Went to B&Q looking for a Jigsaw, but ended up getting a Grinder as well as they have a great deal for 2 for £30 making it £15 each for a power tool. OK, appreciate Mac Allister isnt the greatest make and you wouldnt really use it for professional use, but great for a DIYers and would make some brilliant Christmas presents!!!! The mix and match deal is on a £23 Jigsaw - £18 3.6v screwdriver - £20 Sander - £23 Angle Grinder and even the £27 600w hammer driller (as in the link), so if you bought 2 of these, then that really is a great deal. Also noticed, some of these tools come with a 2 YEAR guarantee, which is great as even some of the big names only come with 1 year guarantee. Happy DIYing!

and they had loads in stock when i went in, its not really advertised on the shop (just in a small brochure on the way OUT!) and the website doesnt let you know what other items are included so hunted them all out for us bargain hunters :-)

there is also a 1/3 sheet sander.

I've got one of these and went through 3 to find a Chuck that didn't wobble. Keyless Chuck can be a pain. Make sure you try it out asap. Otherwise a good drill having taken lots of abuse.

OK for minor diy. but that's it.

burnt through 3 of the drills. They are terrible!

also as the Harvey has said the Chucks do wobble. The angle grinders are fine though, mine has had loads of abuse.

Just buy 2 drills, you can give one away as a christmas present. Most days i use the Cordless Hammer Drill, only when that cant take it...i break out the old "Power Devil" hammer drill.

What else would it be for :-0 ????

Wow Xmas sorted, deal of the decade hot from me!

Excellent deal. Hot

The deal is good, but I have to say customer service at the B&Q in Leicester is horrendous! Its fine if you know what you want, and don't have any interaction with employees on the shop floor, but god help you if you do. I know this isn't the forum to complain, but I thought I'd put it out there encase anyone else has experienced similar service in other parts of the country. A quick Google search for B&Q Leicester and a glance at their reviews will give you an idea of what I mean. Again I do apologise but I thought I'd put it out there!
(Just to be clear this is not a rant at ALL the employees in that particular store, the ones I've had the misfortune to come across seem to be the worst amongst them)

So two burnt out and you still went and bought a third?..:D..what utter nonsense some people speak in order to vote a deal down.....if you want Makita quality, pay Makita prices.....if however - like many folk - you want something capable of occasional DIY tasks, these are easily up to the job

Here, here, well said and it doesnt matter if they burn out 50 times, the 2 year warranty got your covered ;-)

I guess that you might get a Stanley fatmax angle grinder for £13.50 from Homebase rather than a £15 one from B&Q

He might not have bought a 3rd. He may have used the warranty on the 1st and 2nd one and got it replaced etc. free of charge. Just a thought?

Well no complaints about the 4th one the. ;-)

Another thought. If you're using power tools for medium/heavy duty industrial purposes (to the extent that you burn out three of them)...don't buy odd-job man power tools as its blindingly obvious that's not what they're intended for.

really hot

The cowboy wouldnt even have a horse, turn up in a donkey

What does one want with 2 drills??? One in each hand!?

Title should say power tools, Not looking for a drill. Thanks for the heads up, head added

I'll wait till Wed see if I get 10% club discount as well. Mac Allistar I think is their own brand? They have so many home name brands over the years, when they were Focus, and other names. I went in a couple weeks ago and they had new price tags on lots of shelves, grabbed some nails I needed priced £2.90. Get to till, £3.50 (now if I'd had a load of stuff I prob wouldn't have noticed. **** off, I left. Then went back as I really needed the nails. Had a idea took a different size bag nails to till. Yep, higher price at till! Wonder how many were caught that day, new prices on shelves, no updating of tills. Nice guy at till simply said oh ok I'll discount it. Not quite the same but I got them at shelf price. Complained and B&Q got back, apologised and said store manager would be in touch. So far, not a dicky bird!

I do wonder how many people get overcharged for stuff because they are just too busy to check receipts. A friend works in a supermarket and apparently this happens a lot. Stuff also gets put in wrong places and customer picks it up thinking it's price on shelf when it isn't. Okay, you should check but many people today are so rushed the time is not there. Me? I check if I'm a penny short! LOL

To drill 2 holes at the same time haha

Re chuck wobble. Do you adjust the bit size - eg. if you want to drill a 6mm hole but the chuck has a 1mm wobble should you use a 5mm bit ? edit or maybe a 4mm bit?

I use 3. One set up as an SDS, one as a wood/metal normal chuck and one as a screwdriver. I found this to be the optimal setup for me.
I can fly through any task with minimal changes needed.

This is hot hot hot, I really like Mac Allister tools, very goof vfm. I reckon the best combo to go for is the Jigsaw and Angle Grinder - the drill is very nice. but corded drills are a pain once you're used to cordless ones. The screwdriver is also good.
