Forgefix. They are brilliant, especially for the price. They're passivated, so won't rust, countersunk, and they go in so smoothly I never soap them. Hardly bother with a pilot either, unless very near the end. I get them from Amazon, and look at the reviews. I'd say they are on a par with turbo gold, but less than half the price. Love them.
Decking screws or stainless steel would be a better choice.
what do you recommend, and where can I find it? TIA
They are made from carbon steel, so will definitely rust if used outside.
They have loads of screws on offer. EG GOLDSCREW PLUS PZ DOUBLE SELF-COUNTERSUNK WOODSCREWS 4.5 X 30MM 200 PACK for 86p Worth a look through the section on woodscrews
Perfect for a mist coat (when watered down) as it doesn't contain any vinyl, unlike Johnstones, most Dulux, etc.
Its a cheap chalky paint, it does cover well though for ceilings, a better contract emulsion is Amstead at dulux decor centres 13.99 plus vat 10l. Its almost as good a vinyl matt, this leyland stuff sadly aint just too soft a finish.# Irish man, why not rebuy this at screwfix and then take the 2 drums back to johnstones centre. say wife changed her mind, they will match screwfix even online prices if asked, for the future
Wouldn’t go that far, covers pretty good but it’s not hard wearing more a flat Matt finish more suitable for site work I’d say.
Don't agree. I've used both and this white Leyland is perfect for ceilings and mist coats etc
This paint is awful, far too runny. Pay the bit extra and just get Dulux, saves alot of time and effort
Never found mini rollers for gloss and satin wood much good. Find a brush much more effective, just make sure you don't put too much paint on your brush and you're good to go.
3 x mohair fabric - thinest roller- is for use with varnishes and gloss paints. 4 x hairy - emulsion paint 3 x foam - gloss paint
you sure? i am not expert but i thought the different rollers LEFT different finishes rather for being used for different wall types
The first review comment under the deal on the Screwfix website helps you there: "Three different types of foam and pile rollers for different texture finishes." Basically the thicker ones are for textured wallpaper and the like, thinnest ones for flat ceilings.
3 sets ordered and heat added. Big painting project upcoming so perfect timing. IME their No Nonsense range is usually very good VFM.
Bought! Thanks OP needed something like this! Got tcb as well so another 20poff lol
Carbon monoxide detector should be close the unit, like boiler (which are usually place in the kitchen or bathrooms) or solid fuel burners. Smoke detector should be away from kitchen. It save the trip switching alarm off every time the toaster is on or frying pan. Kitchen- only heat detector + carbon monoxide if boilers present, Corridor, bedrooms- smoke detector,
More CO risk from open fires/log burners, which is why they are required for any new appliance nowadays
Awesome deal, these should be fitted as standard in all homes with a gas supply.
Sadly nothing exciting
Heat for effort.
Gutted. Been waiting for a decent deal on a drill aswell. This would have been ideal
It'll be automated, they'll have had at least one somewhere. Their site is just useless for knowing anything more than that.
No stock otherwise a great deal
Why do Screwfix staff even bother changing the website if they know they have zero stock anywhere in the country?
No stock anywhere that I could find, needs to be expired IMO. (flirt)
£29.95 with delivery in Amazon if you have Prime. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Keter-Sherwood-Outdoor-Plastic-Furniture/dp/B016I9E5KC/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1526923468&sr=8-3&keywords=keter+storage+box
Calm down i had a heavy night we all make mistakes, no need to be so angry about a plastic box (angel)
One is even 2yrs old (excited)
Those deals are sooooo last year....... Literally!
How observant of you! however they are all OOS.... so irrelevant! like your post. so at the moment my post is the cheapest! thank you!
Fire prevention is an important part of owning a home and should be the responsibility of the home owner and not putting a burden of the fire service
I think best way to solve this issue is if you start making your own bacon lol
Or save the emergency service from wasting time by having them install one that will defiantly work...
0800 389 5525 That's the number for a free Safe and Well visit if you live in the West Midlands area. Call the number, answer a few short questions and an appointment will be booked for the local station to come around and complete the safe and well visit including fitting free smoke alarms. (y) 🚒
I have a smoke alarm that goes off every time the missus burns my bacon. Will this or the free Fire Service ones only go off it it's a real fire and not just some well done bacon?
I downloaded the app Monday evening, got a notification about the voucher on Tuesday morning, but the app didn't show the voucher until the evening. I have used the voucher on an order I was making.
Nothing to do with the deal I know but not a great app at all. Just redirects to the web in a restricted view. Shame on you screwfix. Great deal btw.
I've saved £25 by not downloading the app XD
Incidentally, if you can't think of anything yet, they often send vouchers like this if you're on their physical mailing list. I had one this month already, plain old-fashioned spend £30 get £5 just for existing. Less incidentally, unless it's changed, they'll only give Paypal refunds as store credit, not cash refunds like any other payment method. So don't.
Downloaded the app for first time last night and signed in using an existing account. The voucher has just come through.
Awesome! CR2016 and CR2025 seem to come up a lot, but everything I need is CR2032! Thanks for this.
So because I don't have children the fact I read that article when it was first published and have a little common sense that small objects that contain toxic materials may be harmful to children is not important? However if I were to have children I'd be some sort of hero?
It was because you were so blasé about it that I guessed you didn't understand what it's like having kids.
Please explain how you managed to infer that. You're not wrong, I'm just interested how sarcastically pointing out that everyone is already aware that small batteries and children might not be a great idea is indicative of not being a parent.
Probs a reponsible parent.
Not in stock for collection or delivery, greyed out
Yo-yo one works spot on with the pressure washer nilfisk
The yo-yo one from Argos was brill when we got it home. Came with 5yr warranty and also spray gun and carry bag which is super handy. The hose looks like plastic and I’ve used it with the nilfisk pressure washer. I can not recommend it enough compared to the hozlock
It could, but you would need to unwind it fully before using or it wouldn't be able to expand again. I would have thought if you want pass through it would shorten the life of the hose, depending on the design of the reel. I like this type of hose, but after having three different makes which all failed quite quickly despite being treated like glass, I've ended up just sticking with a normal hose. Certainly wouldn't use it with a pressure washer.
I've not tried these new hoses, a couple of questions if you can please.... it says 30m and expands to twice its size, that still leaves 15m? Can this be put on a hose reel?
At this price it wouldn't get the ladbaby stamp of approval.
Tempted to vote cold so people stop posting Stanley organiser deals. Please stop!!! I have close to 20 damn organisers now. 🔥
Oh yes because the world works by charging based on the cost of raw materials! Common guys this is worth £9.99 if it provides that or more value to you. Good quality, durable and useful. Imho seems good value £10 but yes usual £20 would be to steep for me
you guys must be comparing the old boxes. these new ones in particular are absolutely rubbish compared to what they used to be. latches are now plastic which are tough to operate (an impossible task if you have arthritis) and the lid hinges break very soon once you have the case filled. looks tougher than what it actually is
They are very sturdy boxes that can take a lot of weight. Mine must have 10KG of screws in each one and they get lumped about and haven’t cracked or split like many of the cheap trade cases that sometimes come with screw sets. The compartments are also removable so you can take a tub of one certain screw to your work area rather than lumping the whole case up some ladders. The clips on the side of the box interlock with other boxes. Easily worth £10 each. If you’re buying boxes for 50p it’s a false economy because they won’t last 5 minutes and they’ll be going to landfill which isn’t very environmentally friendly, is it???
That's why they wobble around when I try to drill a hole!
You do know the deal is over and they are now full price
expired, now £13.79
He was replying to someone comparing them to hex-shank bits.
Extreme is much better, but they used to do them without the SDS shanks but not now.
Get the extreme version much better and not much more money.
Also DEWALT EXTREME 2 SDS PLUS MASONRY DRILL SET 4 PC (44568) £4.99
I second this. Haven't looked back
I can concur, the Bosch blue bits are excellent for all materials including tiles, no hammer function is required for masonry jobs and they drill a cleaner hole because of that!
I have pair of these. Only use when wall plugs are too long for the hole I drilled. 8)
Try the irwins I have a few quite nice
Remarkably cheap, but one of those tools where it really is worth going for a high-quality one. Although if you don't use it much, you probably don't want to spend £15+ on a CK or Bahco. But if you do, you'll really appreciate the difference.
My labrabor is well happy. (highfive)
I have this its not bad
im screwed if i dont get this
I've had this set for a few years and it's all good. But the case is cheap and nasty - the clips will brake off after a few goes.
Looks like Hex holder on LH drills, sometimes drill does not run true.
13 x brad point wood bits (2 x 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 2 x 5, 5.5, 6, 6.5, 7, 7.5 and 8mm), 12 x metal drill bits (1.5, 2, 2.5, 2 x 3, 3.5, 4, 4.5, 5, 5.5, 6 and 6.5mm), 3 x masonry drill bits (6, 7 and 8mm), 2 x holesaw bits (32 and 44mm), 1 x mandrel bit, 7 x nut drivers (5, 6, 8, 10, 11, 12 and 13mm), 1 x countersink, 1 x magnetic screwdriver bit holder, 11 x 50mm screwdriver bits ((PH#1, 2 x PH#2 and PH#3), (PZ#1, 2 x PZ#2 and PZ#3) and (slotted 5, 6 and 7.2mm)), 49 x 25mm screwdriver bits ((2 x PH#1, PH#2 x PH#2, and 2 x PH#3), (slotted 4, 5 and 7.2mm), (PZ#1, 2 x PZ#2 and 2 x PZ#3), (hex 4, 5, 6 and 7) and (T15, T20, T25, T30 and T40)) in a tough plastic storage case.
This review makes sense to me: "In summary - let's wait for version 2 where hopefully the sound quality issues will be addressed and then this device will be welcome in my home."
£20 on Amazon so not a huge saving- not bad reviews but I think the more powerful speaker version is the one to go from (reading the reviews)
Pick mine up tomorrow hopefully. Will let you know. Not expecting great/loud sound but JBL stuff normally sounds reasonably good.
I'm hoping this will be a good buy for nursery/baby room. Ability to have dim light for night feeds and play white noise type sounds to help soothe to sleep all without using any plug sockets sold it for me.
what's the sound like?
Is this on special? I thought that was the normal price? Same price in B&Q which is the standard price.
Ah no good for me - the missus uses it to sit on while watching me working and no chance her behind would fit on that!
Depth is 300mm, but it's the width at 600mm that's a bit nippy. Too easy to go off the edge.
The width is 300mm.
I don’t know anyone whose feet are two foot long?
Nice one, thank you!
Yep. Something like this will not rust. https://www.screwfix.com/p/smith-locke-brass-40mm/6624j
want to give an example?
