Those CK Combi 3 seem to get slated by most poeple as they say they don't work.

Is this true?

On the combicutter tool, where the insulation stops there is a small groove to place conductor in. Its a 2 part process, where firstly you bend conductor over to 90degrees and then open up handles further and realign the bent conductor back into the groove and squeeze firmly which should result into nice terminal end.

CK screwdrivers and CK Combicutter 3. Absolutely love the bit for bending conductors over. Always comes out really neat.

First day in the new job today and left my nice channelock pliers (which I bought in NZ) on the job (a school kitchen) I have to go back tomorrow so hope they are still there - probably under the frier I was installing!

CK screwdrivers, CK/NWS cutters and Pliers and Knipex cutters. The knipex cutters I've had for longer than the CK's/NWS's and are the best ones I've had.

Lidl VDE screwdriver sets as a backup on the van - surprisingly good! Lidl pliers and side cutters do just fine at

I personally use Drapers expert VDE range. I find them not only comfortable to handle and use but also the range of terminal driver sizes are from 2.0mm and the next sizes go up 0.5mm each!

I have about 3 x 3.5mm in my tool bag at the moment, a few weeks ago I had 6 but you know what its like! I must have left a few under a floor here and there!

At that rate you won't have any. Welcome to the forum bluechip.

Draper value kit that I got when I started my course!

The drivers are good, if a little battered now. The side cutters are getting to be rather blunt now though.

Got a nice pair of NWS cutters that scared the heck out of the missus when she saw them...

Other than that, the usual collection of bits and bobs that you pick up on the way.
