- PSA – Lidl allen key set
I’m going to get 2 sets!
You will need to, the bigger ones are OK for occasional use, the smaller ones are soft as babba.
To be fair they are cheap so aimed at occasional and light use I imagine.Posted 4 years agoThree_FishMemberz1ppyMember
Halfords Pro range instead? £14.. yes still a tenner more but mine have outlasted any number of crap sets I previously had.
It’s also saved me any number of issues cause by rounding off bolts… only wish I’d bought a good set sooner!
Don’t get me wrong, I love an Lidi/aldi bargain but am distrustful of stuff like this.Posted 4 years agoCraigWMember
Is the Lidl folding saw any good? Could be handy for trail maintenance.Posted 4 years ago
Is the Lidl folding saw any good?
Not really, it works fine for the first few branches but after that the inverse v serrated teeth on the blade go blunt very quick and it jams in branches etc, i guess it may be ok for very light maintenance but it’s not suitable for repeated use.
For light trail maintenance get yourself a folding silky pocketboy, you can pick them up for £25ish and you’ll never regret the extra expense as they are generally regarded as the best you can buy, ultra sharp and will zip through anything under 4″ dia with ease.
I use a Silky Zubat but that has a 330mm fixed blade that hangs in it’s sheath from my holster when i’m on trail maintenance duties on my local trails, quite dear at £50+ but the best bit of bike stuff i’ve bought this year as i’ve cleared a helluva amount of fallen trees with it and opened up miles of new paths, i pair it with my Stihl razor sharp bush-hook and stihl felling axe, they make quite a formidable pair when hanging from my rucksack waist strap – bring on the zombie apocalypse – i’ll be right in there 😀
Silky Zubat £50ish

Still Bush-Hook £16ish
Back at Lidl yesterday to stock up on smoked trout and dog seatbelts – and found a 16-piece set of T-handled allen keys and torx keys in useful sizes.
£10 and made of proper CR-V again. Used them last night and they seem equivalent quality to lifeline/icetools etc.
