Afraid the AEG brand is now yet another to be put on cheap tat. Had a couple of AEG power tools. All rubbish, and returned for refund. Fine for the occasional user i`m sure, but not better than any Parkside/no-name.
AEG is made by the same group that makes Milwaukee tools so hardly cheap tat

I cant see these being quality in anyway. AEG is owned by Electrolux, they just licence the brand name out now which is what TTI do, they dont have much care for the brands TBH names are used for the cash cow all the products just different badge and slightly different spec's come out the same factories in china or TW. They cant use say Hoover in the UK for floorcare as Candy own Hoover. TTI only got Hoover US licence because they brought it off Maytag who in turn got brought by Whirlpool and so on LOL

good price but not ip65 rated so now only suitable for certain Installations. These are admittedly in a different price bracket, but meet all current building regs and require no transformer. A good price for these I think ?

Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/231542038776
Good price, but these are for extra low voltage lamps and will need a transformer as well

You can buy it in store, if you wish. I agree that it's not worth spending £5 on postage for this.

bought some dewalt ones from screwfix £2.99 with erbaur bit holder from screwfix 8-9 months ago have onlu gone through 3 since then so if they are anything like dewalt ones then a good price (allthough you would have to buy 4 packs for free delivery.
These are good for this price but they do break under impact quite easily...

For lighting if you aren't going for spotlights (we didn't bother in the downstairs loo, utility room and money ran out to do it in the bedrooms!) then check out John Lewis lighting section. We got some lovely light fittings.
They have a sale on and some stuff is dirt cheap like this https://m.johnlewis.com/john-lewis-the-basics-keely-single-spotlight/p/150468
EDIT: definitely follow through with the brushed steel on light fittings. And we also got brushed steel door handles & hinges
I went for these ones https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/aw/d/B006J7KCTC/ref=mp_s_a_1_8?ie=UTF8&qid=1468224426&sr=8-8&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=brushed+door+handle&dpPl=1&dpID=513MZpeXnOL&ref=plSrch
They're so ergonomically designed that they're lovely to use. Another thing people comment on and just gives that superb finishing touch.
Can I put a non dimmable led light in that light fitting?

A few tips I found during my switch and socket search:
- if you want LED low energy spotlights and a dimmer, you need a special switch suitable for dimming LEDs
- go for dimmers in bedrooms, living areas and kitchen etc. You won't regret it. They make such a difference. I went for normal ones in hallways etc.
- don't bother with the plug sockets with USBs on them, they're expensive and only trickle energy through (not powerful enough to charge an iPhone or ipad, but OK for a Fitbit for example).
- don't scrimp on power socket points.
With spotlights, that's what we are doing. In living areas it's dimmers and hall way etc it's going to be non dimmable.
Going for a mix of spotlights and normal lights depending on area. Kitchen is going to have spots but Hall way were having a chandelier for example.
All your points are very similar to my thinking


See if you can hide some of the kitchen fuses in the cupboards & then you can get the cheaper white ones as they'll be hidden.

Just make sure you get dimmers suitable for LEDs otherwise you get that horrible buzzing noise (plus I think it's frowned upon for safety). I assume you'll get LED spotlights as they're more energy efficient & wont need changing for a long long time.

I shopped around and bought Grohe taps, showers etc for the bathrooms. Highly recommended.

Hooks and loo roll holders I went for Haceka Kosmos and they're brilliant
http://www.very.co.uk/aqualux-haceka-kosmos-toilet-roll-holder/1298790318.prd?_requestid=50423

All bathrooms have shiny chrome fittings (another reason I love those handles as there's a tiny bit of shiny on the round ring so it all fits in so well).

So how do these stick to the walls?
I'm looking for sockets and switches too. Looking for about 50 sockets. Thinking of just getting standard white for now. Might replace them in a few years.
Look into BG (British General) online if you can't get enough of these or want matching switches and sockets.
When they're this cheap, I would get the brushed steel ones now rather than white ones and upgrade them later. Then there's the added benefit of having a couple of extra years looking at, and using, lovely sockets plus save money on the white ones and time replacing them.
Some of the prices on the site are dirt cheap. Can't believe the prices for some of the ones like chrome finish.
I'm assuming that's just the front plate and not the metal box that houses the wires inside the wall?
I recon they'd come as a set (fitting and front plate).
Personally I'd not go for the screwless ones as my electrician said they're just a pain in the butt when walls aren't completely flush and they have a tendency to pop out of the fitting plate.
I've got the screw Nexus range and having aesthetically pleasing brushed steel switches and sockets really does finish the house off so well and I would have regretted white one. Also the number of people who mention them!
I've got a fantastic electrician and he now buys BG stuff as its so cheap but excellent quality. It's also reassuring that it's not some cheap Chinese brandless tat.
If you're going for these toolstation ones then the great thing is you can click & collect or get them delivered, and if you don't like them or you've over ordered then you can take them back!
Gone to the BG site but for the life of me can't see any prices for the items...

It's BG electrical yeah? I've gone through multiple products but can't see the prices at all for anything.


Yeah, try this

Brushed steel looks better than shiny steel in my opinion, and it also doesn't show finger marks.

been this price for a while. Last time this deal was posted I stocked up on different bits. Unfortunately I've destroyed 4 bits in one day using my Makita impact wrench. I'll be sticking with Wera bits in future.

I havent seen it posted on here at this price before? They were retailing at £13.99 a few weeks ago in Toolstation, so it hasnt been a great deal of time they have been reduced.
Depends on what your using them for, I purchased a set for use around the house which they are great for. I have a set of Wera Impaktor bits for work, which I think I paid £30+ for. You get what you pay for, but for general use these are a great set for a great price. But saying that, Ive still managed to bust bits from the Wera set using a Milwaukee Impact Driver. Nothing lasts forever!!

I'd recommend using diatomaceous earth to treat red mites in a non toxic way.

I don't use it on the chickens I treat the coup you mad man.

I can't believe this has been voted cold. I have been using this for the past 4 years and it works great. It repels water ingress and lasts for about 2 years. If you don't have a Buyology near you then this is the best price.

These bits are absolute **** in an impact driver. Bought a pack of ten once and went through them in the same space of time a single wera lasts me.

mikeandclare
Out of interest, why would you want 25 of the same type bit if they don't wear out? Unless it's for a business etc with many drills maybe I only ever need 1 of a certain size
If you're using these for their intended purpose (impact screwdriving), you may find that bits shatter/wear a lot quicker.


If your a tradesman and you smashing in hundreds of screws daily then u can go through a fair few in a week believe me!!
Oscar123454
I can second the quality of these, absolutely awful. In the past they have been good but the last pack we used were terrible, only got them because screwfix were out of dewalt ones.
I've been using the Dewalt impact ones and they seem to last a good while. I'm doing a full house restoration so they are getting a fair bit of abuse.
johnnyd57uk
These are extremely hard wearing and wont have blunted tips after a few uses as you tend to find even with Stanley, DeWalt Bosch etc despite their reputations. These are definately the best quality bits ive used. Wonder how others have found them.


Absolute crap. I use my impact driver daily. These pz2 bits are useless. By far the best ones I've have found are dewalt ones. Nice and cheap but far superior to any others I have tried. Believe me I've tried them all too!!

actually the puck design is super annoying, having to rotate the thing and poke about to get the bit out.

looks OK though

wera ones are the best. do not waste your money on this.
they will cost you your screws, diy project and precious time. NEVER TRY TO SAVE ON TOOLS

uhm NO, wera aren't the best ( Ok maybe that black one which costs £4-£5 a piece)
these are much much better than the wera cheap/mid ones,

I bought a bucket of these in past and I'm only on 2nd, first going through some 4-5k screws, 2nd one- I have lost count, I got 8more which I reckon will last me a few years.
These milwaulkie ones are brilliant, wera are brilliant too, if you get the right ones. The cheaper wera ones are crap, as for benzas comment on these, you don't know what your on about . You'll probably reply with 'I use them all the time, I know what I'm on about' but couldn't give a monkeys what your opinion is from now, as you clearly are a diy'er that don't use bits all day every day , or simply you don't know how to use a drill driver

Screw fix have a better one, just spotted it in local today.Makita DLX2020W £189

why do you say the other deal is better?
This looks like a much more powerful drill set for an extra £10. This one is 62KN the other one is only 42Kn.

Don't get me wrong they are both great drills but I think this one is the better choice for the money.


Yes you're correct, this one is better than the Screwfix one, I posted the Screwfix one as a deal and it's gone scorching compared to this, reason? I put LXT in the title probably.. OP on this one was a tad late I think in following my advice in first post, otherwise this would be 500deg. +

Further to my last comment, they are LXT, it says it on the side of my drills. (That I bought on this deal).
It also says LXT on google, when searched for a model number. What does LXT stand for? Is it the fact it's Li-Ion battery with the Xtreme proTection technology? Because if so, both these models do benefit from this tech. If you're looking for the LXT brushless, of course you're not going to find it at £200, De Walt's brushless XR equiv is like £350... with a slow charger and 1.5Ah batteries. This is still an epic deal imho. I've purchased these, and they've destroyed every job I've thrown at them.
THESE ARE NOT LXT AS ADVERTISED...I have recieved a toolstation leaflet advertising this twin pack as LXT...I contacted Toolstation to double check and thye admitted they are not LXT which is a far superior model. FALSE ADVERTISING!! I fail to see how Toolstation would not know the difference in models they are promoting.
Royston, do you have a link mate?

Well at full load and length of the extension lead you're gonna get around 20 volts, volt drop that's not including what's going on with the circuit supplying the lead so it could start to have issues. I do agree with what load it is (inductive/resistive) and like you said above about them generally being 10 amp would make more sense.
As for daisy chaining extension lead not something that i would advise seen to many people thinking they can plug far too much in.
I agree. I still think its a good deal. I'm somewhat surprised that it went so cold, especially when no-one could find a better deal that didnt involve daisy chaining. Well it's on the record if anyone needs one.

Must get a bit of volt drop on the these.
That depends on the diameter of the conductor in the cable and the current drawn.
I'm still unable to find a better deal on a 50m 13A length, which makes me wonder why it has gone so cold.
Well max current will be 13 amps and conductor size will be only 1.5mm , but let's be honest after you have plugged into a circuit and reeled out it will start to suffer volt drop even if not a lot of current is being pulled.
It's directly proportional to the length, so twice the drop of one half the length. However, the Volt drop is also proportional to the current drawn and since most loads likely to be used are inductive (motors), the voltage leads the current by a significant phase angle meaning the current drawn will peak when the volts are at a lower point in the cycle and the voltage will peak when the current is at a lower point in the cycle, so the volt drop at maximum voltage will be significantly less than for a purely resistive load (kettles). Also I'm suspecting the people who made it know what they are doing.

Must get a bit of volt drop on the these.
That depends on the diameter of the conductor in the cable and the current drawn.
I'm still unable to find a better deal on a 50m 13A length, which makes me wonder why it has gone so cold.
Well max current will be 13 amps and conductor size will be only 1.5mm , but let's be honest after you have plugged into a circuit and reeled out it will start to suffer volt drop even if not a lot of current is being pulled.
I wonder if I get a badge if it reaches -100

Ours took a bit of fettling to get some of the bolt holes to line up - but once assembled it is sturdy enough. The missus is hardly overloading it though (she's using it to transport top soil).
Paddy said, "I want to try that wheelbarrow position tonight."

His wife asked, "What is that?"

Paddy told her, "You bend over, put your hands on the floor Then I pick your legs up from behind!"

His wife said, "Hmm, okay, I'll do it on two conditions. First, if it hurts you stop immediately and, second, ... we don't go past my mother's house!"

Thanks Op - it is a good price but thanks to laserdisc also. I like the brand better - plenty stock in and around Huddersfield, Halifax etc.

Very reliable, had one of these for years. It's only 0.6W but if anything it's a little bright for our landing so I made a little card lampshade for it which also softens the look of it for our period house.
Great idea for hallway and landing while on holiday.
Good find.
Not sure I agree with the description of sleek - looks rather over-engineered to me.
I bought the same item three years ago at the Ideal Home Exhibition - it's still working well and is used daily in a fairly dark dorridor. It switches off as expected in daylight and is always there at night. I'd certainly buy again.

You can get pretty decent GU10 LED bulbs for £1 in Poundland, I've got three in the spots on my kitchen and I'd say that the 5w version is almost too bright, would recommend going for the 3w (or was it 3.5w) version they're selling
You can get 10 in a pack for £20 in Asda and they are dimmemble. I bought 2 packs and replaced all of the ones in bathroom and kitchen. They are fab and much brighter.

Cheap and nasty, I had one and the blades are prone to snap off if put under any strain. Now use a Swann-Morton 5a knife with interchangable blades (which are dirt cheap too) :)http://www.shipwrightshop.com/shop/contents/media/t-kn1005.jpg

£2.20 each + vat, 5 or more cheaper......

bought 5 for £11.70 delivered.
Might be of use to someone out there!


​How many Lumens are these bulbs? Seem pretty decent if it's 350+


​warm white 287lm it states, also
cool white 297lm and
daylight 308lm available

5W at 435 - 450 lm, but thems about a pound more each.

Colour temperature of 3000k, 4000k, and 6000 Kelvins respectively! for those who ask.

CERTAIN to be better (for my mum) than the 3 x 60w they replace.

Just got a pack of the warm white & a pack of the cool white not keen on the cool white so will be taking the cool white back

Yes I have the warm white they seem more natural or rather what I'm used to than cool white.

Cleans carpet stains better than vanish, friend in garage told me, I was skeptical but it works!
I wouldn't trust a bloke who carpets his garage
Works on carpets in cars and caravans, not sure about the carpet on the garage floor, but Stratstones do like to keep it clean.

Noob question X)
My brakes been squeaking at 7000 miles so i can hardly imagine they're worn but a friend was suggesting it could be trapped dirt.
With this product do i simply spray through the alloys where i see the brakes?
yes you can.
Depending upon your brake manufacturer/materials used the squeal may be normal when applying brakes or it could indicate worn pads/rotors.
However based on cost and time this is the first thing to try out before getting a mechanic to start nodding his head and tutting expensively.
It wasn't there before so can't assume it's due to materials but absolutely agree, better to try the cheaper solution before taking it into a garage X)
Have some heat! Thanks OP.

This deal is freezing cold, it's cheaper for a bigger can of acetone free brake cleaner at eurocarparts as jas95aero said.
