Get dealGet deal

Find out the weight before you buy. Could be very heavy!


I've found this truvo detector to be good (purchased it seperately a few months ago when I moved into a new place), obviously it's not infallible and should use with caution but it has saved my bacon finding wires run in walls, you get a solid tone when it detects metal and a beeping tone for a live wire


Read the instructions carefully. It is clearly not a professional device, but can prevent you from doing damage. I moved to a new rented unfurnished place and wanted to put a Ikea cabinet for bathroom storage. I only needed two drilled holes in the bathroom to fix it. Thanks to the stud detector I found I could not drill exactly at the height the cabinet had to be fixed. This probably saved me from drilling the (metal) plumbing and causing major damage in the flat. I know it would have not worked on non-metal plumbing, but still, I am glad I used it.


Buy Bosch Blue, Bosch Green for light stuff only.


I don’t find the Bosch metal / stud detector to be very good. Also my Bosch SDS drill died so not enamoured with Bosch domestic products. That said, my small battery drills and screwdrivers have been great and this looks a good deal if they work and continue working.

You really need to understand the circuit function first. For example take a faulty guitar amplifier. Assuming the power supply and speaker is okay.. You could check the output of the guitar pick-up, seeing if their is a signal. If okay, you would check the first stage of the pre-amp, if there is the expected signal output here, you would move up to the next stage. Eventually, you would find no output from one of the stages --- were the fault lies. Other uses included, digital circuits, checking for clock and expected logic signals. SWMP's although, you shouldn't mess with these. Video circuits etc etc. It's the Swiss army knife for the electronic engineer. If you have not heard of one before, then you are wasting your money buying one as you won't know how to use it. Buy a multimeter for a few quid.

check out the photos, item by item they look the same, I have not had any problems with the quality, but if top quality is what you want, buy dremel originals. Most people may not use every item in these kits buy for £9.99 or £15.59 they still offer great value


Not the same item, from experience I avoid Maplins due to poor quality of their stock.

Dremel 800 cordless tool @ £32.27 Rapid Electronics
Dremel 8000 cordless tool with Li-ion battery.Also included is a soft bag,charger and 60 original dremel accessories .

That was as hot as a faux fireplace. Too bad.


Wow, that is misleading.


I have expired it -time delay,but thanks for the additional comment


Deal either needs to be changed or expired - the £32.27 is for a battery only - it does not include the cordless tool as the deal suggests.


Fair do's thanks for the comment

Fair enough, but for those people that want both the normal remote-only version AND the optional USB interface, this seems to be the cheapest by far! Currently, it seems Amazon is the only place cheaper and that only saves you £2, loses the USB interface and you won't get £5.07 worth of whatever for 7 pence !!! This deal only costs £35.99 if you spend £5.07+ on other stuff, like batteries for example!


http://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/Build-Your-Own-Robot-Arm/product/B002HXTONC http://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/ROBOTIC-ARM-KIT-INTERFACE-CONSTRUCT/product/B005ERFUXG They frequently drop to the £30 mark or less.


To be fair, this is only £2 more than the currently cheapest price for the remote-only kit. Maplins now charge £44.99 without the optional USB interface.


Never seen it with the remote and usb. I got the usb version from maplin for just under £30 delivered with batteries (QuidCo + voucher + promo on batteries). At £30 it was an ok piece of kit, but for £40+ I would have been very reluctant. An alright price for this kit, but I'm not voting either way as I can't see having the remote and usb interfaces together making it worth £15 more then the standard single input kits.


Please note, I accept no liability if your incorrect usage of this robot arm accidentally rips your cock off! :P

Providing they fulfil the order without taking too long then you will at least still get a good deal, even though it took longer than expected. I would give them a prod now and again to let them know that you are still thinking about it ;) An email or three and a few phone calls when you get a chance. It's fortunate that you are not in any rush. I hope it all works out okay for you.


It was definitely in stock when I ordered. The explanation I was given was that their inventory reporting system couldn't cope with the 'inrush' of orders (which actually amounted to only 2 or 3 units, as it turns out) and reported the stock level incorrectly. My main gripe is that they took payment and then didn't inform me of their inability to deliver within a reasonable time. Inexcusable for an ecommerce business in this day and age really. I've decided to wait as I don't need the thing urgently, but I am slightly concerned that their supplier is something of an unknown quantity to them and doesn't appear to be the same one as used previously. But then again staff cluelessness could be the real explanation.


The special offer has ended probably because it's now late January, therefore the price has returned to it's original price. If they have accepted the order they are legally obliged to sell at that price. However it is a bit of a nuisance having to wait for things, especially if it's for a long period of time. They must be ordering direct from China but even then, 5 weeks is a long time. The 120 day back order you quote must be a mistake. I started a new order to test whether they would accept when there was no stock and it did go as far as payment. I wasn't going to pay again so didn't go any further. It did show that the item was not in stock and was on back order at that point so I think you would of known that the order wouldn't get despatched until stock arrived. It's a fair wait but it looks like the price will still stand if you are willing to wait. If it's any consolation, they did mess up a bit with my orders. Another item I needed and was waiting for most of all was also on a back order although the expected due by date was only a few days. I spoke to one of them who told me that it was now in stock and might go out that day and he said he would chase it up the following day. It didn't go out that day but he he did chase it up and sent me an email with a number he claimed I could use to track the item the following morning but the tracking number didn't work. I had to contact them again to find out that there was no tracking number because it had been despatched via Royal Mail 1st class post. I did receive it the next day so apart from the hassle it did work out okay. My apologies for the inconvenience of having to wait. You should still get it at a good deal if you are willing to wait. Saying that they haven't used that supplier before doesn't mean that they won't receive it or whether it will be delayed any further. Have a little faith, there is no reason that their supplier shouldn't fulfil the delivery. The person you spoke to probably didn't know much about it and painted a bit of a negative picture. Some of them are a bit clueless in my experience. Phoning them up and hassling them in order to put a little pressure on them to sort it out should help. I have now marked it as expired.


I phoned them up myself today after ordering, paying and waiting a whole week for delivery or some info. I was told that they wouldn't have any stock until the end of Feb. It also transpired that they hadn't used this supplier before and therefore couldn't be sure if they would actually arrive by then. Not impressed!

Might be an idea if Sony stopped selling recordable media then , and recordable devices, recordable media is of course needed in most cases to play these "backups" They get paid on either side of the coin.


Wasn't a massive buyer of DVD's then installed XBMC on my original Xbox1. The idea of having a library and collecting video is now seared into my brain, my DVD collection now numbers in the hundreds (if not more).


the hacking teams and there work do not go unnoticed by the console makers , in fact i would say they get alot of there inspiration from these hacking teams . i still use my xbox 1 to watch tvcatchup . still a great machine if modded . if not modded it would have gone in the bin and ended up on a rubbish pile in the third world somewhere , where children may have to burn it to extract the copper and this burning of plastic releases cancer causing smoke . mod your machine ...think of the children :D
