So, I got carried away at LIDL when I went in to pick up a 150mm digital vernier for £9.99, and also came back with :-
a 20 piece tap and die set and a19 piece cobalt coated HSS drill bit set
The cheap vernier has a clear display sensibly larger and easier to read than my more expensive Rolson vernier purchased a few years ago. Whilst initially a bit rough on the slide, it checks out against my various gauge blocks as well as the Rolson.
But, what can I expect from the tap & die set, and the drill bit set? One use per item and then useful storage cases or something a bit better?
