Being a sparky, I tend to want the best tools (or close to it) for my job, and that does include some Bahco tools. I have a shifter, hacksaw and files, and all of them are still going strong.

Bahco is a pretty good brand. They must rate their kit if it has a lifetime warranty like some of the other leading brands (kincrome and sidcrome). What is it that your friend is after? is it just a basic tool kit like in the link you posted? Crescent is another decent brand to be looking at, that is not on the too expensive side.

As a Plumber i've had nothing but Bahco Hacksaws, and they have worked excellent, and i've always gone by the theory of "buy cheap, buy twice".

IMO most tool maufactor's have a niche.... and i was buying spanners and sockets, Kingchrome, Sidchrome or Snap-on would be my first port of call.

Hi, I'm the friend who couldn't post. The set of tools from the link is the one that I am looking at buying.

I usually pay a significant amount more for tools as I've used cheap tool before and I end up having to do more work due to them rounding off bolts and screws :)

But right now I'm extremely broke but need a decent set of tools to get me going.

This set just seems like its very good value as all i really need is the socket wrench kit and the spanners.

Has anyone actually used this set before?

    • OK, buy MSD. You be the guinea pig. It's not as if 6x$95 is all that much more than $470 anyway.
    • Mega effort mate well done.  If it makes you feel better... - My new front and rear mains leaked immediately, meaning I had to redo timing again and remove gearbox to replace.  - When testing the rear main ws good I had the selector cables off the box (box in neutral, no drive shafts in) but there was enough vibration for it try and grab a gear at idle speeds and it spat the diff shims out, so box had to come out again... There's always "something". 
    • Oh that is my favourite, done it more than once
    • Can't forget them. Have spent the better part of the last 2 years in Bunbury. Any longer and I would have to get one of each.
    • Hit it hard last night, was in the shed till 2:30am. Had to get everything ready to try fit engine today as neighbour is going away tomorrow. This happenned today      Was going smoothly, till it wasn't. Had to lower the sway bar, remove engine mounts to get the engine to its spot and then refit everything. Head drain also created some clearance issues but got there in the end. Some idiot put the drain return on the sump virtually where the engine mount is. Hose fits on but is less than ideal, going to have to revisit it and fit a 90° fitting. Had some hiccups last night too with getting the flywheel and gearbox on. Firstly forgot the sandwich plate, so had to remove clutch and flywheel again. Then gearbox went on smoothly but then realised new block has an alignment dowel in the same spot as gearbox. GB off again to remove said dowel. Cnut. Anyway, it's in now. AC and PS pumps refitted, tail shaft bolted up as well. Left to do is reconnect all harnesses and plugs. Looks like a big mess ATM. Fit dump pipe, radiator, shifter, intake piping and associated bits, air box fill, afluids and hopefully fire it up. Looks like couriers please has lost my break in oil again. Useless pricks. Looks like I'll just get whatever mineral oil is on special at super shit auto. Hopefully it will actually run after all this or I'm going to burn it, lol.
