£18.99 for a coloured box! More money than sense.....cold imo :(
@MissGemgem Thanks for the feedback (y)
The sander attachment isn’t very good in my opinion, the pads stick using a loop system and I have found the plastic triangle part always seems to melt a little and so the pads stop sticking to it after a while. Sanding a bannister, especially if rounded would be much better done by hand. Strip back paint using a heat gun first if you’re taking it all the way back, the £10 one from screwfix was great then sand down by hand.
Thinking of getting a multi tool. What are they like at doing intricate sanding ...in my case a stair bannister?
My Bosh multitool died after 2.5 years.
Avoid Curries like the plague. Terrible customer service.
How long is a piece of string? Depends on where you live (e.g. Devon vs Orkney!), what kind of washing machine you have (a modern 1400rpm washer will leave your clothes wet but not dripping), what kind of clothes you wash (e.g. a synthetic or linen thin fabric shirt will dry far more quickly than a pair of jeans, towels or other cotton stuff). If you dry indoors, air the room often or your walls will grow mouldy (hint: that moisture on the clothes must go somewhere!).
a basic question , will just Washing machine be sufficient during winter or we need a dryer ? . Are clothes coming out water dripping from Washing machines ? or just wet and can be aired indoors ?
(highfive) I personally can't stand iphones (embarrassed)
Nah that’s like saying I own a piece of soap vs a washing machine. A true analogy will be I own an iPhone 7 for 250 pounds and u buying an iPhone daft x for 1000? (lol) ;)
£100 cashback on £1000 fridge
Bought three Bosch appliances this week none of them qualify! :(
I don't think it applies to any vacuum cleaners.
You could just blow the leaves away using your mouth / lungs combination. That would probably take a bit longer though than using this futuristic contraption. So good spot OP.
Just the job for blowing (cheeky)
Thanks JB66, the zip has gone on the bag of my Bosch vacuum, It's as cheap to buy this complete unit as it is just a bag. I'll keep the old one set up as a blower.
You can borrow my mother-in-law she scares anything off, when rats see her they throw themselves on the traps..
yep, still available
I have a Bosch Steam generator also, not the same as this one but Im guessing they will work in the same way... When the iron is cold, turn the base upside down and you should see a screw, the sort that you can turn with a coin (it may have a plastic cap over it), remove the screw and pour some water into it. Shake the base, then turn upright allowing water to run out, along with any scale that has built up. Repeat this process until all scale has gone. Be sure to tighten screw back up when done. Iron should now be fine. Do not make the mistake I once did and try and do this after ironing when iron was still slightly warm. Due to this being a pressurised steam generator, when I turned the screw, it flew out and hit the ceiling (shock)
It’s 79 now!!!
I use half white vinegar and half water overnight in the tank to get rid of the limescale build up in my tefal. Works a treat, although needs a good rinse out after to get rid of the vinegary smell.
Don't think of buying this iron (or any steam generator) if you ever want to use a regular iron again. The frustration just isn't worth it!
Buy a second hand petrol one for £40 and it will still outlast this
I've had the the slightly bigger 43 for a couple of years, really like it although it is a bit bigger than we need for our lawn but the 43 was cheaper than the smaller sizes when we got it (was only £99)
Seems to be a good price.
I got one and it was no good on old hard brick. It only tickled the surfaces after 10 minutes.. I borrow a SDS hammer drill.
I have had this drill for about 6 years and it’s been brilliant. Used it to fit my own windows and doors and worked a treat. Very powerful, I agree that SDS are more powerful but this drill is more scurate than SDS. Worth having both
Any SDS drill will beat a corded or cordless drill in the vast majority of cases but then again it all depends on size and depth of what you intend to drill. If you want a drill purely for brick drilling then i would suggest SDS, the downside being is they can crack brick and punch rather large holes if your not careful especially if drilling from one side of a wall to the other. This drill will be fine for masonry, timber and steel, it’ll probably be ok for brick too to a point but thats providing you use decent drill bits as included or equivalent, also its likely to take longer and you’ll need to put more weight behind the drill ( compared to SDS )
Anyone have first hand experience on what this is like drilling through brickwork? Gotta go through some tough as fudge bricks and concrete for a job that i've been putting off for a while was told a SDS Drill (Or SDS Hammer Drill) would be better than a normal hammer drill.
Certainly. £137.50 here http://www.powertool-supplies.co.uk/bosch-gsb-12v-li-combi-drill-and-gdr-12v-li-impact-driver-twin-kit.html?gclid=EAIaIQobChMI9qvruuet3QIVyrTtCh1dYQlxEAQYAiABEgLtxfD_BwE But, FFX and others have it semi-regularly for the £130 mark. I ended up buying the green Easyimpact 12v because Wickes had it for about £48 at the time, but I've still got half an eye on upgrading to the blue/pro range.
Hammer driver ftw
Only £132 on Amazon

Life is a reflection of yourself! Get yourself checked! (lol)
Or jealous? I find some people are so lazy they don't use manufacturers warranty let alone SoGA(Consumer Act). These are great vacs, bought a previous model for £70 a couple of years ago, rarely use mains vac since.
Sarcastic or impressed?
WOW, I'm touched! :D
Re warranty - Just got Bosch to repair a 30 month old one (6 months OOW) by writing email to Quality director and saying it should have lasted longer than 2 years. They fitted new battery free too!
Quick question...you say electrically heated, how do you think heat pump ones are heated?
It's no longer available, but they have other AEG made JL own brand machines, although only 3 year warranties now. AEG service is appalling though, so if the machine is good fine, if not expect slow to non-existent repairs form their agents, "Serviceforce!"
hi can you give me the model number i as lookingat john lewis 1s today thanks
I wouldn't run a condenser in that cold a location either, nor a conventional machine without a direct vent, the condensation will be horrendous - I have done that beofre!
Ok, I’ll rescind the ‘reliabilty’ comment but can defiantly say they cost more to repair than a conventional dryer. Just read as well (incase others aren’t aware) heat pump dryers won’t work in out buildings or garages in cold weather
ordered thanks chi chi!
looks very similar to Melitta model....probably the same, except the label and prices
Don't have experience with this coffee maker, but had 4 Delonghis in the past and all broke within 2-3 years (although they were not bean to coffee, so maybe they are more robust).
Has anyone experience of one of these and a delonghi equivalent, I’m curious as to how they compare? Looks like a great machine
More importantly..... what happened to your torso?
I'm mortified. Terribly sorry. It wasn't my intention to upset you this much. The chap I was responding to seemed to take it in the somewhat silly spirit in which it was meant but I failed to appreciate there might be widespread offence. 😃
Mines come today, works well.
Looks like it would be good for certain scenarios like reaching into deep narrow places but (*explicit joke here*) the IXO Bosch screwdriver does the same thing for all other scenarios from the looks of it.
I believe these are not made for the UK market hence you can't find it on the UK site. Someone has stated in the review that you do get bits set but apparently doesn't include flat head bit...
Not sure about this, as tempting as it is the product on gearbest doesn't match with the bosch site as it should come with a bit set. But on the video it shows it with just the box and no bit set, what to do (skeptical)
Because it's blue, does this mean it's from the professional range? Reviews seem quite good, but not sure it's got the power I need. Seems a good price though. Anybody had any experience with this?
If you click on new ones, you can see the Amazon price at £39.99.
Amazing drill..bought it a few months back and has been one of my best purchases this year.
Yeah, this has a hammer function. I used it last week to assemble some flat pack cabinets and then hang them onto a block wall. Was really enjoyable (compared to my Ryobi electric screwdriver and old crap corded drill that I'd have normally used)
anyone know if i could use this to drill holes in brick walls? Or which drill should i go for to drill in brick walls in my garden? I been doing some researches, but i am very confused at the moments. Thanks.
It’s gone down again Only for prime
13mm chuck accepts bigger diameter drill bits. 10 mom is made for average diy work smaller drill bits
Selling on name only. Overpriced for the quality. Returned after cheap roller fell apart and got caught by blades after mowing half the lawn on first use!
Why would there be £4.49 delivery when it's more than £20 in price? #logicfail
What they said...
I was going to purchase this. But after the poor reviews, decided against it
It's got really shocking reviews - i was hopeful but now need to pass on this after reading up.
