Good set
11 Nov 2012
By fabgav

"Brought this when on offer for the plastering trowle and have put all the kit through heavy use lately and they have been invaluable.
The end caps did fall out and one trowel is getting loose but for the price they are great!

Great for beginners/DIY
29 Mar 2012
By Jread
, gloucestershire
"Bought this for my first set of tools, been using them ever since (half a year or so)
Great value for money, just the job for beginners and DIYers, the brick trowel has a nice lift on it, just perfect price for people starting out like myself or for people who need a second trowel set as back up.

By Oddbod

"With a spend of just over a quid each what more value for money could you ask for not going to keep a builder happy but as i only occasionally use these items and when i do the job is great then i am well happy.
Essential item for the DIYer

All in one set, great!
30 Jun 2012
By whufcnutt121
, Essex
"Had everything (and more) that I was looking for. The surface of the trowels may not be top top quality for durability, but if kept clean these should last long enough to warrant the relative inexpensive spend.
I expect they will rust in time, but for this price this is a great starter set for anyone. I used this to replace just a pointing trowel that had broken and brick trowel that had disappeared. Happy with how they balance in the hand when bricking.
My only gripe is that the black plugs on the end of the handles do tend to fall off too easily, but a bit of PTFE or similar fixes this no problem."

Brilliant value
17 Mar 2010
By DIYDJ
, Oxfordshire
"Great for beginers not the highest quality but for non-proffesonals who will only use them now and again they are ideal and excellent value for money. had to give five stars for reliability as they are still in one piece however i have only had them a few weeks and only used them once so you would expect at least that much!"

Good for the Price
30 Oct 2009
By MuttsNuts
, Yorkshire
"What can you say about these, they do the job, great for a DIYer like myself, and for occasional use like I do, the price is spot on, wouldn't be good for trade use though.
Only issue I have had is with the end caps which keep falling out, but some superglue soon solved that"

Okay but not the best quality
26 Aug 2011
By RickM
, Oswestry
"I bought this set on special offer so it was good value for the money. However, the plastic end of one of the trowels fell off the first time used it which made it uncomfortable to hold while working. If I had paid full price I would have returned it to the store for a refund. Apart from that niggle the trowels are fine for occasional use."

ONLY GOOD FOR MAKING CAKES
27 Jul 2013
By besty
, london
"Brought these as i had to build a retaining wall in the back garden, the saying you get what you pay for rings true here.
It seemed impossible to pick up a full trowel full of mort with out the trowel bending in half and all the contents dropping on the floor.
Wouldnt recommend for a hefty building task, but ok for small DIY jobs"

patio job
15 Jun 2011
By penguinpushups

"lasted the job but not in any way close to the way they started....
Red ends fell off the handles
Metal lost its coating after day one, even though washed thoroughly.
2 pieces of set went loose at the handle joint.
expect to pay the price for using the tools for the one job only"

Poorly made
14 Nov 2008
By lonemascot
, Essex
"You certainly get what you pay for. Yes its cheap but they feel cheap and they are not comfortable to work with.
The caps on the handles keep falling out.
The pointing tool is like tin foil.
The handles are badly weighted.
I'd suggest you spend a few quid extra and get something worthwhile."

Totally useless
3 Aug 2013
By albinus
, Chesterfield
"Opened the box, excited to see my new trowel set. Only to find one of the handles pulled straight off one of the trowels, line pins bent, no chance of getting a straight wall. There was enough string to lay three bricks and the pointing tool was more like a triangle, no use for pointing!
Why sell this set when it is not fit for purpose?
