the time and they seem to be acceptable low quality.
    I have not had any problems with breakages but the decorative colour panels peel off and the tips do seem to round off fairly easily but not too badly. However for £4.99 it is not a problem to get more.
    I do have decent quality screwdrivers for the 5mm slotted and modulo screwdrivers as they are the most used.
    I do also have a lot of the aldi 6.5mm slotted as they are rarely used!

    Thank Richard constructive for reply got some SDS very long drill bits from ALDI before once gone through with our standard drill bits come in useful for the money when used occasionally to get out of s......t.,got pk. of 10 fine marker pens for 89p just as good as Sharpie pens for marking cable ends.

    Yep the long drills are going strong after years with me too. I can also recommend the dry diamond core set. £30 with 3 core cutters, 2 arbors, pilot bit, and drift pin. The 107mm is a bit on the tight side mind you.

    Yes Tel got one of those in 10.8v as on site use it only occasionally and does its job I think the moral of the thread is if you only use things now and again some of these items are worth it however for everyday used tools (and for tool tarts like Pete) its best to go for good quality and paying a bit more.

    For ducting. I usually use it for 100mm fan vents.
    Plastic flexi usually goes through as does the slim wall solid duct supplied with some fans. Thick wall rigid duct or metal flexi duct usually needs a slightly bigger cut though.
