Default Halfords screwdrivers set 6

Ordered click and collect last night, picked up this morning. Set of 8,. 4 flat blade, 4 pozi (not everyone's choice, i know). This is my second set in 2 or 3 years. This one is for indoors workshop. 6 for the 8, with lifetime guarantee. I have put the receipt in a very safe place, just in case!
Don't know when offer ends though.

I have two sets of these. The red handled flat bladed ones are very good, but the yellow handled pozi-drive ones have a habit of snapping the splines at the business end. They're way too brittle for my liking.

Graham, that is why i keep the receipt! Just in case. Must say, never had a problem and they are often used.
I think the original PO / BT ones, (of which I have an assortment) take some beating.

I’ve found the Halfords Advanced tools to be pretty good as I had to replace my entire car toolkit after it was stolen a few years ago. The screwdrivers and socket sets usually go on offer a couple of times a year, well worth picking up when they are reduced.
