Where do most people get there tools?  Are there any makes to get or avoid?
Are there any decent sets to buy?
I'm currently looking at the Halfords professional range and this half price set,http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/product_storeId_10001_catalogId_10151_productId_173083_langId_-1_categoryId_165572

That's funny I have that very set. I can recommend very highly. Has virtually every bit you will ever need. Most of my tools are from halfords over the years. Just stick to known brands and you can't go wrong. Avoid unknown brands made in china and the like.

Reviving this thread - Halfords have a sale of socket sets and tool storage on at moment - looks like some good savings.

I have had a 200 piece socket set of Halfords Professional for many years and they are good quality and have saved me a mint,  all I added was a 600mm breaker bar.

Some people will only consider you an expert if they agree with your point of view or advice,  when you give them advice they don't like they consider you an idiot

If I need something for a one-off job I'll quite happily buy some cheap no-brand ebay special, if I'm likely to use a tool regularly I tend to buy trusted brand names which are likely to last and usually a better fit. I have some snap-on and britool tools that I bought as an apprentice 35 years ago, still going strong.
