Found 24th Jan
As the title says bosch angle grinder from John Lewis. They've price matched a competitor BUT thrown in the famous John Lewis 2 year guarantee! I go through angle grinders like my partner through chocolate so good deal? Couldn't get round delivery charge. Any ideas?

Cheers @badger28 - we've got a load of DIY projects on the go at the moment.
This could come in handy, especially at that price
Free to click & collect ? Or delivered with amazon prime ( same guarantee ) and price

Would recommend you use piranha cutting discs slightly more expensive but they last and last. Go through metal like a hot knife through butter
Amazon have the 50W less powerful PWS700 for £36

Both are fairly good prices, but nothing special according to CamelCamelCamel

Perfect, cheers for the advice!
What type of disc is he using in the advert? It produces no spark by the looks of it.

That’s because he is using it properly.
He's just having a bit of a think before starting up. .... either that or he's stopped to pass wind

Clearly the man in the pic is simply taking off the weld burrs gently so as not to lose strength in between the weld joints - not that I’ve any idea of what that steel structure is being used for but it looks heavy and/or is likely to be intended for some sort of support for something far more heavier.

Hence not many sparks

( I can’t believe I’ve just actually gone to the trouble defending a JL photo promoting an angle grinder )
My trade is metal work , this man don’t have a clue what he’s doing if you take weld off you don’t do it at that angle and he needs to take them welds off there sh!te
ordered....thanks OP!
You would have to be mad to use the JL warranty as Bosch courier collect next day and tend to have it back 2 days later. Just remember to register the warranty with Bosch as they won't help past a year if you didn't!

And I wouldn't touch this one with a bargepole, you can get the professional for £50 with 3 year warranty and metal gearbox.

Probably one left for £35 at screwfix using stock code 5726P otherwise Amazon for £52 amazon.co.uk/Bos…G9G
3 year warranty and built to last.

The professional blue bosch version is only £4.15 more on Ebay, industrially rated with a 3 year pro use warranty.

Sorry OP (and those who've gone and bought it) but this is poor value, you can get pro grinders for the same price or just a bit more- Hitachi, Makita, Milwaukee, Metabo, Bosch Blue, all in the £36-£55 region. No way is £40 for a DIY angle grinder a good buy.

I paid £33 for that before Christmas. It's £36 at Toolstop, but not free delivery under £50. If you've got anything else to order though it might work out cheaper for you.

I'd be inclined to go for the Hitachi myself, even though it's lower powered. I trust them more.

I doubt it would get used 10 minutes a year but handy to have
