just used it a little. Cable is short at about 1.8m but expect that with 2020s value end of range corded items. Variable speed only selected by firmness of trigger pull. Had no trouble with keyless chuck yet. For £20 seems a bargain.
Yeah that's what I was thing too. "They don't make 'em like they used to", as the old saying goes. Sadly true for lots of things. Stuff's designed to last a year and be replaced.
Somehow I doubt it! the only thing they will have in common is the name? :(
I don't know what they're like now but my old B&D hammer drill from about 20 years ago refuses to die, so if it's even half the drill that is it's a bargain. Heat.
Thanks, I like my t-stak & I'm gonna like it even more now
Ordered. (y) Thanks
Haha, I'm just passing the virus on.! I bought my first one through HUKDs ages ago....... I've now got about 15 TSTAKs in total :P
Thanks alot smephone. Didn't need it didn't want it. Ordered two ffs.
Some good discussion about these in a previous deal's comments: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/dewalt-dew170703-tstak-ii-suitcase-at-ps1980-with-voucher-3661276 I've personally got a load of these. You can fit most power tools in them such as impact driver & combi drill, 115mm angle grinder, jigsaw, oscillating multitool, orbiting sander etc. They don't fit larger stuff such as circular saw, planer, sabre saw though.

I thought you're a bot, you're posting too many deals :D
I am only human after all, thanks (angel)
I'm sorry, I did not want to say that, your deals are pretty good most of the time. The price may be fair, but if it was considerably cheaper before, and more than once, also from different sellers, this will make it look worse.
Notice wickes have reduced some of these from 12mm to 10mm but kept price the same. Needed some of a type I laid 4 years ago and noticed it has shrunk a few mm.
There's some good prices on the vinyl ones too. My normal laminate has been damaged by puppy pee, I'm inclined to replace with LVT as it's waterproof!
I bought these recently. Quality is good for the price. Make sure you check all the boards before laying for visual defects so you can take them back and swap them / get a refund on those packs once you've finished. Don't make my mistake and put down an underlay thats too thick (over 3mm) as the board joints will move when walked on
Have a look, there are quite a few options: https://www.wickes.co.uk/Products/Flooring/Underlay/c/1000904
I have one of these and it's bloody brilliant : best £30 I spent all year and it's cheaper here. There are complaints about the click button failing but mine is fine after 4 months and the sprays and power are lovely.
Possibly, but the 5Ah is typically about £60 and no guarantee that won't need to be jump started as well. Not really an issue if it does for the sake of two minutes with a couple of hits of wire. I still think this is better deal unless you need the extra capacity, which is unlikely unless your regularly using it on something like a grinder or circular saw. For DIY use I'd much rather have two of these for £75 than a single 5Ah for £60.
I know it’s new I bought one lol but it’s old discontinued stock i can’t tell the difference between the 5ah and 3ah weight wise. For those that don’t want to jump start it then be better buying the newer batteries.
These are new. It's not uncommon to have to 'jump start' new batteries. I've had to do it with other brands too.
Bought one of these the other day from store got it home was dead had to bump start it off my other battery by connecting them together. Wouldn’t say there’s a discernible difference between the 5ah and 3ah weight. Would recommend just buying a new one I needed mine same day so didn’t have the luxury.
So you're one of those people, who when seeing a good deal contacts the supplier - to ruin it for everyone else.
Here we go. I replied to you in the other thread and you didn't answer the points raised. I don't disagree that was a great price but the fact remains US rrp is $299 which does not in any world translate to £220 in the UK (for imports) without something not adding up... if that price comes up again via Amazon UK, then immediately go to Amazon US (.com website) and you'll find out soon enough it won't be the same. Despite being the same supplier.
No. Many many coolers, air or AIO that'll work fine with this CPU.
Was not a glitch. Contacted them, asked when I purchased. Confirmed, also limit 1 pet customer. You just got a good deal.
If you can wait for a deal on HUKD you can wait for a deal on eBay. Sort by "sold items" and there's loads. Either way, £275 is horrible price for a 5600x
As above, I've bought into the DeWalt system, I think they are excellent. But for corded stuff I also go for Makita, DeWalt, Bosch and anything that does the job. Bought an Erbauer recip saw last week to remove some bushes and it was excellent for the money.
I agree, won't ever happen. Not in their interest. It would be nice as you buy a dewalt battery, then theoretically bosch tool and it would be interchangeable, whereas currently you have a dewalt battery you have to buy dewalt tool. It's not too bad as it is, the key is to buy into the eco system early on and find the system which has tools more to your needs. I'm impressed with the amount of tools dewalt have compatible with their XR system.
Yes, the N at the end of the model means Naked. These are quite a bit more as a full kit, £375 - https://www.toolden.co.uk/power-tools/cordless-power-tools/cordless-saws/cordless-jigsaws/dewalt-dcs334p2-brushless-jigsaw-18v-with-2x-5-0ah-batteries/?gclid=CjwKCAjw-e2EBhAhEiwAJI5jgzt3Z6Yi7p9VVMyP5A4tc6wQKQKasRu5-_whDK51I3Ut9Qnc8unJqxoClHcQAvD_BwE Or £240 if you want one with a single battery - https://www.fixitpowertools-uk.co.uk/shop/powertools/cordless-powertools/dewalt-dcs334-18v-xr-cordless-brushless-top-handle-jigsaw-5-0ah-battery-new/ So if like me you already have multiple DeWalt chargers and XR batteries, this is ideal. :)
Interesting... Never heard of this issue. Maybe they resolved it in more recent designs.
Unless the EU jump on it like they did with mobile phones and USB, but the market is a lot smaller in this case so I doubt it.
Same here. It's actually turned out to be good value and I won't get rid until it's dead, but it's not a patch on loads of other drills.
the former, but it's not like a 13mm bit is a hot knife through butter and 14mm won't work. I've done more than a few 100mm timber holes with the 453, carefully.
I've got a really old one of these which just won't die. I have a 482 as well, which is shorter but noticeably heavier. My 482 has a wobbly chuck so I actually use the 453 more than you'd think. If it would just die, I could justify buying a better drill and getting rid of both the 482 and the 453. I use an SDS mostly so it's only getting light use and will probably go another ten years. If you're starting from scratch, avoid this model as said above.
Is the drilling capacity the drill bit diameter? Or the depth into the material?
the dry ptfe spray is awesome stuff. van door lock was sticky, i used graphite powder first to free it as its recommended by pretty much everyone on the net. it still wasnt working correctly so pumped it full of the dry ptfe spray and it now works like a dream. also used on a clock movement yesterday which was stopping every few hours, its run through the night and is still running which is a good sign (y)
Plus £5 delivery. None available near me to "Click and Collect"
It might do. However, it’s more about keeping the window rubbers and guide rails lubricated so that the motor can move the window glass up and down more easily, which helps prevent motor mechanism problems.
Sorry accidently hit cold (embarrassed)
Not used it on that. Does it help ward off the build up of algae type mould?
Out of interest, how much do people sell their surplus chargers for? I fancy picking up the screwfix deal as the 2x 2.0ah batteries will be useful for my orbital sander and for ladder drilling/screwing, but I have enough chargers already.
Have tried previously to get this deal at lower price. Had issue paying with visa and then sold out. Bought it now shame up in price but still cheaper than most. (y)
Pretty good price. Have some heat from me. I paid £145 for this exact combination from FFX Tools last week. When you’re comparing deals on this tool, it’s worth checking exactly which tools are included. Some of them only seem to include a reduced number of tools, most of which are just different grades of sandpaper. Also, it’s worth checking whether the TStak case provided is just an empty case, or one with the specific insert for this tool. The one which I received from FFX tools had the proper insert in it.
Or the deal I posted with charger and 5Ah battery for £201

Moisture meters don't work how you think they do. They are very good at detecting the moisture content of fire wood though, sort of meh for plaster and other building materials, they don't measure a glass of water though!
I went ahead and bought this yesterday. I already own a proper wired dremel, but being genuinely honest, there has been so many times I wish I had a cordless machine. Been loads of jobs where I just couldnt be bothered getting the dremel out, along with an extension. Obviously only going to use this on mild tasks such as polishing, sanding, cutting plastic e.c.t
Not sure about this one, but I bought a Parkside Moisture Meter from LIDL few weeks ago. I put it in a glass of water and it say's there's 40% moisture in it.
Multi tool with grout blade. Easy peasy
Don’t buy it, the holder lock broke on mine at second use, called customer service multiple times during past 6 months with no update at all(mad)
Have you used the Fatmax retractable and flip ones? How does that compare? The problem I can see with these flip only ones is that i'll cut my finger off while closing it...I've sliced my finger open enough times on only compact retractable ones....
Not sure you've used the Milwaukee if you think that. You literally push a button and it will fall open. Doesn't really get any smoother than that...
Yes this is true, but I'm referring to the action of opening it. Its smoother on the fatmax
Keeps going in and out of stock
You can't flick the blade out on the Fatmax though. It needs to be pulled out with your thumb.
I've tried both, the PTFE is far better IMO. Good for unjamming a lock as graphite would normally require inserting a key to spread the graphite around. also good for bike chains etc maybe just get the PTFE from screwfix? £5.49 https://www.screwfix.com/p/wd-40-dry-ptfe-lubricant-400ml/36613
No, you want something with a hammer function. This drill only has a 10mm Chuck aswell most have a maximum of 13mm which depending how big and heavy your tv is might be needed. This is purely a drill driver which does has its downfalls
Is this any good for drilling into brick walls for tv brackets etc?
I have this and the impact driver. Good and well rounded for you basic to medium-sized jobs
Hychika is actually a very good budget brand, fairly impressed with some of the stuff so far. I’d say it’s better than the equivalent brands around
If it doesn't last then Amazon just refund you,I have some doors to fit
Bought this set last year to replace a hard drive in a mac. Excellent quality and great selection of pieces. Can confirm that the blue ring is a magnetizer/de-magnetizer.
This one is better. £13.59 (lightniing deal £21.99) https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07VL3C1NW/ref=sspa_dk_detail_2?psc=1&pd_rd_i=B07VL3C1NW&pd_rd_w=BmPUR&pf_rd_p=395f87e5-7923-465a-b450-eb84f1966add&pd_rd_wg=505ga&pf_rd_r=6NTKSTNAEBFR46ZYSG0W&pd_rd_r=7b59be18-8e25-48c5-b70b-c3df57990a9d&smid=A1J1QXUXEHYKF4&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlmaWVyPUFSUEVBQVI0WVlaSzEmZW5jcnlwdGVkSWQ9QTAzMTQ1MzQyMUFGRTFJM084UEYwJmVuY3J5cHRlZEFkSWQ9QTAyNTEwMTYzOTE3QjZLQ0lZWVBPJndpZGdldE5hbWU9c3BfZGV0YWlsJmFjdGlvbj1jbGlja1JlZGlyZWN0JmRvTm90TG9nQ2xpY2s9dHJ1ZQ==
