Has anyone come across a decent set that doesn't bend like the chinese junk?
Snap on. Mines ages old. May be a part number but they will have it on their site
They were on offer recently.
Does that mean the snap on man used lube?!
price of mine it felt he went in dry
Snap on. Best I’ve ever used. Mine literally don’t go blunt. I’ve got a mini set and a few big ones.
£34.80 instead of £53.88 on the website. Slightly more palatable!!
That’s not actually that bad. Sub tenner per pick
Silver Steel and a bit of heat treatment then add a handle if you have the time.
I use picks every day and can confirm, Snap on. They are not indestructible though and I have broken a few, they are for me a consumable. I have a few PB Swiss but cant find them anymore, more expensive than Snap on but really nice.
I have a set of dental picks that i cant wear out..use them solely when doing brake caliper rebuilds digging out the old seals

I have a few dental picks and use them on my teeth!
Snap on do well. There’s a funny shaped one (not the hook, right angle or straight one) which you’ll probably use 90% of the time and this can be broken but they’re pretty good. New blades are a quid or two I think so not eye watering, though my guy doesn’t tend to charge good customers.
I think winchboy may have a spare set I will ask him when he surfaces from his slumber, I suspect it will be as soon as he smells the bacon.
Absolutely spot on. The most useful of all the picks.
I have 2 RS sets.
They are still going strong, so I would get them again.
Snap on as others have already suggested but I needed some when I was away in our motorhome and “picked” up (excuse the pun) a cheap set that have been surprisingly good , think they may be Rolson ? Don’t even think about the set sold by Machinemart they are made of case hardened rice with insecure handles! although I’ve been using the right angled one for scraping out grout , it seems better than a grout rack ?
Had a couple of them in an whole RS kit bought by a company I use to work for back in the day, not cheap that whole kit.
The only thing I remember breaking were their cross head screwdrivers for some reason, one of the four bits sheared off in time.
Sad thing is it’s probably cheaper to buy even snap on ones
I’ve used a broken just about every make. That was until I found Ullman U.S.A.
I cant remember where I found the first one, spent ages looking then emailed them, a few days later a pack of ten arrived. That was over 20yrs ago now. I still havent used some of them.
Just looked. Lost 1, used and modified 5. 5 brand new
That comment deserves to be deleted!
