All DIY Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2020
Bought one of these a few years back. Great bit of kit. Absolute must for painting fence panels!
Indeed, paid £7.50 in December via Amazon

This. Compared to the other ‘Impossible’ licensed jigsaws this one is easy peasy. I found the Jurassic World one so frustrating I quit and got rid of it! This is a decent price for this one. Once Entertainers start reopening it may be worth checking in your local if you’re nearby; I’ve sometimes seen it for £7.49 or £9.99.
Hah I actually have that same picture as an A3 poster on the wall 8)
Really good quality jigsaw. All fit together nicely and no missing pieces. Not sure why it’s called “impossible”. It’s quite easy actually.
Be careful! I saw a program where a guy had cut his chappy of with one of these.
For DIY, this or the dhs680. I have lots of batteries thanks to this site. May I ask where people have found the dhs680 at a good price? Cheers Si
Yep it’s LXT so all take same 18v batteries. Recommend pairing like for like though, eg 2x 4.0ah or 2x 5.0ah
disagree with that have both brushed and brushless Makita there is a markedly difference especially battery run time.
Are these the same battery as dhp482 lxt drill
I think I read on a previous thread on one of these that someone who had owned both this and the Google Nest thought the latter was far superior. What does the Nest do that is so much better? Is it latency - which presumably can be improved by having a mesh WiFi system as I do, or is it battery or some thing else?
He said Upload speed.
Honestly I'm surrounded by dumbo's everywhere. How is poor WiFi or internet upload speed in your house a fault of this product?
So much butt hurt
Cheers for that, already had the half inch impact wrench with one 5ah battery. This is just what I was looking for (y)
I couldn’t find the other battery for £55. But I still bought the drill for £122. Great deal. Thanks Andyb83.
Ta mate. I just noticed this one had M2 in the name and the one you linked was P1 so thought there was a difference with the drill itself. Like the look of the one you posted. My was looking to spend about 100 but I like the idea one big battery (even if a bit heavier) so might stretch that bit extra. (y)
Shame, just checked my door always thought it was standard but it's 70mm in depth.
People seriously prefer to shop with this incompetent business vs John Lewis/Amazon at the same price? And that Spotify deal is useless if you're a Spotify user already as you will need a whole new account for a 6 month trial...
Thanks! That's exactly how it looks in the front of my door. Well, don't know about distances, as you said, it may be deceiving. I'm assuming if it does not trigger alerts from the road and neighbour in your case, it should not trigger for me either. Thanks.
If you can see the blue that's how short it can be set to. It looks quite deceiving here by still looking a tiny bit longer, but it's not at all. :)
It's only for new accounts.
I picked that up with the recent £10 off and £80 spend... although had to travel 25 miles as none in stock near me. from a full charge the batteries still show as full after building 6m * 1m by 0.6m sleepers raised bed
most DIY+ users aren't going to need 3 batteries. If you're going to spend £249 on a set, then I would buy: Toolstation DeWalt deal (comes with superior DCD796 and 4ah batteries) https://www.toolstation.com/dewalt-dck266m2t-gb-18v-xr-cordless-brushless-combi-drill-impact-driver-twin-pack/p88353 or ScrewFix Milwaukee deal (5ah batteries): https://www.screwfix.com/p/milwaukee-m18-cblpp2a-502c-18v-5-0ah-li-ion-redlithium-brushless-cordless-combi-drill-impact-driver-twin-pack/229hv it's a toss up between either of the two. Both are very very very good and more than enough spec any DIYer will ever need (I went for the DeWalt as any future bare tools I need are slightly cheaper than Milwaukee)
The deal from Toolstation is better i feel - https://www.toolstation.com/dewalt-dck266m2t-gb-18v-xr-cordless-brushless-combi-drill-impact-driver-twin-pack/p88353
Drill approx £80, impact driver approx £80, batteries approx £35 each.plus charger and case, good deal overall!
Good deal! 3x batteries 🔋 is a big +, check that deal as well https://www.screwfix.com/p/milwaukee-m18-cblpp2a-502c-18v-5-0ah-li-ion-redlithium-brushless-cordless-combi-drill-impact-driver-twin-pack/229hv
Love mine it's a kick ass tool to own. Invest in good bits and screws and it makes so many jobs dead easy. This thing will drive screws through just about anything. Even water pipes. Can vouch for that. Impact drivers detect when the screw has stopped turning and instead of just stripping the head off they start hammering them round - the effect is very noisy and it bashing away at the screw instead of constantly turning will drive it through things like butter. The caveat is the bits need to be strong and the screws not cheap nasty things. As someone said above once you go down this road you will has a WTF was I doing before moment. Additionally women will find you more attractive.
I've just ripped apart a used pallet and reused it to build a planter. I was actually thinking this morning (genuinely) that the impact driver is my best and most used power tool (I have an old Ryobi cordless - as in 15yrs old). It hammers as it screws (!!!) which results in a very secure connection. Even used it to secure plasterboard to stud walls - versatile!
Noise. Wake the dead and baby 2 doors down. Can't really drill with it although I do with flat wood bit. Don't have a standard chuck as hex. Raw power to drive screws and bolts with a ratchet hammer. Most here won't have a use for it
That’s one powerful cordless drill 270nm torque. Voted hot.
I have one of these, bought in a Homebase clearance. Never used it much at first but then needed to lay some plywood for vinyl and then make some shelves plus other odd jobs. It has been very impressive, better than I expected and the original wood blade is going strong. The only thing I would comment badly on is the laser. When it works it is good but it always needs messing with at first. The battery case for the lr44's is cheaply made, it could be a lot better. I have similar in a set of sights which is superior. Mine was £40 on spec. Would I pay this? I would look at other prices first to compare and decide, which of course you can do :) Decent enough machine though.
Would this be good at cutting a 45 degree angle on coving? Or something else?
Was it a TC tipped blade? Some laminates are very tough and can be very harsh on any blade.
I used the wood blade that came with it that was the best one. Then tried one on amazon which was poor massive drag.
You using the right blades? Assume you can use other non worx blades with it if thats an issue
I’ve had this one and it quickly went back, broke within a matter of days; I changed it for the cheaper Erbauer one and it’s much better (IMO)
Could try an air filter or purifier of some sort : https://www.machinemart.co.uk/p/record-power-ac400-two-stage-air-filter-with-r/ Or just a fan with an HVAC filter sellotaped to it. If dust is coming from the fabric of the building spray it with pva, paint or something to bind it, especially if it is an asbestos roof or somesuch!
Concrete sealer £12 ish from Amazon will sort the dust
Aha. Practical thinking. I've tried cleaning in many times. Unfortunately the dust remains. Needs a full refurb, which I can't be asked to do.
Hasn't had enough use to require that just yet. If it isn't being clogged with dust, the filter would last for ages.
they are oos
I guess it was a good deal for me because I bought it together with the hose reel.
I thought this was a good deal. I paid £6.99 off ebay for one like this. But the £5 delivery kills this deal. Unless you can pick it up locally but I there's none near me
Agree with both of the above comments. Got this exact one with the newer hose (silver as opposed to yellow) and it leaks from the stand connector constantly, not matter how many times I try to re-fit it. Going back to Wickes with mine as soon as they start accepting returns again. Very poor quality.
Bought last year but found it leaks often from the connection to the stand itself.
I've had one for years with no problems, i wall mounted mine though and it suits me fine.
Got this for £30 at wilko, its not the best, but does the job.
I got this and it's awful, be glad it's out of stock
Yet Toms hardware have Intel rated as best gaming and second in productivity the other day:
Would have to be mental to buy intel
I have two empty dewalt boxes and about 10 dewalt tools, none have ever been in a box, they are in a locked tool chest in the garage.
People buy these boxes strip the guts add foam and make storage for other tools or bits and bobs. Too much negativity around profit or usability :p (y) Had no idea people are feeling this way about them. (lol)
brilliant Drill, pretty certain I paid under £100 , but that was years ago, and its 100% worth this price anyway, the torque comment is kinda true for a newb, as in a non pro user might well get caught out, as it does have serious power, but its a cracking all around combination drill. I love the feel of this in the hand, but cant get on with the 700 series at all as I find theyve expanded the above trigger transition to the body so that it stops me grabbing the torque/drill/hammer ring :( really frustrating not being able to pick up a lighter weight model in the same set as generally i'm very happy with the dewalt set up. I live near a major power tool retailer and came accross a whole bunch of the drill fitting inserts for the toughboxes (cases) where they had obviously broken down the drill sets exactly as posted above... I picked up a few from the trash to potentially bastardise in a bigger case at some point as I've bought my stuff piecemeal as it seems to be the cheapest way ...
.... and then have to find a home for the box that I don't need. The handle comes with the drill body as standard.
Most company do sell them out the box. Normal company buy the full kits and sell everything individually I.e drill body, batterys, box, charger make more profit that way
Great more stuff for me to step On
none at 2pm today
How long were the queues to get in?
Ah i never posted it, but someone else did back in October: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/lego-city-garage-centre-60232-3315894 They had some at my local store as well but decided the sets not that great so passed on it on the hopes it would go down further but sold out about 3 week later. Obviously this is probably the bet price atm if you can find it.
Where's the deal for that one and the photo of the price.
£7.90ish from US store if your all set up for that.
Fab tip indeed, totally forgot about that - added and credited (highfive)
Ditto, lots of projects with the kids mid home working XD
Don't forget about the PSN Top Up deals on ShopTo. £10 for £8.85 here (y)
All good mate, same here too, super busy with work and kids :)
We await with anticipation.
Mine will be delivered tomorrow so I'll let you know.
Well, they still have i5-9400 on sale for £169.99 and in stock, so I'm not too sure why they can't fulfill now.
This replaced the i5-8400 which was released October 2017 and AMD still don't have a 6 core desktop APU over two and a half years later. That's the one area where they are lacking but that is soon to remedied with 6 and 8 core Zen 2 APUs.
I just got an email, Estimated arrival date: June 19 2020fingers crossed it isnt an i3
Note the 'light chiselling'. Any significant breaking will overheat it. Taking tiles off is about the limit. A very good tool though and we'll worth this price
Yes, SDS and SDS+ are compatible. Only SDS Max (for heavier use) is different and incompatible with SDS/SDS+
They are compatable anyway, i think everything is now sds+.
I've got one and can confirm the tool holder is SDS-Plus
Noticed this states only sds chuck, is this why the price of the sane model varies between sds and sds+
