PB plumber you posted up Shaun has all the new toys but I suspect he's getting freebies for advertising them.

I've got the 15 & 22 pipe slices and the stubby wide jaw spanner they're well made bits of kit - although when I looked in their catalogue different products are made to different standards.
Except they keep eating blades :D mine go through a set in a month or two other than that there not bad

I want this kit but will feel robbed at £167.00

I do a lot of taps but I have the jaw droppers and monoblock spanners..
I don't own any Nerrad tools, are the worth the money?
Nerrad tools seem to evoke a 'Marmite' response from what I've seen. THey were very popular fro a while but then backed off marketing so have fallen away somewhat.

Personally, I have only ever stuck with tools from toolmakers such as Bahco etc. I do not go for even the likes of Rothenburger anymore as just like the likes of Stanley, they are just too poorly made, too slack, too much tolerance which, on a tight tap nut, is pretty darned important when you're using them as your main source of income generation.

I agree with Shaun here. There's one other thing. If you are changing taps often cos there is a problem getting spares, maybe look at improving that situation. That way the pain in the bum problem of having to 'change em' goes away.

My lips are as tight as our WRAS approval :cool::cool::cool: :D:D:D unlike 70%+ of the taps sold in the UK & 99.973% of cartridges.

Hey I thought I was being perfectly fair!
It's not my place, neither, to be honest, is it right to outright promote. That's for you 'clever' lot - hint hint. :rolleyes:

Aww come on you horrible lot. I was genuinely trying to help. :(

Let's face it we've all struggled for years doing the bl00dy things but thanks to, and I quote, "A bl00dy good bit of kit" it's now a doddle...

Oh, on a course yesterday in sunny Gloucester training Dyno Plumbing lads, someone made a perfect new 3/4" cartridge in 4 minutes 56 seconds smashing the previous record of 12 mins 7 seconds... ;)

How the hell did you get one? Not having you paid retail for that bad boy:p:p:p
Ordered from the website I do a lot of disabled Stuff eg changing to lever taps and repairing

And I did no special discounts

He did indeed. Moreover, he ordered many more components than standard. Fact is, it genuinely works out really profitably as often you are replicating a £50 cartridge for £9.50!

In short it works out around £15 for the 1/2 and £20 for the 3/4 each fully
