Ive always been pleased with the quality of Parkside tools from Lidl (no doubt someone will disagree) and at the moment they have a deal on  handtools - 4 for £10. These tools range from £2.99 to £5.99 and there's pliers (sharp nosed, regular, side snips, etc), hammers and mallets, sanding discs and angle grinder discs,  calipers, micrometer,  precision screwdriver sets etc etc, . Stocks vary from store to store but certainly worth a look .

Living within sight of Lidl I always had a look through there tools on the centre isle. My favorite purchase recently are the magnetic tool holders. I bought there tools in the past to give to our son rather than borrowing mine. For occasional use they are good enough and cheap to replace.

I'm also a fan of their tools, just need a person with sufficient skills to use them wave

Never bought any of the electric stuff but found the screwdrivers, spanners etc good enough for everyday use as others have said. up!

If it all goes to rats, Lidl have great returns policy..

In the two times I've used it they didn't want the faulty items back, all done from somewhere in Belgium

Aldi is much the same. Three year warranty on electrical tools.
 A cordless drill I bought there packed in after two years and eleven months of quite hard use. Of course a replacement was no longer available in stores, which was my preference over a refund. So Aldi gave me an email address in Germany. I emailed them and attached a photo of my receipt, within a week a new drill arrived!
 I gained as it was the updated model...

Caught a bit of TV last week where they were comparing Lidl's Parkside tools to some top brands. On most they were equal and occasionally better. So considering the price, may be worth investigating when I need a new addition to the toolbox.

Googling shows Lidl Parkside power tools are made by Einhell.

A Parkside SS garden hand tool I bought a while ago has Made in Germany stamped on both the handle and the stainless shaft. That's not packaged in Germany, designed in Germany, or finished in Germany which you get on so many things to obscure the fact they're actually made in China.. Good on them!

I don’t know if it changes opinions much with LIDL  centre isle bargains but I have a friend who had a supply contract with the store to provide rodent control items, mouse traps etc. The order had to be delivered in full at the same date which meant ramping up production, storing till order fulfilled and organising multi lorry delivery transport to despatch together.
They also reserved the right to carry out quality checks during production and any failure would result in termination of order.
So LIDl  in his opinion are quite quality conscious,obviously within a budget but it’s not rubbish. 
I agree with the frequently mentioned view that the tools are more than good enough for the occasional user.
