This is really good deal. Random orbit seems robe very expensive
All Sander Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2020
I went instore yesterday and was told that they aren't there until Thursday, can any one confirm this please? Rather than wait and find out I have missed it any way, lol!
This is exactly what I needed! Ordered thanks OP!
Thanks mate (y)
I bought this one: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/163488084176 I'm not trade so sand paper is sand paper to me... They don't last super long and I'm sure the Norton etc ones will last longer but meh, it has multi grits. Acceptable for diy. You can go for higher than 240 if you want silky smooth but I'd probably use wet/dry and by hand if I wanted any higher... The makita I have has the 8 hole config. You'll need go check what your one has.
Can you suggest some that you have experience with ? I don't want to rush and get the first one off ebay. Cheers
No problem. I’ll help anyone if I can. Feel free to message me if you have any other questions.
Again, thanks so much! This was always the hubby's area of expertise but one got to step up now, and with a bit of help I'll get there! (y)
There’s some here that will fit. They’re more expensive, and I’ve not used these ones, but they will get you going while we’re locked in. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00AVVHZE2/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_X88TEb5GPB5CR Tool station are struggling with stock, so it could be a while till they’re back in. I waited a few weeks for some fibreglass kits to come in, and they all sold out within a day and are out of stock again.
I just tried to order the toolpack ones, none in stock in my local store and aren't available for delivery. Dammit
I bought one for £20 in Homebase about 6 months ago. Don't get how this is a deal either. (confused)
Don't forget that if buying goods from Halfords, there is a 10% saving due to the Shell app, and you can get 10% discounted gift cards for Argos and Halfords from Cardyard
Seems to have been £40 last September, that’s the lowest I’ve seen it go. I was lucky enough to get the previous Challenge version for £35, but that was only because they were clearing out the Challenge line. Nothing seems to have changed except the name. £50 is a pretty fair price with the two-year guarantee I think!
Sounds good. What would the argos guild DA polisher discount to usually? Is £50 a good price?
Argos sell decent and very cheap Guild models, Halfords do their own. In between these ultra budget options of £50-£80 and the best more expensive ones (Meguiars is £250) I like the Menzerna DAS 6 v2. One of those in a kit with a few pads and polishes you're talking maybe £140.
I don’t believe either is, the ‘head’ tends to be chunkier on the DA ones and it’s always mentioned in the product description. Argos have a Guild dual action one for £50, they discount them occasionally if you’re not in a hurry - or there are cheaper models on eBay but possibly with a less favourable guarantee. I’m not an expert, but the DA versions always seem to be recommended for beginners as it’s much harder to damage your paintwork with them.
Just Google BEW 230BCA Loads of supplier s of extra sheets.
Got mine today, any ideas on where to get the sheets?
You buy cheap you buy twice, its best spending a bit more for something quality, they always come in or can be sold on if no longer required.
I'd be surprised if it lasted all day, I've had the misfortune of owning two, and neither lasted long enough to even use up the sheets that came with them!
Yeah you'll sand a door might take a while though depends what type of door it is too.
No but it comes with case of Corona....
Does it come with any face masks? Asking for a friend.
When they do a decent DA one i'll be interested, until then pass.
Yes, this is worth it if you have makita batteries already. The cost of batteries and charger on top of this will make this an expensive sander.
You could always push it vigourusly back and forth. 😁 I do agree that it is quite expensive for a sander and there are significantly cheaper options (hence the reference to sandpaper) but this seems like a reasonable price for a makita if you're into that market.
Marked as expired.
£40 now sadly.
Thanks. I haven't got this tool but a very similar macallister one from B&Q that looks identical, looks like it came from the same production line. Hukd always good for a bit of advice, thanks.
I don't own this tool but have you tried a universal adaptor? There are cheaper versions on eBay but I have used this one in the past at Amazon. Hot from me OP :)
I don't think so as that was asked in the q & a section on the product on the Argos page.
They are standard 140mm pads. Ish, 140mm pads fit, but not all of the dust extraction holes line up. I recently bought some mesh pads and they're great.
Worked for me, cheers op.
Mixed reviews and non standard sanding pads puts me off a bit . (confused)
Keep checking Amazon prices as they often do some deals. The 5.0Ah battery is great but full price is over £70! I managed to pick one up for just over £50 the other week on a daily deal. I did buy a knock off one for about £30 a while ago but it is a bit hit and miss with holding a charge so can't really recommend them. Can't go far wrong with originals albeit a bit pricey. Also, keep a look out for the Ryobi starter sets as these usually include a charger and a battery (or 2) of normally lower amperage but a couple I have bought have included a 4.0ah battery. These are the best way to get kitted out but only if you need the tool that's in the kit. Homebase have been selling them off in random stores very cheaply but a bit of a wild goose chase sometimes. Also Amazon have deals on the kits occasionally.
Well done for putting 'body only ' in the title ! Thanks (y) need a good review of battery prices that fit these.
Anyone know of any good T-cut deals (embarrassed) Thought this was a car polisher... (shock)
Well one review mentions a 100Litre industrial compressor not being enough to power it.
Best to give it a miss then, what with the price of bags of air that you'd need to feed it.
Noisy compressor running in the background. Peed off neighbours.
Just checked the reviews and most of them mention it being very air hungry so think I'll give it a miss.
Yes very true. On this one they and a few on Screwfix are noting the motor burns out quickly. I also hate that screwfix order the reviews best to worst rather than latest to oldest. Not very customer centric.
Ive noticed that B&Q reviews all have significantly lower reviews than Screwfix. Started to conclude that it might be Pro`s understanding the product better than an average DIY`er. Of course you need to look at what they are complaining about, but a dodgy nut or bolt can easily be replaced from the toolkit etc.
I thought this was a dog from the thumbnail
Thanks OP, more tools I don't need.
Cheap but these have motor issues, B&Q reviews are poor for same model.
Decent price, although I just got the Worx version from ebay for this price including a bunch of papers. Heat anyway.
It is this price quite often. Reasonable product for the price, OK for small projects.
Seems a good price ... Not sure why people voting cold.
They did, but they're now back in stock.
Anyone know how this compares to this one from Screfix? https://www.screwfix.com/p/mac-allister-msdls160-160w-electric-detail-sander-220-240v/902gf
They don't look like the standard detail sander sheets i know but a quick google shows cheap ones are available from toolstation.
Brilliant was after a sander (y) 🏻
They do if you register (standard 2 years) Also you need to have warranty cert if claiming after 2 years and invoice (which i lost). I'm trying to sent one od them back (bosch will give you FedEx prepaid label),but FedEx never picked up the parcel.
Doesn't the pro range have 3 years warranty?
190W :D The Parkside ones are pretty good. Only £12.99 when on offer and come with changeable pads, also comfy to use, no vibration white finger. (y)
Interesting. Perhaps the older ones are better but I have a green Bosch bought nearly 20 years ago which looks very similar to this and I've given it hell over the years and has never let me down. In fact writing that I've just talked myself out of buying one of these, though no doubt the old faithful will now die next time I pick it up :D .
Good point. We had two 18v bosch sanders. Both died just after a year of light ocassional use. Bosch makes great tools... Apart from sanders.
there was stock this morning, but looks to have gone/ sold out. will expire it unless anyone can find stock. cheers
Eesh none in stock near me! gutted! If anyone has stock near them, i'll happily pay the shipping costs and a bit extra for the effort if you can purchase one :) Tap me up :)
Nice price for the sander, as an average DIY'er Titan products are really good :)
It’s like hotscrewfixdeals this morning. :(
Just had mine delivered with no battery....
yep, mine was the same. Happy
It’s easy enough to contact Makita to confirm them as genuine. I’ve done it a few times with Makita batteries bought from amazon which came in brown boxes
Same, last few batteries I’ve bought have come in plain packaging though
Mine arrived today.... Battery not in a makita box just a little brown one but did say part of a set?
Not really... just a finer tooth blabe will do... takes longer but less roughness ;)
Keep talking and you'll be wearing a brass nickel double socket instead of specs
I'll plug you in
prices back up again
You can cut in a curved line with a jigsaw, and with the help of a drill you can cut shaped holes. Less fatiguing than a hand saw for bigger jobs. A good jigsaw is an appropriate tool for laminate. As mentioned earlier it's primary benefit is to make profile cuts, so you can shape the edges around pipes and door frames. You will get a decent finish with the right blade and your edges should all be hidden under skirting or beading anyhow.
I I got it via amazon global for £105 all in.
Their cordless multi tool with sanding attachment is pretty good for corners. Wouldn’t be without it now I have one.
It's a bare unit, what battery are you using?
Battery last for 15-20 minutes of constant work,
+1. It broke down to a lot of people, after very short usage - so pricewise it's great. Product wise - I would close this deal.
Reviews are so bad
Anyone know is there still any left in dunfermline?
Store specific, not nationwide.
Ah. Strange that it confused them that much.
Not in Plymouth
mine arrived today too! surprised when I saw the case!
Mine arrived today...with a HARD CASE!!! Flippin bargin OP! Nice one!
Yeah, it actually doesn't say that on the Axminster Tools shop page, but it does say it on the Bosch website... and in the user manual you can download from the Axminster Tools shop page. Go have a look :)
https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133230044651 £55 there if you want a case which some times is handy............ or £50 here but not in stock atm https://www.buyaparcel.com/bosch-gss-23-ae-1-3-sheet-sander-variable-speed-190w-240v-gss23ae-case/?gclid=Cj0KCQiA_rfvBRCPARIsANlV66MXnK6m2U2FwnbokO30zVxz9Ck_udZ5TCRpu8RGttxjbGq-heaqrNEaAtBMEALw_wcB
Ordered one, thank you
