Ok, so not quite as cheap as it has been in the past (£14.99) but I still felt this is worth posting as it is a great price for a drill that'll do all those little jobs around the home and no batteries to worry about having to maintain/charge. This'll be ready to go when you need it and keep going until you don't!

Main points:

500w (Not huge, but good enough for DIY Darren's)
Adjustable speed (Useful for drilling pilot holes and driving screws etc.)
Twin keyless chuck (No little chuck key to lose!)
Storage case (Yes, I know, yet another ruddy blow-moulded case)
3-year warranty (What's not to love about 3-yr peace of mind)

I really do think this is a fab little drill for the casual DIY'er. Removeable front grip, depth guage and hammer action if required. Can be used as a driver too with the variable speed set to low. With the 3 year guarantee, whats not to like?

Also worth a look is the attachments they are also selling. Particularly the right angle drill tool:

lidl.co.uk/en/…737

Very usefull for getting into a tight corner or angle. Cheap too, at a fiver. However, please note that if you get their paper brochure to view the attachments - the pictures/descriptions are the wrong way round. The drill attachment is the one with the black 'keyless' chuck, same as the drill. The bit holder is the one that comes with the little interchangeable driver bits. I know most of you would've worked this out for yourselves but I thought it was worth pointing out, just in case!

Best regards to all,

Phsy.

Will this be any good for using for screwing a tv wall mount into a brick wall? Sorry, I'm clueless when it comes to DIY

Yes it would be fine. If your walls are internal and just plasterboard and wooden studs, you’ll be fine just making a pilot hole first and screwing directly into the studs. If there is brick inside the wall, use this drill with a masonry drill bit and turn hammer action on. It will eat through the brick with ease. In any case other than into the studs, use decent wall plugs and good screws with big enough heads to hold the wall plate of the mount, or you can use washers behind the screw heads if the holes in the wall plate are too big for the screw heads to get enough purchase

What drill bit would you recommend with this for bathroom titles etc

What drill bit would you recommend with this for bathroom titles etc



Hi wakkaday. Ideally, you want a proper tile-cutting drill bit. they are specially designed 'carbide-tipped' bits to cut through glaze where normal drill bits can't. Here is an example on B & Q's website:

You might find something cheaper on the likes of ebay perhaps?

Best regards, Phsy.
