I tend to end up spending money of tools in order of how much it might hurt
if said tool failed, hence I never skimp on ratchets, pri bars and spanners.
The rest of my tools are made up of a range of makes some being sealey.
Sealey premiere tools are good value, they generally do last well. Have a
premiere 3/8 drive wall drive socket set that has been great. Their standard
quality can be a bit poor. Its all relative to what you spend I suppose. All
mine came from Lucas services (LSUK), went in local branch. Its best way of
doing it as you can tell a lot from feel. They usually have all the same
offers on. In fact that would be my advice, find a local dealer in sealey
and go in, atleast that way you will have a bloke to shout at if it breaks.

The halfords proffessional range, I hate to say it, is extremely good.
