I've got the Makita kit (was a present) and whilst some of the bits are naff and wear out v.fast (masonry - looking at you!) you do get a lot for your money. There are also doubles of things like the screwdriver bits and so forth, so at least if you kill one, you still have one or two to go.

It's still my go to kit for most jobs, albeit I do have better bits for certain things where needed.

It's nice and compact and has pretty much everything you'll ever need as a DIYer.

I just like it for the box tbh!
Good price atm!

Thanks for the heads up!
I popped down to Screwfix earlier today and picked up a set!

I highly recommend buying a worktop mounted sharper.
Mine is a cheaper variant which requires a drill to make up to it, however I have saved a fortune on the number of bits that I go through.

I got mine from Aldi, but was very similar to this:

Dormer or Presto.
I've become a fan of Bosch multi construction bits too.
I've found over the years of DIY that 150mm(or bigger) masonry bits
are more useful over the standard 'jobber' size

I just watched a demo review of the multi sharp. It looks a really good bit of kit, thank you.
