What are the benefits of purchasing a combi drill such as this as opposed to a separate drill and hammer drill? I have just purchased my first house that I am doing some DIY work on so would a combi drill such this be the best option in conjunction with an impact driver?

Thanks friend, I almost purchased this with my inheritance money but I will go elsewhere and seek out one with an added bag for no less than £15.99, appreciate the help.
Can you link it to a vacuum cleaner instead? I am not clear why people have voted cold on this? I have an electric planer that works well. Just need to be aware which way the blade is turning to avoid splitting the wood
Good price, but don't forget the dust bag adds £25 to the cost: https://www.amazon.co.uk/Bosch-2605411035-Dust-Bag-Planers/dp/B0014GSSOE/
Bought two of these over the years. Made one portable by mounting it on a old mk1 B&D Workmate got from a bootfair for a fiver.
I am building a working replica of Dick Dastardly's machine in Wacky Races. This will help. Hot
Einhell 2025 2000W 250mm Table Saw & Stand £99.98 https://www.toolstation.com/einhell-2025-2000w-250mm-table-saw-stand/p47537 5mm/0.5cm more cutting depth too
Thank you for your comments. If I can not find any better deal than this should be a deal (highfive)
This is no offer.. it has been £99 for very long time as previous comment said 3 years.. that's about right
Probably worth it for the adapter alone. I must lose one of those a week, minimum (cheeky)
To be fair I wouldn’t expect them to for £5, so not a cold vote.
Been using them on a torque drill fine. Impact driver maybe not. 😜
Prob ok if you are not using an impact drill, or they will just snap.
Nothing wrong to look after your money, I just don’t want to buy double.
This is often reduced to 150 at Toolstation. These are not brushless, they are quite an old design. The impact driver is no better than the drill. Ok for light use but you’d be better IMO buying a single brushless tool from their new range.
Milwaukee excellent quality.
I have these and for a 12v set they're very good. Excellent battery life and the impact driver drives a decent sized screw home without a pilot. It's such a pleasure working with such light tools compared to the 18v ones that now sit mostly unused.
If only they did a 1/4 and 3/8 m12 impact set
Yeah if you need more torque an 18v will offer more. Luckily I only occasionally need to drill masonry
haven't seen in a while such display of ignorance concealed by a thick layer of arrogance. impact drivers are just not meant to drill holes, don't know what you considera "precise"? maybe drilling a pilot hole on drywall to hang a picture? the impact on them is along the axis, so it doesn't work as the hammer function in a combi drill, and worse, it will destroy the tip of a sharp wood bit or spade with that impact. you can also drive screws with a hammer, why "faffing" with a driver, and if you drive larger screws...you need a bigger hammer
This is a great price for an excellent drill. I bought this about a year ago and its been a pleasure to use.
So you'd drill for a 7mm plug with an SDS? It's impossible to drill a perfectly round hole with an impact driver due to the nature of how it works. It may well be ok for a lot of applications but trust me, 20 years of being a joiner I can tell you you'd get laughed off site for using an impact driver for drilling. That said, if someone is more comfortable doing that then it's each to their own.
You couldn't be more wrong. I've drilled 100s of 'precise' holes with an impact with a chuck fitted, swapped for a bit and screwed, seconds, done. No faffing with a combi. And if you're drilling with any more than 1/4", you should be using SDS.
Each to their own but I have to disagree. If you're drilling precise holes or anything greater than 1/4 inch then you definitely don't want to be drilling with an impact driver. Afterall, that's not what they're designed for. You'd also be very limited with the type of drill bits you can use. A combi is better as a screw driver than an impact is as a drill.
Full price is £38, but even at that price its fantastic. Got it few weeks back and used it twice and impressed with its performance. It has plastic blades with a metal mulcher attached to it. Heat added!
10m length cord which I guess is very important spec , though they write in small print
Ordered . Can’t go wrong at that price
Thank you.. ordered
But once again....if you're not on prime....it's no good.
It's not bad, lucky I won a new one last week for £7.50 Inc post. .. the aukey sk s1 metal soeaker is much better . Got one from the Amazon sale via hotukdeal couple of weeks ago for £25. This speaker not much base, bit tinny, but its ok at the right price, 6w out out. It's loud enough, but sounds better if not pushed to the max. Battery life seems good. It's made more from hard plastics rather than the rubber material which this picture looks like.
Great price @Mrswitch :D
There’s a sliding mitre saw at wickes for £95 which is pretty good https://www.wickes.co.uk/Wickes-210mm-Sliding-Compound-Mitre-Saw-with-Laser-Guide---1500W/p/141161?utm_source=google&scid=scplp141161&sc_intid=141161&ds_rl=1255384&ds_rl=1255441&ds_rl=1256318&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIopyc9-HE4AIVy7vtCh2DKAsDEAQYASABEgKCKfD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds
Compound is the same thing, but this also has a sliding function, so more flexible. This is arguably better than a static compound saw.
This is a sliding compound mitre saw I believe? Not sure what do you think is difference between this and "compound" saw?
I'd be tempted to go for a compound over sliding.
Thanks I didnt realise there was also longer cable but before I build a workbench with it, i will use it in the garden so need extension anyways. Once workbench is built it will have it's own place with it's own plug close enough :)
No, my reply was also deleted, agreeing that 20nm is very low. Hot deals deleted both posts as the word s**t featured in the original post, profanity apparently.
Is this better than the Aldi one?
Thank you brought one this Morning
Thanks, that’s what I thought, so why do they include masonry drill bits :/

Left one of these to the recycling centre yesterday. I got it for around 40 quid from their own side in 2017 iirc, grade b or c or something like that. Worked fine for a few DIY jobs and then the it started to smoke (and sparks and actual fire later) I took it all apart and I could see part of the winding had black mark, shot possibly. Anyway, took the 240AC to 3v transformer, switch and laser out of it for DIY stuff, and the blade of course. Chucked the rest into recycling. Shame, it was a good saw.
Da with great luck a couple of passing brass rubbers were able to give assistance.
Actually I don't like the taste of bare metal. So I make sure the dog has a go.
Anyone found any stock?
I have the 240v version and it's excellent. Definitely the best saw I have. Well worth £80 if you can use 110v.
Tool only - no battery included. Shame. Just ordered one to collect, but won't bother now.
Mine also had the Glue Gun in stock, down from £40.00 to £21.75. I had bought one a few weeks ago for about £30.00 and very pleased with it.
:/ I have the orbital sander and the palm sander. Do I need this?
A vacuum will always be better.
Does a sander with a bin attached (like this one) stop as much, more, or less dust escaping than a sander with a vacuum attachment?
This laser level is actually, quite crap. The magnets aren't really strong enough or orientated in the right way to hold to plaster corner beads, so it's pretty useless. It'll be going back to be replaced with a good DeWalt one.
Try seeing a red laser in the day, in the sun suoerman.
Funny that every machine/tool i use working years nightshift on railway is red and iv never had a problem seeing it
The Camels, don't lie 8)
I don't think the dust is too bad on these. Not after recently chasing out sockets in red brick walls anyway! It's manageable enough.
I mean compared to a belt sander or random orbital which remove material much faster and dhas a far larger footprint. I wouldn't begin with a detail sander if I had lots of material to remove.....by the time you are finishing, the dust is finer sure, but you should be removing high spots and essentially polishing the surface. I also prefer to always use a vacuum hose.
You make masses amounts dust from these things. Gets everywhere.
If it's the B&D Mouse Detail Sander......isn't that much smaller too? It has a very narrow pointy tip for getting into areas the Bosch won't reach. Generally, due to size of either you won't be making huge amounts of dust, but I always prefer to use a vacuum hose. The difference in air quality afterwards is remarkable.
Depends. This has the inbuilt dust holder whereas the B&D has the vacuum attachment. The vac attachment one is much better for collecting dust but a bit cumbersome because you’ve got your vac attached.
I remember when I sold a Makita cordless power drill in the local paper. And then six months later, I received the very same one back as a Christmas present from my brother-in-law, minus the power pack.
I find locking switches more of a risk than a safety feature. I've got a grinder with the same sort of switch and it's ridiculously fiddly, especially if you're wearing gloves. Maybe this is more robust, idk. Decent price anyway.
Good price, but buy from FFX. Once amazon has driven out all competition, they won't be price matching
Have seen many injuries with angle grinders, have to say on investigation that none have been through proper use, so read the instructions and do the pre use checks and always use the right blade for the material
Dunno I'd prefer a two button start then soft press trigger button. Having a switch up front inherently means you've not got as much leverage with your right hand. A latched on angle grinder doesn't seem too good an idea to me; by the time you've unlatched it when summat goes wrong (a bite) the disc will be through cartilage and working it's way through the nearest bone. (fierce)
How does the Brussels compare to the ordinary ones? I bought mine (stanley fatmax) 2 years a go and have used it and abused it more then i expected i though it will just be for a few screws here and there i honestly was surprised how well it performs and two 18v batteries charging time 35min run time few hours intense usage damn well if you ask me. Wow cancel that i just realised that's the same drill what i have and it is not brushless! Like in the picture and the led light is still at the spot where you are blocking it with your trigger happy finger not at the bottom and i can't seem to see the battery checker
For the sake of £15 think I'll stick with the Worx model, seems a better buy, cheers Harry.
Stick with the worx. The stanley drill is a great drill, but it doesn't have the metal chuck, and it's not a brushless model. So if the Worx wasn't double the price stick with it. Both will be superb for your required use
I have this and it's hardly been cheap. Think I bought it for £89
I bought this today from b&q £90 https://www.worx.com/en_GB/drills-drivers/20v-max-lithium-ion-brushless-impact-drill-4.html I just do the occasional home diy, should I swap it for the fat max or keep the Worx drill ❔
I don't use my track saw very often (lidl one) but when I do, it's invaluable for cutting long straight lines (e.g. cutting shed flooring to size)
10 minutes in the workshop is never 10 minutes wasted.
Great price! Have a look at Peter Millard on YouTube, he’s made a few videos on them.
I got one about two weeks ago, typical Aldi they never reduce then same in each store. Even still online at £79 is still a good price
Your local ALDI? Online is still £79.99. I picked one up for £60 a month ago
Wish I had known about this before I bought her flowers!
11 in stock Newton Abbot

Yea sorry if no stock near you there is stock around the country so deal is ok to run just not at every location unfortunately.
