Seem like a good deal so heat added. Has anyone on here owned and can comment about these tools.?

Heat added. The drill & the grinder are worth it.

I've had a few of their tools in the past and they have been no issue what so ever for £35.00 you can't go wrong really for aroun the house

I'll await someone to come along and say its not Makita...

Pah, it's not Makita

I've used (probably abused) their Sds drill 3.5 kg one and it hasn't died yet after 4 years. 1 big refurb project and lots of other jobs on side. They seem to be worth the money.
On another note I bought Makita 101 piece kit as I always considered Makita a very good make and I was so disappointed. Flat wood bits and countersink didn't even work straight out of box. All other bits just so soft they didn't last either.
Sometime big brand isn't all that. Unless you get professional range which due to price difference isn't really comparable to these diy range tools.

Only mac allister tools I've owned were a jigsaw which had a bottom plate that would shake its self loose and not maintain 90 degree true and some masonry drill bits that must have been made of tin as the tips melted drilling 4 holes in brick and plaster. Learnt my lesson with power tools. You definitely get what you pay for.

I bought the grinder for £20 about 3 months ago - no problems.

The makita value packs are just stocking filler Chinese generic nonsense. I've tried them, great for single use. If you want hard wearing drill bits that don't cost the earth look at the dewalt extreme range of masonry and HSS-G bits. They stay sharp and maintain their diameter well. They also do wood bits also.

I bought angle grinder and jigsaw on the same deal last year i think. Not bad at all. I would recommend them, if you dont want to spend a fortune and use them just for some diy or repairs.

Excellent value for money. Definitely worth 35 for the grinder and drill

UNeed a new drill as my drill bits have outlasted it so I'll have a look at those offers...
Re drill bits..
I bought a set of drill bits with a lifetime guarantee from Ideal World a year or two ago when they were on offer with a right angled chuck adapter and diamond edged file....
"Cuts through wood, concrete, masonry (, glass ,tiles...) and much more. The tip is a Cobalt alloy designed for maximum hardness and resistance to heat and wear.
Especially designed for drilling power: Special negative rake grinding enables the tip to bore through all materials with a filing action rather than a cutting action. This enables you to drill through brick, steel, stone, marble and many more products with ease and precision.
Experience the toughness of the high-tech bonding. Cobalt-tipped, designed for maximum hardness and resistance to heat and wear. Can withstand temperatures of up to 1100°C."

I got the corded hammer drill and cordless screwdriver when they were 2 for £30 last time, still going strong now and both are getting hammered whilst doing a massive house gut and revamp 👌🏽 💪🏽

Thanks for that.

Just a shame the belt sander isn't in the deal as thats what I actually want. Want rather than need, obviously.....

Ordered the drill and angle grinder just because lol

Needed a drill of my own anyway.

Damn HotUKDeals

My father has the jigsaw and says it is one of the best he has used for the money. Quite tempted to get one myself whilst this offer is on.

Wish they did a reciprocating saw as I'm really in need of one. Anyone spot a deal on one of those?

I need a sander. Not looking at spending that much

I bought the Macallister SDS battery drill as I needed to find a SDS at a reasonable price for work since some damn colleague had "nicked" my Hitachi on to many occasions. The Macallister was the only reasonably priced SDS drill I could find (company would've gone ape sh*t if i'd spent £300+ on one!) that had decent torque power.

Whilst it does not get beaten to death, a few holes here & there most days (not on a daily basis) or quite a few when installing CCTV it has not let me down for the couple of years use it has had & made the job of drilling holes pretty easy. Not as good as a nice blue Bosch but much much cheaper. I haven't regretted the purchase yet.

I bought quite a powerful one from Homebase, which came with 4 blades and a 3 year warranty. Works exceptionally well and takes standard fitting blades so you can buy expensive ones if the job requires. Bunnings have them also. Homebase will price match so use this picture from bunnings if needed friends. 32305815-S1jqv.jpg

that is a good deal how long do u think it will last for then?

do you get any disks with the angle grinder?

Voted hot for the poster's arithmetical skills.

Had a sander, drill and angle grinder for about 7 years - still going strong. Not as refined as my bosch blues but cost about 1/5 of the price and do what they are meant to.

Yeah, I've already seen those two at B&Q (online and in person) but they're not on offer so not a deal per se.
There is this Titan one at Screwfix, currently on sale at £39.99 (down from £64.99) that seems my best bet at the moment - screwfix.com/p/t…639

Thanks just bought 2 drills nice saving
