Excellent choice Rossgo (y)

The choice of black finish may also help you avoid them being "mistaken" as belonging to someone else. ;)

Fwiw I would strongly suggest that one of the first things you do to your set, is to clearly mark the "Lid" on the opening face. -Whilst I realise you're not an incompetent old fool like me, and would therefore not frequently open it upside down, it will nontheless make it quicker & easier for you to always place it "lid up" prior to opening it.
Some paint, or even Duct-Tape will take far less time to apply than scrabbling round looking for dozens of 1/4 drive sockets that have rolled for improbable distances in all directions. Let alone the mind numbing task of replacing them all in their correct order.
Good idea StMarks. Although after looking at the set it has a clear top and bottom. The only people to use this will be me and my dad and somehow he'll prob end up saying its his anyway as he has done with my other tools . I suppose if it's all staying inside his house I guess he can claim it

It looks and feels good quality. Also it was brand spankers still inside it's box, last one in the shop! The lady who I talked to said she didnt think they had a black limited edition ones but knew what i was talking about as shes been thinking of getting it herself but she said she will have a look in stores. She was searching as she knew she still had a few of the standard sets, I said if you dont have one can you order it and she said of course! Anyway a couple minutes later she said she found it last one!!

I've already used it. My tap on my sink has been wobbling for a while and it's really tricky to get into the area. Really i need a washer to pack out the thread so i can nip up the nut easier but haven't got any so had to use my 13mm socket and also a wobble extension so i could flex it about a bit. I'll look at getting a fat washer later so i can do the job properly

Next job is to fit the Translogic QS so this will be out in force!

Pics of the set attached

Loving it in black to be honestImageImageImage

Ordered a cap for my bikes mirror. The mirror and the indicator are all in the same shaft so there's a cap which covers the wires. It must of popped off at some point when I went to Wales a month back so since then I've put tape around it. Today I've ordered a new cap!

Nice!

I ordered the wife a new phone from a website I haven't used before. They sell phones destined for UAE, but for a massive markdown on the UK price. Less than 24 hours later it had been shipped from China and was through my front door.

Only difference I can see from the UK model is it is dual sim.

This is where I bought from. https://www.empirehut.co.uk

There's some pretty decent reviews, and so far all good. Probably the only concern is a warranty issue, as the phone isn't a uk phone you have to send it back to them to them send it on to the manufacturer. I did read a review where they just replace the phone, so hopefully all good. Then again we've both got android phones that are nearly 3 years old and haven't missed a beat.

Very cheap 3 lenses for the phone just wanted to try a wide angle lense for shooting on the camera. They aren't any good. Ive asked one of my mates, mates to take a look to see if he can spot a bargain decent lense. He's into his photography and if you saw his phone only work then you'd agree he does know what he's going on about and gets stunning pics. I just want slightly better than what im getting (wider views)
