It never ceases to amaze me what you can find on the shelves of Aldi. To help people tackle DIY jobs around the home, the supermarket giant has added an impressive array of tools and workwear. As someone who does a lot of DIY to keep the family home in order, I was very happy to give a couple of the products a try.
First up, a ten piece wrench key set made for Aldi by WorkZone. This set starts at 1.5mm and goes up to 10mm in size. It also comes with a handle to give you extra purchase when trying to shift particularly awkward bolts. There’s not much more to say other, than at £4.99 you can’t go too far wrong.
The next set of tools I’ve been using is a 101 piece ‘bit set’, also made by WorkZone (see top picture). In other words this is a solidly-built ratchet screwdriver with a very wide range of fittings. You have flat heads, pozi-drive, star fittings, hex fittings and so on. In fact there are several bits that I just can’t identify. I have no idea what you’d use them for!
I’ve used this a couple times now and, at £9.99, it strikes me as very good value for money. I’m sure I’ll be putting it to good use in the months to come.
Other items in the Aldi range include a work bend, tap and die set and various pieces of workwear. All are a part of the Special Buys range and so are only available while stocks last.
I was provided with a wrench set and bit set to review. All thoughts are my own. To see my discolsure policy, please follow this link.
