Cheap with a big but

sander will vibrate your hand so much it will remove all feel of it inside a minute, jigsaw is the most wavy cutting of any i have ever used

leaving you with an overpriced drill.

B&D isn't the quality brand it once was unfortunately.

I reserved these a few weeks ago but ended up an alternative product - Worx. They seem ok and well worth 30 quid.

Seem shot from me, I've reserved a set. I think the will be more than adequate for general occasional DIY - not for day to day week to week stuff

Would have been nice if the drill had a hand chuck and a second hand hold but hey

The sander itself is £23 on Tesco.com
The jigsaw is £20 on Tesco.com
The drill £27 on Amazon

above are just quick rounded up price checks for the individual items

I bought this set a few weeks ago and certainly find the sander to be fine - used it for well over a minute (about 15) and no problem really. Maybe you have limp wrists?

It's a basic piece of kit which is ok for those doing the odd bit of DIY around the house. At the end of the day you get what you pay for so if you want it for a bigger project then you're better off spending a bit more on quality tools.

Hey I may be a bit limp wristed.....:oops:


maybe it's because i now have a very good sander, that the b&d feels so bad to me, maybe others wont find it so bad?

Just personal opinion anyway, I appreciate at this price they wont be wonderful, but felt the B&D was a bit too far down the cheap and cheerful route for me, so i bought something a bit better.

I recommend a 1/4 sheet sander like this:
diy.com/diy…823

its easy to handle, and if you buy the paper as a roll:
screwfix.com/cat…ade
or
screwfix.com/cat…ade

it makes it really cheap per sheet, much much cheaper than the precut with velcro on

1 at each of my locals, have reserved and collecting later.

This used to be available online at homebase for £30 - I've found the cached page in google searches.Argos and Homebase are basically the same people anyway. Its not available now but they might have this in some homebase stores but unlikely-worth a look if your in there though

This deal is actually a repost of a month ago see ]http//ww…er-

personally my take on sanders - They usually take a bit of hammering and start to deteriorate. My non bosh on the dust comparment which was secured by and interference fit now falls off as as dust and friction had worn the fit down until it became lose - that was a different brand to this and it was less than two weeks old

Agree!
Furthermore the drill is extremely noisy and you won't be able to hear anything for a couple of minutes after drilling.
Jigsaw is ok to cut up to 15-18mm plywood or chipboard. Any thicker and it becomes very difficult to control and also the cut goes on an angle (don't use this to cut worktops!)
Personally I have a Makita cordless Hammer-drill which I use to drill through anything; lightweight, powerful and reliable.
Costs a bit more but you won't need another one ever again.
I had mine for 7 years and has done some tough work, also battery life is still good.
