Does the silver one have a real stainless steel surround or just silver plastic like the others? After cancelling my order directly from Nest (with install for £229)due to the 6 week delivery date, .I've been waiting for the "Stainless Steel" version to come back in stock on the Screwfix website, which currently comes with free Nest stand worth £34.99 Ordered! :D
Only 150mm diameter. Can't recall ever seeing a circular saw that small.
Will you be stuffing her as well? ;)
Could come in handy as I'm cooking the mother in law this Christmas .... :p
Could come in handy this year since the mother-in-law is cooking the Turkey!!! :p
You can get them cheaper on eBay. Plus these ones make your TV stick massively.
I've had mine for nearly 3 years now and the only thing to break is a plastic clip which doesn't spring back anymore, I would say that happened towards the end of the first year but it doesn't effect the funcuality I'm a carpenter so mine gets a lot of heavy use compared to diy usage
I purchased one of these last Spring and have found it really useful and sturdy. The opening and closing procedure takes some getting use to but I feel it was worth the money.
I have one of these, couple of plastics cracked after about a year, its still functional but cant help but think there maybe better alternaives/designs.
Keter is a controversial Israeli company which makes plastic products. It’s subject to various boycotts as it operates on land forcibly removed from Palestinians.
It's the makers
Good deal 😁 (y)
Especially the same branch, click and collect.
Just need this to complete the perfect purchase
This looks useful, thanks
How ironic it would be if someone wears this clobber to rob a Toolstation (excited)
Cheap rubbish I’m afraid
Then the website is wrong. I've been at a senior level in motors for 30 years and both brushed and brushless motors will react to the load demanded of them.
Brushless means there are no carbon brushes required to contact the stator winding. This results in a better power delivery and negates the need to replace the brushes periodically. This also generates less heat and the motor may be controlled more effectively with electronics. Toolstation offer these previous models which are perfectly adequate for most tasks but if you are a regular user then brushless is the way to go.
It was copied and pasted from a website (y)
Not correct. Motors are inherently stupid machines that will attempt to deliver whatever power is requested of them. That's fine until that power is beyond their thermal capability or the torque demand is beyond what they are capable of delivering, either of which will result in excessive temperature and a burnout situation.
"Brushless motors mean: better efficiency, a motor that lasts 10 X longer, 25% more power, and 50% longer run time!" According to the Milwaukee website. I have the Fuel impact driver and drill set with 4Ah batteries and it's a very nice set. Batteries last ages.
This is a great drill and the batteries last ages. They charge in around 40mins. The drill has loads more power than my last 18v dewalt with 2ah ni-cad batteries.
Ah is not related to power. An 18v 2.0ah battery has exactly the same power as an 18v 5.0ah battery. It's the run time that would be less. 2.0ah is plenty for most jobs, especially with 2 batteries and a reasonably fast charge time.
comparing the two, bnq charges in 30 mins and the toolstation one charges in 60 mins , even though they have the same battery size - can this be true?
Says brushless on the side of the drill. Just zoom in on the B&Q pic.
i am considering this one as i have 8% off B&Q to use - however its not clear if its brushless or not amazon's description of the same model says brushless - i take it the deal is better but the model number is one down from the listed toolstation deal... decisions :/ :/ https://www.diy.com/departments/dewalt-xr-cordless-18v-2ah-lithium-ion-combi-drill-2-batteries-dcd795d2-gb/536007_BQ.prd
I wish they had included the echo dot instead of the google home
Ive gone a bit off nest.Thermostat only 6 months old. Was ok until it stopped working last week- wont pick up any wifi networks. Still worked without wifi for a couple of days but now just keeps rebooting and asking for time and date too be set each time. Customer service was average and was only offered a refurbished replacement which I am still waiting to arrive from Poland.
That's what I meant, thus not the big saving it first seems.
Nope £166 plus Vat at PTS, grabbed one last week.
I do need a 3rd one so will wait till BF and see what prices are like at other retailers
pay the extra for dulux £21 for 10 litre tub you use double amount with leyland too watery
i bought the contract matt. It has been used on new plaster and all the downstairs existing ceilings. It's fine. The decorator just noted that he needed 2 coats as opposed to Dulux... Cheers OP
Cheers pal, great video. Didn't know this and I was just about to buy the contract matt as its cheap!
Contract matt is only for new plaster:
Not the same, the 'Contract' paint is better in terms of opacity and finish
i prefer narrow. i have some 30d's in my downstairs and upstairs hallway, would go down to a 15d tho but they are a nightmare to find!
Very narrow beam angle would put me off these
No longer available ,so cold
Heat added (y)
Watched a YouTube video that showed that higher capacity batteries (i.e 4Ah vs 1.5Ah) lead to the impact driver being able to exert more torque. Obviously depends on the jobs you're doing as to whether the extra torque helps. Watch from 10 mins into video: https://youtu.be/JVMwp4Hm7OQ
Your 1st image is a few pence out and the 2nd one the VAT element is correct
Right own up which mod can’t do maths?
I bought the bare unit from ebay with the 15% code for £67.67p
Ah fair enough I did do a search but it didn’t come up. Anyway 2 batteries over one, heavier driver to use with 1 bigger battery unlike 1 smaller one, less fatigue on the arm. Always got the power with flexibility- 2 batteries over 1. Non prime price possibly more money? Problem? Just pop back to tool station who’ll sort it there and then - not sure if you’ll get that with amazon? That’s all I’ve got (excited)
Shame... our anniversary was last week
Same price direct from the manufacturer
Same price at Amazon and Argos. I bought one last week.
That was £100?
I’ve used one of these mains screwdriver testers for 30+ years. I’m still alive and well with never a mishap :S
Just because it's cheap doesn't mean it's a bargain. Personally would strongly endorse going for any of the Wiha sets referenced in the comments, but to be fair, anybody likely to actually be using these things for what they are intended for probably knows to go that way anyway.
TS have a habit of not naming their Silverline stuff because most people know it's crap. The guy in TS tells me in advance now whether it's Silverline as he knows I'll reject it.
Yep. Chuck the tester away.
The screwdrivers mentioned are Silverline. You don't need to be that well-informed to know that they are unlikely to be good quality.
Sure this is the regular price but is one of the better expanding foams that I’ve used. The nozzle and trigger system is great, and a massive bonus that you can cap it off, slot the tube in and store it away for future use. Stuff is very difficult to remove and would strongly advise everyone to wear some gloves. Disposable ones will do. Well recommended if you have any deep gaps to fill, plus it’s a handy way of blocking up any holes that might be causing rodent issues
Yep, difficult to get off, nothing really shifts it except time. The foam does come with some plastic gloves though, I recommend that they are worn
"Reusable expanding foam".......... How is this reusable does it go back into the can ? ;) (ninja)
Why's that, is it a nightmare to remove?
Just used a load of this, good stuff and mess free. Just don't overdo it and damp any areas down first - finally don't get it on your hands!
I was comparing toolstation and screwfix rads. Screwfix have Kudox premium radiators with free trv valves which worked out a little cheaper for my whole house
You probably are (excited) (cheeky)
Good deal great brand, use less water so heat up quicker than average (according to marketing claims) and so use less gas. Our experience is that we replaced whole house with Barlo branded radiators, and haven't looked back.
Not many are available for delivery anymore
What's the difference between Toolstation Barlow delta range and Screwfix Barlow compact range ?
Neither do I so basically you are agreeing with my original comment lol! Anyway 'natural'' daylight is anything from 5500k to 7500k, a sunny day being 5500k so you're probably simulating a cloudy day (provided you have high CRI bulbs) Here's a link so you can get the effect just right in your kitchen and bathroom yujiintl.com
You should stop using your phones and pcs with immediate effect then. They the biggest offenders. It seems you the only one who knows about LEDs anyway. And I don't buy cheap LEDs from eBay as they tend to be dangerous most of times from no covers to misleading colour temperature and lumens.
You obviously don't know much about LED's or indeed colour rendering as very few LED's give off anything close to natural light. If you want your kitchen to look like an operating theatre, good for you. A cheap unbranded set of 6500k as Dianne referred to are unlikely to have a high colour rendering index and probably will have an unnatural amount of blue spectrum which could cause irreversible damage to the eyes at worst or eye strain at best, loads of research out there.
I've got 12 in my kitchen for around 4 years now. They ones with glass cover. Only 1 failed so far. I know what you mean about fewer leds design but it didn't really bother me.
We had Eco Light GU10’s in all our fittings but they didn’t really last long (under a year in some cases) especially the 8 in the kitchen. The ones nearest the cooker soon filled up with what I assume was grease from cooking as they weren’t sealed. We also had a couple of others fail, going noticeably dimmer than the rest, I got sick of changing them so I swapped them all out for the e-Luminate lamps. Granted they are a slightly more focused beam and slightly warmer, they’ve all lasted with none of the issues we had with the Eco Lights. Another annoyance with the Eco Light lamps was they were changing the design as time went on, using fewer and different sized LED’s which was really noticeable and annoying looking at mismatched lamps (for me anyway)
