try the worx angle grinder at £11 and the black and decker scissors for under a tenner too

About six months ago Argos reduced the price of the Worx WX650JSL to £15 and I bought one despite several reports that this model couldn’t cut a straight line. I‘ve had no problems with mine and in my opinion it was great value at £15. The jig saw now on offer looks exactly the same. The main difference seems to be that it has a 550watt motor instead of the 650watt in the WX650JSL. Also it appears to come with five blades where as the WX650JSL came with twenty one. The WX650JSL came in a very sturdy plastic case although it not clear if this one comes in the same case. At £13.33 it still looks like a bargain to me.

I bought the same one last year - an absolute bargain with all the blades and decent case, like you say, I've had no problems with cutting a straight line, although I can't say it's been overused!

Reserved mine, added heat - cheers

I got all three and they seem great, just checking out website, new Argos cat says if you register within 30 days you get your 3 year warranty taken to 6 years

BONUS! BONUS! BONUS! BONUS! BONUS! BONUS!

Its true, not only cheap (thanks owlass) but as said, if you register your worx products at [url]www.worxtools.co.uk[/url] within 30 days from purchase you get your 3 year warranty taken to 6 years, now that all adds up to a bargain.

Cheap+3+3 in Worx speak (See website)

May be cheap as their branding seems to have changed. The Logo in orange is now the same logo but in green on the web site, or it could be they have a consumer range coloured orange and a Pro range coloured green?

Excellent, didn't know about the extended warranty offer
The green is the pro range.

Hi,

I bought Worx Circular Saw 710/7212. The Argos Web Site specifically states 1500 Watt for this catalogue number and states model WX446 BUT I recieved the WX14SCA 1400 Watt, which incidentally is the model given in the previous catalogue Autumn/Winter 2007 which is where this catalogue number is from and why it is clearance. Looks like a mistake on the web site, a simple cut and paste of the entire title and description of the new catalogue number 711/2173. I had a look on the Worx website under products etc but the link for the WX446 model doesn't work so I can't compare the difference (except for the wattage) as I don't trust the Argos descriptions because in the previous Argos catalogue it also states Laser, but from what I can ascertain neither model has this.

Bootle buck - From a Google search and a matching French Web Site seems the WX150CSL is a 1500Watt model with laser (avec laser) so you might have got a better model if that is the case!

Can't find anythin about a 6 year guarantee - the web site seems to simply state that you should register for your 3 year guarantee.

Click the orange warrantee part on Worx site

I would suggest the challenge brand ones. They wouldnt have the extended warranty thing though...

This for example, is probably better than the linked item? argos.co.uk/sta…htm

However they may be considerably cheaper if you check instore.

]http//ww…htm
that for example, I bought for £14 in store.
argos.co.uk/sta…htm
this was £6.49.

Anyone know how the click and reserve deal expires ? I reserved yesterday which means until "end of today" but won't get there until tomorrow. None in stock so can't reserve again. Do they release the reservations sometime over night (so I could reserve again) or do they hold on to them for a bit longer ?
Tried emailing Argos, the reply was they will answer the question within the next 2 days - not exactly helpful ! No phone numbers for shops so can't ring directly either.

Out of interest did you manage to get the 6 year warranty on the saw you bought, I can't see your model
WX14SCA on the registration page for the 3+3 year warranty of the Worx website either?

The value for column 'ImageUrl' in table 'Product' is DBNull.

Their site isn't letting registrations at the min

I believe they will be released at midnight, so should become available again for the re-reserve.

Hi bootle buck

As per my previous post I got the WX14CSA 1400 Watt model under cat number 710/7212. Rang Argos Customer Services, explained that they effectively have the WX446 under both cat numbers (711/2173 & 710/7212) but with very different prices on their web site and they agreed to let me have the new catalogue number WX446 price overidden to match the clearance cat number and so I took my WX14CSA back and now have a WX446 for £21.59.

It is only the web site that is wrong, as the previous catalogue that actually lists 710/7212 has the model as WX14CSA.

Not yet tried to register it on Worx Web Site.
