Rolson hand tool sale? Answered

Not sure if this is a local thing or whether it's also going on elsewhere, but Tesco in Cambridge is having a sale on Rolson tools: I got a pair of safety goggles, four pack of clamps and a junior hacksaw for a pound each, and there's more (mostly hand tools) to be had.  I know all the adages about buying cheap tools, but at that price I'd happily use them as raw materials for a one-off make.  

UKinese members, check out the hardware aisle in your local big Tesco, thar be (potentially) bargains.  Now I'll have to work out something to do with them all...

I came back with two packs of sandpaper and a pair of safety glasses, grand total £3.00

(I actually went to Tescos looking for paperclips...)
