As mentioned above they identical to a set of Marples Irwin set I have, they sell a lot of tools that look like the originals before they are labeled.
Great for the cheese board
thanks great deal (angel)
Chip off the old block
I had one of these from Maplin but it's no match for a Dremel. 1) The electronic speed control failed so it would only work at it's minimum speed I.e. 8000r.p.m so there's not enough torque to do anything. 2) It doesn't keep the speed constant under varying load like the Dremel.
This type of tool at Lidl this week - £20 I think
I'm on Rutland's mailing list as they appear to be sole importers for some stuff. Can't honestly say their special offers are really competitive.
Not much difference with this.
Yeah this jig is used to join 2 pieces of worktop together. It's not for sink cutouts
Did ours ourselves without a jig When fitting the sink inset, we drilled near corners, then used a jigsaw to get away from corners then cut the main parts using a saw. Worktop is 50mm thick so took a while. Jobs a good un
That's cheap! I paid 145 for two corners so 4 cuts and a sink cut out. In Nottingham though.
Thanks for the replies, think I'll get someone in to do it. Heat added anyway as good deal !
Any idea how much a tradesman would charge for 2 corners cutting in Leeds ?
Uhmm I had heard good things about these but I have never seen them in the flesh.
avoid this, I got this deal last time round... falls apart, with only light use...
Yes I've had one for a few years now. Far better than those little ones in Aldi. This is in another league. However (as stated earlier) it doesn't come with the feather boards and is a right pain without them.Factor them in for the final cost. It is a bit bulky and once it's put together it's a case of unbolting the legs to store it away again so it's best for larger sheds/workshops. Worth £99 but not £199.
This is nothing like the tiny thing they had in Aldi.
Looks good anyone own one ?
The Charnwood I found is £67 but only supports 1/4" routers and its a bench top not full size? Here is the floor standing model Charnwood W014
This is a rowter, you need a rooter ;-)
Mine arrived today and it's awesome, can't believe how well made it is for the price! :)
Will be interesting to see if the code still works after midnight...
Heat from me
Sent you a trade to keep you quiet ;)
I would tend to agree with you tolester, particularly as the honing guide is included. I guess it boils down to what you're going to be using them for, this set offers slightly more leeway for smaller mortices, etc due to the size increments.
You can get the stanley dynagrip set which includes 5 chisels with strike cap and sharpening stone, honing kit off amazon for 19.99 if u r prepared to wait a couple weeks for delivery. Better set imv
I have one from work, they are crap. :-)
Wish I'd seen this last week!
