I bought a 'cheap' open ended spanner set from Bunnings last year sometime because I didn't bring my kit with me for a job,  the damn spanner broke when I was trying to undo a seized nut.

Bunnings in the early years stocked decent stuff and it was always worth a browse, these days it's just yumcha

My local tool shop stocks Kinchrome, they have 3 walls of the stuff. It's completely different quality to that of Bunnings. The Kinchrome stuff at Bunnings is rubbish............haven't worked that one out yet............

Let's not forget it was purchased 8 years ago. I bet now for $6,000 you get a box full of crap tools from China.

Maybe; but I suspect that's where mine were made anyway. I guess there are different quality grades in anything and it's all about how cheap you want to source something.

The early Sidchrome was junk, made in Kiwi land(sorry Brett). In the 90's they went to a new series which was far superior. I have a lot of spanners and sockets from that series........

I have heard some bad reviews about the TTI stuff lately, but as someone said your kit is a few years old now??? The SCA stuff I purchased years ago was really good stuff, now they have mainly junk.

I still swear by my Metrinch though........   :p

There you go. Maybe I just got lucky, I don't know as I haven't bought much in the way of tools for a long while.

That's right, we had to break out the tools when we took my Ducatis for a ride. More toys that rarely get used and don't work when you want to use them as a result :doh:
That was a great day.  Can't believe how easy the desmo was to ride.  Was like sitting on a couch.

One of these days I'll make some money and relieve you of having to look after the carbon bike. ;)

What about SP Tools?  :potusdiligaf

Never heard of them.  Are they good?  Where do they sell them?
