It would be interesting for some one to buy a set and do a review (Since screwdrivers are so commonly used by most) any volunteers?

Hello Argyll thanks for the info, looks like the Rolson one and also the workpro one sold in america suspect they may be asian in origin. Noticed them in the brochure when in Aldi on friday

https://www.robertdyas.co.uk/rolson-100 ... gIikPD_BwE
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Rolson-28895-1 ... RKW6GPKMGD

The fact that they are stored in a storage rack is a good selling point but I have the components of set already kicking about so its duplication. Looks a reasonable starting point for a home user

Despite owning a gazillion screwdrivers, bits etc I still look at those offers with envy! This time it's because of the STAND they're all in/on. My screwdrivers inevitably end up piled into a tool bag/box where I can 'dip in' to get the WRONG ONE 90 times out of 100.

I'll be purchasing this next week!

I bought an Aldi Workzone cased screwdriver set a few years back which I keep in the man drawer in the kitchen. It is the first thing I use when I need a screwdriver and the set usually copes with most needs. This looks a good kit but too big for a man drawer

I only use the ratchet one with interchangeable heads. Chez carried out a review of the Bahco one a few years ago. I have two of them plus a DeWalt, Stanley and a Draper one.

I wouldn't use this as it takes up too much room but thought it may be beneficial to some.
