Mechpro Cantilever Tool Kit 148 Piece $48.99 @ Repco

1740

It's a clearance item with plenty of stock in Sydney stores.

Really surprised by the quality and finish of the tools. Cantilever mechanism feels weak and toolbox needs to be opened and closed gently if you want to keep long-term.

1 year toolbox warranty says it all.
3 year tool warranty.

Need some space if you want to open both ends of the toolbox.

The kit includes the following:

10x 1/4 inch Drive Sockets: 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13mm
6x 3/8 inch Drive Sockets: 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19mm
1x 3/8 inch Drive Extension Bar: 75mm
1x 3/8 inch to 1/4 inch Adaptor
1x 1/4 inch Bit Coupler
1x 1/4 inch Drive Spinner Handle
11x 25mm drill Bits Set
21x 3/8 inch Drive Ratchet Handle Quick Release
8x Hex Keys: 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 5.5, 6mm
6x Screwdrivers
5x Combination Wrench: 10, 13, 14, 15, 17mm
1x Crimping Tool 200mm
82x Crimping Terminals
1x Circuit Tester
4x Precision Screwdrivers
1x Utility Knife
1x Tape Measure 5m
1x Mini Hacksaw
1x Combination Pliers 150mm
1x Long Nose Plier 150mm

    Why did you post this!? Now I bought this and the electric set on clearance…Now I have 3 toolboxes, way too many tools living in an apartment!

    Thanks btw. I think it is a great thing to keep and will help with my DIY path I am planning to embark upon.

      Electric set?

    • SAME/SAME LOL

      When you consider the toolbox-only retails for $15 does not leave much fat for the tools cost

      I drive a VW 1.8 turbo

      It will ride with me in the vehicle :-)

      • Got a link to just a toolbox? That's all I actually want.

        • Might have been SCA, Repco, Ebay or even Bunnngs, not sure which now,just search a bit should be able to find similar

    • UPDATE: The deal was not honoured and refund notice received today.

    Yeh my utility knife is a bit blunt. Good timing OP.

    • So $48 for a utility knife?

      • +11

        yes, utility knife with a bonus +147 pieces. sounds like a bargain to me.

        I think my wife bought the argument… she is rolling her eyes at me though

  • +13

    148 piece?

    82 crimping terminals shouldnt count lol.

    • +7

      I suppose we should be thankful it's not a 248 piece set with 100 cable ties as well 🙂

      good enough quality as you don't plan on building a house from scratch.
      Great cheap set for a non-professional that will barely use it and most likely use it for building IKEA furniture.

  • +2

    Does anyone have recommendations for a reasonable priced + decent quality socket & spanner sets? Just casual use so cant really justify snap on etc, but was wondering what the xiaomi of tools is, something that offers good vlaue?

    • +7

      Grab a ToolPro kit from Supercheap when they are on special or on clearance. Good quality gear that comes with a lifetime warranty.

      • +1 I have a set of Sidchrome sockets I bought new in the late 90's, so unsure if it is original Sidchrome, Proto, or Taiwanese Sidchrome. They have done a bit of work - did most of my own car work all those years ago - and have always been dependable.

        Anyway…the Toolpro stuff impresses me, and mostly feels quite comparable. Certainly a good step up from the really cheap stuff, and yet reasonably priced. Recommended.

      If you can wait for it to be on sale again then consider this:

        ^this.. I bought this exact deal and have added a few other ToolPro add ons whenever I see them on clearance. So nice having tools that don't stretch and strip nuts when the smallest amount of pressure is applied.

      I was lucky enough to grab one of these a few years ago:

      • +1

        i got the stanley too. great set

    • +2

      Stretch to a Bahco set, not a fortune but quality tools that you will have for many years.

    • 173 piece dewalt set from Costco for $200 if you can

      • @Super64 thanks for the recoomendation! I cant see it on the Costco website (im not a member, but was thinking of joining). Do you have any more info, such as which kit it is.

  • Have one for couple years, still going strong. Decent quality for what it’s worth.

    • I agree. I've been using a similar mechpro kit for 3 years or more just general car maintenance and it's fine

  • What is usual price for this one?

  • +1

    Don’t know if it’s good, but it seems like a good price for what you get so I bought one. Thanks, OP!

  • +1

    Sweet just looking for something like this for the missus

    • I asked at my local store and they said they wouldn't give me anything for my missus. Where did you ask?

  • Thanks OP! Been looking for a tool set

  • +3

    I kinda wish I had an excuse to buy this. Great value but I have multiple of these tools already

    If you don't already have a tool set then get this!

  • Would the tools rust when not used?

    I had a similar tool box and over time it started to rust and I never used them..

    • If you leave them outside in the rain - Yes.

    • Wipe them over with oil and they should be fine.

  • Bought one thanks OP

  • +8

    Purchased. I'm now a complete man.

    • 20% doesn’t stack?

    • 20% off excludes clearance items.

    • Tracked fine for me😊

      • 2.00% cash back

    • How come? Mine shows 2%!!

      • Yup, my bad, only 2% 😞

        • +1

          Your maths is awful!

  • i got a refund via paypal and email? what?

    • +1

      Same here, just got a refund with no reason.

      • Yep. No idea what i did wrong lol

    • Same, afterpay refunded, :-(

      No stock?

  • +3

    Thanks, just ordered mine. Add an air freshener and get free delivery if you live in Vic

  • I have a red metal toolbox that looks very similar to this, have had for around 25 years now, a bit rusty but still does the job.

  • Tempted but looks pretty big to store.

  • I've got this kit (bought it for 79) and it's a great kit for the price. The only flaws is the case itself which becomes loose over time and the plastic tray is easy to damage. The tools aren't the greatest but for the value I'd highly recommend. It's a set I'd take to a wreckers or fixing stuff in the bathroom.

  • Thanks OP, bought one.

  • damn they dropped the price. I picked this up from their last deal when it was $69.

  • Great, crave for this toolbox since other deal that worth $1k.

  • thanks OP, just fitting out my first warehouse, fk me there's alot of stuff I need, this will be fantastic!

    No wonder you are always chasing SCA,,,,,,

  • Just to feedback here since I saw so many comments about getting a refund, I just got a message saying that my item can be picked up from a local store.

    I placed the order around 530pm that day.

    • Did you manage to pick up?

      • Yes I picked it up from store. There were two and one of them was mine.

  • PRICING ERROR.

  • +1

    Got a call that it is TOTALLY out of stock so will issue a refund

  • I'm still waiting for my cancellation call/email, so far nothing, says my order is still in progress.

  • Kind of annoyed it go cancelled still, trying to look for a similar kit for under $100. there's quite a few but not sure about quality… any suggestions? :)

    https://www.kogan.com/au/buy/bullet-118pc-tool-kit-box-set-m...

    never heard of Bullet..

  • Refund emailed came today and offers no reason. But I haven't received any refund yet!

  • No refund email or any updates here.

  • I have received mine today.

  • Anyone else who got cancelled received an email requesting a product review?
    Very tempted….

  • I bought one to store in the car boot but the case isn't as solid as I'd like. Send me a private message if you're interested in buying it for $50 pickup from outer-eastern suburbs Melbourne.
