Have you ever used the 9, 11, 15, 16 and 18?!!?
(I recently [stupidly] bought a cheapo socket-set from Super-Cheap and
discovered that it had no 13, 17 or 19 but instead had a very helpful
16, 18 & 20mm!)

15 is a common size for mirrors, 11 I've had on 2 chain driven bikes
for adjuster locknuts, 16 was a brake caliper bolt on an old Yamaha!

I like Aldi. I think competition is good. Aldi generally have
reasonably good quality stuff at a fair price. It's true that Safeway
and Coles supermarkets in the same catchment areas have lower prices,
and I believe that major supermarket chains engage in anti-competitive
practices. My wife loves Aldi more than me, but I cannot give a good
write up on their motorcycle boots. My wife got me a pair, I thought
they'd be good to wear in the wet. They were new at the start of
summer. I've only worn them about 50 times and they both leak along a
stitched seam that runs all the way across the front. I can tell
because I felt the cold water getting in while I was riding and my
socks were wet 2" each side of the seam line when I stopped. Should I
throw them away?

Thing is Zee Bunnings is a few minutes walk away and much as I hate that
spending on impulse is so much fun .
