Thank you (highfive)
Your kidding right! (lol)
if you need 12 and 28 screwfix has https://www.screwfix.com/p/bosch-self-cut-speed-flat-wood-drill-bit-set-8-pcs/5393V
Do you happen to know if these work with Makita's LXT range of drills? My dad is looking to do some serious renovation work on his house and these might make for a nice stocking filler (if compatible).
I have this, and a couple of thoughts - you need to have the lid fully open (a bit past 90 degrees) to be able to open the drawers- you can't' stick it at the back of a workbench against a wall (fear enough, it is portable) - it's fairly flimsy construction- the latch can (will) come undone when carrying it loaded if there's no padlock fitted, and the lid will warp fairly easily. - no ball bearings, as mentioned - the drawers will jam shut easily if something gets caught when closing. £20-£25 is it's true worth (and that's the price it spends most of the time at), at that price I wouldn't call it a bargain.
I have this and also the Halfords Professional 3-tier tool chest. If you want different compartments within the drawers of the Halfords Professional range of tool chests, then you can get different coloured plastic inserts made by "Sorta-Case" in 45mm, 63mm and 82mm tall organiser trays in varying sizes. The kind of thing you find in the multi-compartment screw boxes sold at Screwfix and other retailers. I fitted out most of my Halfords Professional 3-tier tool chest and its great for keeping things where they need to be and wish I'd come across them years ago. With the correct combination of sizes, these fit perfectly front-to-back and leave a little space on left or right. Cheapest place I found was: INTER TOOLS ONLINE
£18.50 with trade card (y)
I wish this was just a wee bit bigge
These are a fair price and what I paid around april. I also have the larger versions and these made a nice addition. The drawers don't have ballbearings and it doesn't come with non slip mat but not a deal breaker.
I wonder who got the power pack...
Great bit of kit
Use this myself monster of a tool, Once you go down the impact driver and seperate screw/drill driver you wonder how you ever got by. I have 2 x 5aH and these just run and run easily see a 2-3+ days worth of use on site per battery I'm pretty sure the larger batteries (4aH and 5aH) also increase the torque of the impact driver
True, but even with typical skin resistance, 240V gives plenty of current flow. Also, as it's ac, that's even worse and 50Hz is perfect for causing ventricular fibrillation Don't believe that mains voltage won't kill you. There are plenty of people that can't testify ihow dangerous it is.
van der graph generator 100 000V and does no harm think it is the current that kills you? 100mA to stop heart
Congratulations, you win todays prize for "Crappest Advice on the Internets".
230V can definitely kill you.
Agree - I paid £65 for mine and few weeks later went cheaper. Good drill but cold price ..
This has been £50 from Amazon on the last 2 Black Friday's. Might be worth waiting if not desperate to get one. However obviously a gamble.
Believe they have 2.2ah batteries according to a previous comment
Was 69 in jtf i got one good drill
I thought they are exactly same with two batteries?
RIP Stan Lee
12.5" for anyone wondering! Have seen these in store. I would not put tools in them, as they are not substantial. However, would be good for sewing items, fishing tackle, and hobby items, etc. They have been cheaper, but this is not a bad price.
gone up a pound since I bought mine a couple of months ago. Got one dedicated for soldering too :D
Thanks for posting - needed an extention cable too so got it over the £8. Voted hot (y)
So there's no way of getting this at £4.60 final price, by itself? It's a little bit misleading.
What the Nora is a handling charge.
You forgot to add postage charge, cold.
Either way you still have to spend over £8 to get it for this price (£4.60).
Not bad with a spare battery, looks very similar to the halfords one, these drills pop up with various badges.
Boyf absolutely loves this little thing! He's built all sorts of stuff for me using mine :)
Ugh..can"t believe it. Found it again!!! This screwdriver is absolutely fantastic!!!. Mine has already 2 years and still goes strong. I've built up my shed with this:)
I bought this tool at this price point last weekend as I needed it to build a desk and chair that I bough from Ikea. It is good enough at this price but not as powerful as a real drill. The charger is only 500 mA which is not massive for a mechanical device.
I have to agree, this tool has saved me hours and is an amazing bit of kit.
Impact driver is for heavy duty stuff. You would not use an impact driver for building IKEA furniture etc.
Echo what everyone else is saying, I paid full price a few months back. Utter garbage
Lmao, just look how spaced out all those bits are. All packaging and no substance. Check out the DeWalt set at Screwfix, yes it's twice the price but you get more than your money's worth.
They are poor quality. I had to return the set.
I bought a 10 piece wood set. £4 a set, everything else I have had from there has been pretty spot l on. Thought this was to good to be true
Can't be all bad if it's at 538deg heat!
Hi Greencode, Google Duoxim Arbor.
use a holesaw. You can get ones that enable you to fit 2 cutters onto the same bit. The first cutter will be the size of existing hole to guide the second cutter which will be the size of the new hole you want to make. I just changed some spots using this method
I'll be cutting quite a few different sized holes in the coming months so was hoping I could just buy this and therefore get different sized holes. Seems a bit of a waste buying a 82mm hole cutter for the drill for one hole.
I'm no expert but sounds like you'd be better off with a hole saw for a drill. More chance you'll end up with a neat and tidy hole.
Can anybody advise... I have a hole cut out of the ceiling for a spotlight but need to make the hole larger. Does the circle cutting tool require no hole to be there initially so it has something to grip to? Hopefully that makes sense.
Neither do we...
The physical power button sells it for me mate. I don't know why I keep holding back :D
Get one next time Buzz, they are awesome cases. Really smart having usb ports to the front for your retro style nes/snes usb pads and bonus of having a physical power button.
No, I hesitated ;(
@BuzzDuraband - did you get one tho?
Great I'll just go back to a year ago and pick a couple up (lol)
Got this same one. Well built and survived a very large decking project
got 2 @£10 each from homebase, about 1 year ago
Yes, Guild tools are great for the Diyer, got lots in my shed
Bought a cordless Guild drill which does a good enough job, I also had a guild multi tool which got well used before it gave up the ghost. Will take a punt on this saw as i am in the market for one. Heat added.
Just picked one up, and unless they have gave me the wrong one I can confirm it is a hammer drill. Dont know how good a hammer drill but for £30 I’m not complaining.
Concrete wall or plastered brick wall? If its a concrete wall then I very much doubt this would do the job. A plastered brick wall it should be fine so long as you get decent masonry bits. A hammer drill would be better though. For concrete, someting like this would be ok for the same budget. https://www.screwfix.com/p/energer-enb465drh-4-1kg-corded-sds-plus-drill-230-240v/63303?tc=QT4&ds_kid=92700022885040606&gclsrc=aw.ds&ds_rl=1241687&ds_rl=1245250&ds_rl=1244066&gclid=Cj0KCQiAw5_fBRCSARIsAGodhk9nzgPMyZplyPjkpwr91uTBRxndufCIWsPVgRhyHENDuAGzG8f-Dx0aAjosEALw_wcB
does the battery have the same fitting as worx products?
Depends on the type of concrete and how good the drill bits are
Save your money these are complete crap acrew heads broke on first use
You may want to read the comment again because, that's not what they said lol But I do agree with you. This is a decent little kit for fixing glasses, opening small hard drives and other things. (party) Heat
Totally agree. They're much better than the poundland junk.
bought some of these last year for Christmas presents for the tree they are quite good.
Contract matt is only for new plaster:
Not the same, the 'Contract' paint is better in terms of opacity and finish
Also this for a tenner for 10L - https://www.diy.com/departments/leyland-pure-brilliant-white-matt-emulsion-paint-10l/1335443_BQ.prd
Heat added and great song to hear when painting walls (lol)
in my arms xxxx
30kg? That's about a third of me.... ....how are you gonna carry the rest of me? ;)
(y) On the description (lol)
Same as 3.99 breakfast at Toby free refills at subway but they were deals I found on here that I did not know about and have saved loads since finding out about them these are still deals even though it's been that price for a while
I didn't know like many others so this is a deal please give people a chance that's what we are here for no?
Hotukdeals say to post invidividual item deals as opposed to posting a page with multiple, at least from my experiece.
Goodness me draper, you must be feeling the chill tonight? i think your multi posts may have annoyed a few.
