Ebay or Facebook. Plenty of older quality boxes with tools if you don't mind a bit of paint missing.you do have to sort through the pound shop spanners and the dreamers wanting new price for 20 year old.but if you have time their are some real bargains.

Sealey do boxes full of tools.had a set up here in workshop for over 20 years and only got them as I’d not be too bothered if stolen.to be honest the tools are excellent and I can’t fault them.never had any breakages or issues either.have a look on their website.

I have mostly Halfords pro and some Clarke, they do trays that drop into tool boxes with all spanner’s in so they are nice and neat.

then on bench hung on wall I gave cheapo spanner’s hung up in size luckily I have several 13mm on that screw!

good stuff stays in shed crap stuff I take out in trays if I need to.

Although there are some genuine bargains, I would worry about buying stolen stuff

go buy stuff at farm sale tools etc pick out what you want then stick a box of shite you will never use in a collective sale .
end up with what you want
have a bread tray full of sockets if any one wants owt
or going to weld them all together to make another breakfast bar stool

Something like this is middle of the road stuff.
I don`t want to p** on your parade and I know NOTHING about this product so no criticism intended, however I got a compressor from SGS and a little problem with it soon convinced me that their customer service was pretty cr*p:(..... Just a word of warning. ;)
