If they are just to look at... how about you buy them... offer them up as a prize for a competition in the trainee section and then have them send you some wipe clean laminated photos of them to 'drool' over ;)

Then everybody wins :D

Why do these professional VDE kits come with a silly neon screwdriver as a tester?
Would be better having a non contact type as an early warning.

How many of the driver bits would you actually use?

It’s like a bad after taste! Why when you buy a professional kit of drivers do they think you’d be the type of person to need a neon. It muddys the water!

Pete, are you alright mate or still in shock. Fellow members should have known better or given the warning to look away now as they do if the football results are on the TV and you haven't seen the match.

Okay then, the Polish counter girl at Screwfix/Toolstation..........
Remember Mate I had a part time job at Screwfix, not a very nice description of a Screw fix Employee Mate, Associate or colleague to be more PC. And to add we are not out of the EU Yet, the young Lithuanian Girl who was my Mentor was very helpful, she was only about 18, but very helpful, and a nice Lass to boot, more than the Witch who was my Line Manager, now there was someone who thought she was Gods gift to DIY, wanted to take her outside and give her a good talking to about Personnel Management, never had a clue, more interested in showing her Tatts off, yes Tatts, in case you're reading Spoon.
