    Really disappointed with the last deal spanners. Some of the smaller AFs are so slack on a Aircraft grade bolt they
    are unusable. I’ve been in since and to be fair they said they would refund

    Cheers @Burdekin, just reserved a set of spanners. Had to do it as a guest to get the £35 as when signed in it wanted to put it through on my trade card at £40 :dontknow:

    Ive just bought a set of their stepless ratchet combination spanners, reduced from £40 to £25. Seem good quality, but time may prove otherwise. I set out with the plan to buy the swivel ratchet spanner set on clearance, but their web site is so awful, kept locking up, by the time I eventually managed to get in, the only set was 200 miles away & not available to be delivered.

    I grabbed one of the 200pc socket sets on the last headsup for £135, that's an impressive set for the money :thumbup:

  9. Halfords put out a profit warning to their shareholders so I guess they are trying to boost their turnover.

    Think a profit warning seems to be the case for most retailers at the moment

    I have that second set, and it's excellent. That said, I don't think I paid more than ~£90 for it - I reckon a lot of Halfords' RRPs are fantasy, just to make the "sale" price seem enticing.

    I have that set of combination spanners, nothing wrong with it, mounted on the wall and used regularily. I paid £35 a year back but never seen them at that price since

    If they can knock them out for £35 and still turn a profit the normal mark up of £65+ is a very nice margin assuming that people do occasionally walk in and buy them at full price.
    Having said that I might have to get myself a set. :)
