    I only ever managed to break one of those sliding socket handle things, and that was with a 3m long breaker bar on it and probably a bit of accidental heat treatment

    Nah, anyone can buy the stuff, you just have to find a van (or give one a call to organise to meet) or you can buy online, directly from their website.

    Got a set of Sidchrome ratchet-spanners for Christmas actually. Best gift ever.

    The guy who thought 'em up deserves a pat on the back.

    SP Tool's are relatively new to the scene, but they are great quality. This is why I purchased a complete tool box set for home, so I didnt have to bring my tools from work home with me each time I wanted to play with the car.

    Knipex make the best side cutters, pliers and crimpers

    Kingchrome is the shit. Lifetime warranty on everything. I've got a 1/2" driver set and two sets of their ratcheting spanners both permanently offset and swivel head ones, and they are fucking great.

    At work I don't see many people buying Sydchrome anymore. The general consensus was the quality isn't as good as what it used to be. All the sets the old guys at work have are awesome, but we've seen differences when compared to the newer sets. Everyone of us at work that's slashed out on a good socket set has gone Kingchrome.

    Sidchrome sockets amazing.
    Sunflag screwdrivers = the best, although my ratcheting Snap-On gives them a good run.
    Stahwille spanners awesome!
    I got an Sp rattle gun, i;ve been told its the most powerful one out of all the techs in the workshop lol.
    I've also got a 3/8 cordless Snap on drill that thing is incredible too!

    dewalt is good but everything is so expensive ie batteries are through the roof.

    im using previous top of the range driver hammer drill which i bought off a mate brand new, picked up a couple of brand new 18v batteries and contemplating on purchasing a makita impact driver to add to the kit. great that the batteries are interchangable.

    ryobi also share the idea of sharing batteries across a range of tools, though the quality is not as great as makita's, etc.

    the makita battery impact guns rock!

    about the same size and weight as a cordless drill, but have either 140 or 400nm of power!

    the 18v cordless drill are good too, even have a light incase you dont buy light bulbs in your house
