    For an imperial set you can't beat a SHORT STUBBY KING DICK.

    I actually have a couple myself. SPANNERS that is. King Dick actually sponsor a couple of bike teams over in the UK.

    All jokes aside, you've got all the advice you need in the thread now. Go middle of the range tools for home use. Don't have to spend a fortune. Kincrome are OK. Just don't buy cheap chinese cast rubbish. Whatever spanners you get make sure you grab forged spanners. Cast shit will snap and injure you or fuck the heads/sockets of your bolts.

    Dunno what brand those tools are but what I learnt after buying lots of cheap tools is that the cheap stuff uses soft metal and they don't last. I reckon you're best to price some of the quality brand tool sets from different shops, spend a bit more and get some good tools. I bought a sidchrome set. You can also buy individual tools and sockets for the good brand stuff 

     These look like Kinchrome

    All you need is cable ties and wd40.. if it moves and shouldn’t cable tie the cunt, if it doesn’t move and should spray the cunt with wd40.

    Your welcome :)

     And a hammer to belt the shit out of the one that dont move after wd40

     Repco have some good tool kits on sale at the moment that are on clearance. just go into your local Repco and ask what Repco kits do they have on clearance. They are covered by lifetime warranty

     Would be a small kit in that brand, I know.

    You don't have to be brand loyal, I got all kinds of brands, as long as its good quality all is well.

    I bought crap, broke the crap, bought more crap *100 then only bought kincrome or better.  No more breaking shit - they just work.

    No matter what tool kit you buy you'll need the tool you don't have anyway, so just get a good starter kit and buy them as you need them - best you can afford..within reason.

    Finally decided to get a full set of tools, have mostly metric with a few a/f as needed but can never find the right size when I need it so got a full set with storage.
